Looking for a last-minute gift for Mother’s Day? Here’s a thought: Instead of showing Mom your appreciation for everything she is, why not try showing her your gratitude for everything she’s not? If you decide to go that backwards route, then be sure to pick up HeroBuilders.com’s Tanorexic Action Figure (left) based on the burnt-to-a-fake-crisp mom Patricia Krentcil.
The Connecticut-based company is selling the action figure for $29.95 a piece, touting it as “A perfect gift for your tanned BFFs.” Because what better way to show your friends and family you care than by bestowing them with a red-faced hero with tanning superpowers?
Krentcil is currently facing child endangerment charges after allegations that she brought her then 5-year-old (she’s since turned 6) into a tanning bed. Since the news broke last week, Krentcil has set pop culture ablaze, with pokes from Bill Maher, Jimmy Kimmel, and receiving the grand honor of an emulation by Kristen Wiig on Saturday Night Live this weekend.
Watch a toast-making Wiig smoke after the jump. And, as a friendly reminder, don’t forget Mother’s Day is just 5 days away.
