(Newser) – Cheer up, Limbaugh fans. Sure, your favorite rotund radio host is losing advertisers left and right, but at least he's being inducted into the Hall of Famous Missourians, and you can own a piece of that history. The sculptor producing Limbaugh's bust for the Hall will make an additional six copies for collectors, the Washington Post reports. You can have Limbaugh's noble visage on your mantle for a mere $15,000.

Limbaugh's induction into the hall has been controversial for some odd reason, but sculptor E. Spencer Schubert promises the bust will be a true work of art. "If it were left to sculptors to choose who was honored with portraits, the entire history of portraiture would look dramatically different," he pointed out earlier this week. Still, the president of the gallery representing the sculptor says that critics are welcome to buy, and then destroy, the busts, suggesting, "They can use it as a boat anchor or target practice."

The last Rush "bust" involved the cops catching him with bottles of illegally-prescribed Viagra on his way back from a Dominican Republic (allegedly underage) prostitution trip

Couldnt you get the same thing by buying a random cheap bust of someone else and just melting a bag of rancid marshmallows over it? You wouldnt even need to take them out of the bag first.

Luckily the Hall of Famous Missourians fits neatly between the male and female bathrooms of the St. Louis Waffle House. No not that Waffle House, the other one, the good one.
