Sarah Palins gun-totting Rambo effigy to be burnt for Bonfire Night celebrations!November 1st, 2008 - 12:41 pm ICT by ANI
London, November 1 (ANI): U.S. Republican Vice-Presidential candidate Sarah Palins effigy will be loaded with explosives and torched at the site of the Battle of Hastings in East Sussex when Britons celebrate the Bonfire Night.
According to reports, the ”hockey mom” Alaska Governor has been made into a giant effigy dressed as Rambo, complete with bulging muscles, a machine gun and with bullets draped over her neck.
The annual bonfire, hosted by the Battel Bonfire Boyes, on November 1 will be topped off with the 20ft effigy of Palin.
“We just felt she was one of the most interesting characters in the American elections, the Telegraph quoted Matt Southam, chairman of Battel Bonfire Boyes, as saying.
“We like to add a little twist and because of her stance on guns, we made her into a Rambo-type character,” he added.
There will also be a tiny Barack Obama effigy in a tin hat peppered with bullet holes with ”O”Blimey” written across it, reports the newspaper. (ANI)
