Stickin' it to the gringos

Just in time for Mardi Gras, Mexicans are snarfing up voodoo dolls.

These dolls are dressed in red, white, and blue with the word "gringos" on the back. The effigies are of the U S national soccer team.

Here are the instructions:

"Hold a needle firmly between your thumb and index finger and prick slowly the part of the doll where you want to affect the opponent."

RadioShack had the good sense to steer clear of this promo but not Blockbuster.

That's right, good old Blockbuster Video thought it was a great idea.

Score one for Redbox!
Any bets the First Lady will make any comments about tasteless dolls this time?
Update: The black magic didn't work!
