Dolly Parton gets the FUNKO treatment

Post by Bicycle Bill »

Just in time to celebrate her 77th birthday, Funko has released a pair of collectible figures commemorating iconic country singer/songwriter Dolly Parton.

Comes in two versions – one has her holding a banjo and wearing a bedazzled and fringed orange outfit; the other one has her holding an electric guitar and dressed in the white jumpsuit she wore for her appearance at Glastonbury in 2014.  Her signature blonde hair also appears to be slightly different between the two figurines.

Although I was sort of expecting each of the plastic figures to be sporting THREE of the oversize square shapes that have become the hallmark of the Funko line...

Yes, I suppose I could agree with you ... but then we'd both be wrong, wouldn't we?

I think someone should market a Dolly Parton life jacket.

Yes, no-one remembers Mae West these days.

I've never understood the attraction of these things (dolls? action figures?), but it seems they're everywhere. And like with htis one, most of them look only minimally like the party they are supposed to be based on.

Hey George, did you know Waylon and Willie?
The outlaws, I didn't know that at all
Did you know roger was king of the road?
You got it possum

Everyone knows hank's been in prison
We didn't know that
And Dolly's got two big reasons she's well known

They call me no show Jones
They call me no show Jones
Still I'm never on
Still never on
Instead of just singin' my songs, my whereabouts are unknown
They call me no show Jones
They call me no show Jones

I strongly agree. Although at one time I thought of her only as a treasure chest.

Dolly's coat of many colors gives new insight into Joseph's coat of many colors.

Dolly Parton’s Best Jokes About Dolly Parton’s Boobs

A couple of samples:
On Why She Never Ran for Public Office
“Don’t you think we’ve had enough boobs in the White House?”


On Propping Them Up
“I’ve always had big ‘uns, but I’ve had a little help lately. Yeah, well, it’s when my husband said, ‘Let me see your boobs,’ and I had to pull my skirt up, I thought I’d better get ‘em lifted.”
People who are wrong are just as sure they're right as people who are right. The only difference is, they're wrong.
God @The Tweet of God
