“A lot of Christians wear crosses around their necks. You think when Jesus comes back he’s gonna want to see a cross? That’s kinda like going up to Jackie Kennedy Onassis with a rifle pendant on.” - Bill Hicks

That electric chair isn’t quite recognizable. I’d prefer a guillotine. It could be called Hume’s Guillotine. Anyway it has the message as the Lenny’s Chair. If anyone made Guillotine jewelry at a modest price, I’d buy a dozen right away.

I’d like to buy this. Once again, where can we get one?
It’d be a very good talking piece, when conversing with christians, when they ask why one is wearing it.
