Surly Curmudgeon

   The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire. The former are idealists acting from highest motives for the greatest good of the greatest number. The latter are surly curmudgeons, suspicious and lacking in altruism. But they are more comfortable neighbors than the other sort.

    I have no words...

    I am utterly speechless at the horrifying nature of this toy:


    On the good side of things, it appears the rest of the public has had enough as well, as evidenced by the user reviews and tags on the Amazon page for the item. So I guess there are people paying attention.

    I think I'm going to be sick.

    Hmmm. My theory is that you've been duped by a Photoshop scam, a grim commentary on our world. However, I did read a few "reviews" of the playset on and there were a few very funny tongue-in-cheek bits.

    It would be an elaborate scam to set up an Amazon store and start taking orders for something that doesn't exist.
