PORTLAND, OR - June 3, 2003 /Send2Press Newswire/ -- Great American Holiday Collectibles Company announced today a new series of carved folk-art collectibles called the "Dumb Fuq Award" ( It's a carved caricature likeness of the person being "honored." The first Dumb Fuq Award recipient is actor and anti-war activist Tim Robbins, for what company president Dan Sherman calls Mr. Robbins' "borderline lunatic stance on the forced removal of Saddam Hussein from power in Iraq."

So what EXACTLY is a Dumb Fuq Award?

"First, it's pronounced 'Dumb Folk' because we're a family oriented company," Sherman says with a smile. "However, feel free to pronounce it any way you'd like. The Dumb Fuq Award is given to deserving comrades of the liberal left. We feel they should not use their celebrity status and media platform to sway public opinion on topics they are not qualified to sway public opinion on. So if and when they mouth off, we'll memorialize their irresponsibility by presenting them with a Dumb Fuq Award."

dumbfuq award Only 5000 of each character is issued. Each collectible figure has a unique inscription. "It serves as a daily reminder to boycott the recipient's work now and in the future. Purchasing their product supports their popularity and therefore their media exposure. So, if you support their livelihood you are supporting their ability to spew their idiotic ideas in public forums," Sherman says. "I call it censorship by disassociation."

"Our next Dumb Fuq Award will be given to Susan Sarandon," adds Sherman. "On deck for future awards are Michael Moore (we're trying to find enough wood to accurately carve his head), Martin Sheen, Janeane Garofalo, and Barbra Streisand."

Great American has simultaneously launched an affiliate program to give conservative or fun-related websites the chance to help spread the word about this somewhat eclectic collectible.
