Where’s the Outrage?

posted by on October 17 at 14:35 PM

Wait until flamin’ John Paul II sees this:


I found this John Paul II “celebriduck” for sale at the Virgin Megastore in Times Square last week. Times Square is on the island Manhattan, which is also home to Bill Donohue’s Catholic League, last seen leading the charge against anti-Catholic stand-up comics and sacrilegious kink festivals. I fully expect the Catholic League to announce a boycott of the makers of Celebriducks and Virgin Megastores—I mean, anyone could buy this duck-billed representation of the pope, even kinky homos, and bathe with it. For shame.

Or maybe the Catholic League will let this one slide. Unlike those horrible homos at Folsom, the makers of Celebriducks aren’t insulting our Lord and Savior, right?

I love blasphemy.

I'm outraged at how ugly and dumb the duck is! Who buys stuff like that?
They should use them to picket with on Saturday!

jesus doesn't look very ducklike.

i don't think this will get much play with the perpetually [pseudo] outraged catholic set. right now their heads are exploding because a priest in SF gave communion to 2 of the sisters of perpetual indulgence, while they were in - get this - full DRAG! perhaps once they reassemble their heads, they will give this blasphemy the attention it so richly deserves [...don't hold your breath].

You can't see it in my bad photo, but Jesus has a duck bill too--with a beard painted on top of it.

Well Dan,
Ducks need a Saviour too.

Does aesthetic outrage count?

I've got the James Brown celebriduckie. . .

Maybe the Jesus and Pope RPIIcelebriduckies can get together and have a nice bath. Now THERE'S a photo to piss off the Donohues of the world...

I was in Vatican City last month and could not find a fucking pope-on-a-rope anywhere. What the hell is this world coming to? Talk about outrage.

Where is my celebirduckie?

What I want to know is, where are the Catholics rioting in the streets, waving placards screaming 'death to those who insult the Pope', setting fire to themselves and blowing up Muslims as a result of this outrageous and provocative act...

I am effing outraged!!!!! Screw the capitalist pigs!!!! The pope should be RESPECTED. Fuck 'em. Did I say I was OUTRAGED????!!!!!???

If you go to, you'll see that they also make, among other atrocities, an "America's Heroes Firefighter Duck". And a March of the Penguins Duck. No lie.
