Strangest Commemorative?

A recent conversation gave me an idea for a potentially amusing TFL thread...

What's the most unusual, tacky, and/or downright bizarre special commemorative edition of a firearm that you have ever encountered? Please include NSFW warnings as appropriate. However, please limit the conversation to guns that have actually been put into series production, even if the run was small; no one-offs please.

I'm interested to see what everyone comes up with.

Ruger is coming out with a new pistol in honor of members of the United States Senate and the House of Representatives.

It will be named the “Congressman”.

It doesn’t work and you can’t fire it

Yeah, in 2009

Lol I almost replied to that thread too until I saw the warning that it was old as hell.
Was just gonna say, looking at the close up of that Thomson on the first page; WOW that receiver is OPEN.You can clearly see the chamber, feedlips and feed ramp from the outside. How did that thing not jam constantly from dirt in the action?
