Cecil the Lion to be immortalized as a Beanie Babie


#1

[Read the post]


#2

To top it off, they gave the beanie babie the sad looking eyes on any toy I have even seen


#3

What do baby lions with big sad eyes eat?


#4

… and in 20 years, it’ll be worth millions! MILLIONS!

(on a related note, you can’t spell “millions” without “lions”)


#5

Whew, finally. IT’S THE RIGHT THING TO DO!


#6

How is this better than just sending the money directly to the charity?


#7

Motivates others who aren’t that quick to give to charity to give to charity because of a plushie. Like I am feeling right now.


#8

Beanie babies still exist?


#9

You don’t get a toy lion doing that.


#10

Still, LET’S MAKE A QUICK BUCK


#11

This will go great with my Cecil the Lion commemorative coaster set!


#12

It will be the perfect touch to my “Cecil the Diesel” F-450 – lil’ Cecil sitting on the dash next to my plastic jesus:


#13

Exactly. It’s all about keeping it klassy.


#14

Sad baby gazelles?


#15

I’m wondering which results in more dead animals:
1 rich white guy trophy hunting a lion?
Making a bunch of disposable plastic based stuffed animals and distributing them worldwide?

(my bet is on the latter…)


#16

Of course if I bought one, I’d have to by a potato gun and take shots at it.


#17

Well they have to gut and stuff all those factory bred baby lions to make the toys.


#18

That’s so cute! I’m going to buy one and mount it on a plaque!


#19

Too soon? It’s too soon, isn’t it.


#20

Seriously, I think someone could make a nice little eBay business selling them for a few months.
