Crass Commerce Releases George W. Bush Voodoo Doll For Hurricane Relief

Share Article

Crass Commerce has announced that it has developed, and is distributing, the George W. Bush Voodoo Doll as an unconventional, yet powerful therapy for hurricane relief.

Following completion of extensive research and testing, Crass Commerce is releasing the George W. Bush Voodoo Doll, an unconventional, yet powerful therapy that has the potential to bring relief to millions.

The devastating ferocity of the Gulf Coast hurricanes opened our eyes to just how destructive nature can be. We are also now able to see the destructive consequences of an administration consumed by greed and riddled with incompetence. The tragically inadequate government response to these events will have an impact that will linger long after the region is rebuilt.

It is in honor of New Orleans that Crass Commerce developed this uniquely appropriate therapy to promote recovery. What better way to hasten relief than by using New Orleans' own age-old art of Voodoo to enforce accountability on a president that has never deigned to accept any.

While recommended for those affected by the woeful response to the natural disasters in the Gulf Coast, it can also be effective for anxieties brought about by:

  •     WMD Deficit Disorder
  •     Social Security Privatization Anxiety
  •     Runaway National Debtitis
  •     Environmental Wasting Disease
  •     Human and Civil Liberty Deficiency Syndrome
  •     White House Cronyism
  •     Media Bias Virus (read for more on this)
  •     And More...

These Voodoo dolls are authentic recreations of dolls produced by Marie Laveau's famous New Orleans House of Voodoo. They come packaged with instructions and pins are included. And since the need for relief is broad and ongoing, a portion of the proceeds will be donated to the America's Second Harvest hurricane relief fund. America's Second Harvest, The Nation’s Food Bank Network, is dedicated to creating a hunger-free America. Their program feeds over 23 million hungry Americans each year and 98% of all product and financial donations received go directly towards feeding hungry people rather than administration or fundraising, according to a Forbes Magazine study.

The Bush Voodoo Doll is, “…the perfect way to release any pent-up frustration aimed at the President,” says Fred Johns of Something Cool News. Mark Howard, the Crass Commerce founder who insists on describing himself as a "fine artist" while making air quotes with his fingers, said, "It's gratifying to be a part of something that will surely bring hope and well-being to so many who have suffered through this administration." He also praised the engineers at Crass Labs who continue to work on new dolls, like Arnold Schwarzenegger and Paris Hilton, whose release will be announced upon completion of testing.

Product Disclaimer: The primary value of this voodoo doll is therapeutic and is designed to benefit the owner rather than harm the subject. It provides relief through catharsis. Crass Labs has certified that no humans or animals have been harmed in the production or operation of this device. This product is not recommended if you have recently undergone sensory (of humor) depravation therapy or are a practicing Snake Handler.
