A Dozen Images to use as target practice

I'm not a man prone to violence, but there are some things that definitely get under my skin. I also don't carry a concealed weapon, but there are times I'd like to practice target shooting, whether it's with a gun, bow/arrow, knive, or whatever. I'd like something more interesting to shoot at than a bullseye.

I remember my brother in law practiced his pellet gun shooting with sides of Girl Scout cookie boxes. While I don't have anything against the Girl Scouts, the act gave me an idea ... what if I could create some things that I think would be OK to shoot at?

So, with that in mind, I present some things and people whose images I think would be perfectly acceptable for target practice. Things on this list tend to be bad or (in my mind) over-the-top-obnoxious.

Here's the list (in no particular order):

1. Osama Bin Laden
2.. Baby Bop, Barney, or BJ, or any combination therein
3. Digger the Dermatophyte (Lamisil ad)
4. Adolf Hitler
5. Eddie Haskell (from the "Leave it to Beaver" TV show during the 50's)
6. Any combination of the Teletubbies
7. Cousin Oliver (from the "Brady Bunch" TV show during the 70's)
8. Carrot Top
9. Mr. Opportunity (from the car ads)
10. The Doublemint twins (gum ads)
11. Snuggles the bear (selling fabric softener)
12. Herbie the Dentist (from the "Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer" TV movie traditionally shown around Xmas)

BONUS: Apparently Mike Dogen at Owen's World took the Teletubbies idea one step further. You don't have to wait for the printout to start the shooting gallery! (Hat Tip: Boing Boing/Cory Doctorow)
