If I didn’t know better I would think that this bizarre Tiger Woods mask was created by his now very pissed off wife, Elin Nordegren. It’s out of stock, which probably means they aren’t making them anymore. Or they just ran out. Halloween was a little over a month ago, you know.
For next year, someone will make a Tiger Woods costume with a golf club sticking out of his head. You heard it here first.
Part of me wants to play the race card with this mask, but I don’t think that’s what happened here. Tiger does have rather, ahem, large teeth. (The image below is from MediaTakeOut.com, I didn’t do it.)
On the Howard Stern Show today, Howard commented that Tiger Woods looks like his long-time producer Gary Dell’Abate, aka Baba Booey. Maybe the people who made the Tiger Woods mask thought the same thing. Here’s a pic of a Baba Booey Mask. Kinda similar.
The thing is, when you see a black man with buck teeth, it brings up a lot of bad memories for folks. That’s what made me notice the mask. Well, that and the size of those choppers.
