The Q & A is almost as funny as the important warning: “WARNING: CHOKING HAZARD — Small parts. Not for children under 3 yrs.” (or non-liberal adults) Note: the action figure may or may not smoke cigarettes when you’re not looking. Also, what about that index finger? Hmmm…
Q: Does the box… Say Made In China?
A: Made in Kenya, just like the “soooperhero!!!!”
Q: If I like the action figures I already have, can I keep the action figures I already have?
A: It turns out that your old action figure was overpriced. Even though you have a pre-existing action figure, you can still buy this one, which is…
Q: Does it come with a teleprompter?
A: No, but if your purchase him, you will own him and can make him say whatever you want. Just think of yourself as Leftist Special Interest Group…
A Hayward, Calif., elementary school principal is making an afternoon game of cops-and-robbers considerably more difficult:
An elementary school will hold a toy gun exchange Saturday, offering students a book and a chance to win a bicycle if they turn in their play weapons.
Strobridge Elementary Principal Charles Hill maintains that children who play with toy guns may not take real guns seriously.
“Playing with toy guns, saying ‘I’m going to shoot you,’ desensitizes them, so as they get older, it’s easier for them to use a real gun,” Hill said.
If Hill’s implicit conviction that a child cannot learn to distinguish between a real gun and, say, this, is true, then we have a lot bigger problems than some after-school cowboys-versus-Indians.
