Kenyan Village Cashes In On Simpsons

Simpson Carvings

This short Reuters video tells the story of how soap stone carvers in the Kenyan village of Tabaka are earning more money than ever by turning out delectably off-model carvings of Simpsons characters. In particular, the shot of the villagers trying to watch an episode of the Simpsons is priceless. According to Reuters, the village has an official license from Fox to produce these figurines. Now the question is, where can one purchase these statues?

UPDATE: Brew reader Hunter writes in the comments that the statues will soon be available here.
