The New Family Values

Now that we have made it over the hump, on our fast track to European socialist culture, I wonder if we will start seeing toys like this on the Christmas shelves.

Tesco today agreed to remove the product from the Toy section of the site, but said it will remain on sale as a Fitness Accessory, despite the fact that the product description invites users to "unleash the sex kitten inside".

It even comes with some monopoly money, so the little boys in the playground can learn to tuck the bills in the right spot.

I suppose it's amusing, right up to the point your little daughter gives Santa a lap dance and asks for one.

I know there are portable poles for the adults...meow...BUT what the frak are they doing putting this in a toy section for children. How utterly stupid. "Duh" is not strong enough a term, but I am kind of shocked. I shouldn't be, given our present lack of common sense and morality (I'm one to talk).

It used to sit right between the "Junior Meth Lab" and "First Time Defendant Play Set"

Is it just me or does it seem people can't get sleazy enough, fast enough? For Heaven's sake--LET KIDS BE KIDS! Maury's Who's the Daddy shows will outlive him! Trashy is as trashy does!

There are no absolute rules of conduct, either in peace or war. Everything depends on circumstances. - Leon Trotsky

That type of relative philosophy, applied to morality, makes it easy to lower the bar so slowly, it takes outsiders to detect the outrage.


Heh. Just think of the bundling options, like Junior Crime Wave: Season One – The Aldous Huxley edition.

Ssssteve – Unfortunately, seeing is believing.
