Lileks remarks on a Che Guevara doll he found in a card store. It's not like Lileks to miss a trick in googling a link, but he does. So I did it for him.

Ah, post-modern ironic attitude. Har!
Che's part of the Little Stink -- oh, I mean -- Little Thinkers series of dolls, which includes Einstein, Freud, and artists like Monet, Kahlo, and Van Gogh, who I did not realize classed as "thinkers". ("Little Thinkers" might refer to the people who buy them in the belief that they're intellectuals, I suppose.)
The Einstein doll is cute:

I want a Nietzsche doll. Nietzsche -- or Stalin, take your pick. Could also be Hitler if you squint. There's also a Karl Marx.
The Freud doll plays music, just in case he wasn't creepy enough.
