Ride the Curl

Ride the Curl Jesus is cool again! He rides a motorcycle, plays soccer and football, enjoys the occasional rodeo—plus, he surfs! What better reminder that Jesus is with us than a $30 plastic version of him engaged in one of our favorite pastimes? Eric Dyson, president and founder of Fishermen, Inc., wants the figurines to remind people that Jesus is with them in everything they do. It’s not all fun and games, though—there is also a “Homeless Jesus” figurine holding a sign that says, “Will Work 4 Food,” and a “Christian Soldier Jesus” in desert-camo fatigues with a gun and dove. Sadly, the figurines are made in China by the same group of factories that make Mattel toys. Beware: Let not the little children come unto Him.
