strange action figures

My friend Bandlady went to a Leonardo DaVinci exhibit in Chicago a couple of days ago and there purchased a Leo action figure. On her blog, she says that the same company who made Leo also made an "Obessive Compulsive Man" action figure. Since I have OCD, I decided to check it out. Here he is:

My two-year-old son has one of the Jesus action figures and is a very satisfied customer.

What was it like having cast of yourself made for that action figure!! :) Just kidding. I think that they sometimes exaggerate the term "action" figure. I remember having the GI Joe and the Johnny West guys when I was a kid -- we just called them toys, not action figures. I bet you were a Ninja Turtle kind of guy!

Later

P.S. -- Why didn't they put glasses on you! Ha!

I was a Ninja Turtle guy actually, but not until 8th grade. earlier on it was gobots and starwars.

When I saw the "Deluxe" Jesus action figure advertised (they have two choices), I thought to myself "Does that mean he comes with extra miracles?"

It is pretty spooky how much the OCD man looks like you!

you see, everyone who has OCD will eventually end up looking the same. we all have the image of what a perfect human would look like, and we're relentless in our pursuit of becoming that person. so, naturally, we will look alike... if you're the real deal that is. if you find someone who claims to have OCD and doesn't look like me and OCD man, then you probably shouldn't believe them. they're just using it to sound cool, just like people who suck and giving you their undivided attention, jokingly say that they have ADHD, and so you'll have to excuse them. they're trying to be cute to cover up the fact that they're being rude. if they don't have the ritilin to back it up, they're probably not the real deal.

you will all start to look alike if you have the same "hair stylist"

ha... not a chance! my hair stylist is my secret weapon to keep me one step ahead of all my other OCD friends.
