You can now buy a toy of the bat Ozzy Osbourne decapitated with his mouth

It’s been 37 years since Ozzy Osbourne bit the head off a bat.

The Black Sabbath legend caused a huge outcry in 1982 when he bit the head off a bat during a live show at Veterans Memorial Auditorium in Des Moines, Iowa.

The bat was thrown on stage by a fan and presumed to already be dead.

Now, Osbourne has commemorated the momentous events’ anniversary in the only way he could, really… by releasing a cuddly toy version of the poor creature.

Oh, and it comes with a detachable head.

Announcing the Christmas-list essential on Twitter, the rock icon wrote: “Today marks the 37th Anniversary since I bit a head off a f***ing bat! Celebrate with this commemorative plush with detachable head.”

The officially merchandised bat will set you back $40 – although, pre-sale for Ozzy’s winged little victim has already sold out.

Online, the products description reads: “The Ozzy Osbourne Plush Bat is a web exclusive. Bring the legendary moment in rock history to life with this soft toy Plush Bat, featuring the Ozzy Osbourne logo and a velcro detachable head.”
