Jules Crittenden writes at BostonHerald.com, "Move over, Jesus. Make room on the dashboard for Mohammad . . . Bobblehead Mohammad.
A former Marine is hawking the nodding Mohammad doll at his Web site, www.dashboardmohammed.com at $22.99 a pop . . . expect two to four weeks' delay in shipping due to high demand, 10 percent of all sales to go to Tim Ames' beer fund.Continue reading, "Customers give the nod to Marine's Bobble Mohammad."
"We've sold 200 in the last six hours," said Ames, 28, of Hawaii. He acknowledges he is risking a fatwa, although he hasn't received a death threat yet.
