UNDATED (CNN) -- She has tanned her way into pop culture notoriety and now the so-called "tanorexic mom" has been immortalized as an action figure.
In less than a week she went from complete anonymity to household name, with her own action figure, tanning bed not included. Even her impersonator on Saturday Night Live wasn't as disturbingly brown as the real thing.
The real tanning mom told reporters her evolving shades were more the result of creams and spray-ons than repeat visits to the tanning salon.
And though many commentators are starting to believe her when she says she really didn't bring her daughter into a tanning booth, still, it's hard to avert your eyes. jokes are already being recycled. Jimmy Kimmel had this one first followed by SNL. He said, "And now I have the look every woman dreams of Wile E. Coyote after the dynamite stick blow ups."
The "tanorexic" mom's action figure is for sale for $30 at herobuilders.com.
The real tanning mom, Patricia Krentcil, told the New York Post she saw the SNL parody and pronounced it well done. Not so well done, the tan lines on the action figure. What "tanorexic" would go in a tanning salon and only do their face? Turns out all of the bodies have to be interchangeable. So the "tanorexic" mom is sharing the same body as the Sarah Palin action figure.
And you can bet the "tanorexic" mom is an action figure whose only action is sunning, even on a cloudy day.
