I grow increasingly frustrated, and appalled, and as a parent, frightened by our country's current obsession with being stupid and willingly embracing ignorance.
Why is it a great, wonderful, height of achievement to be a dumbass?
Is this really what we want? Is this a great goal for a nation like ours?
I really hit the wall today - and it was either shout at the innocent clerk or write a nasty letter (I might still) or rant online.
So, please tell me what you think of this genius of a product, clearly aimed at kids;
Erasers. "Yummy Erasers"! Great, choke-sized pieces of rubber not only designed to look like candy, but even named YUMMY.
No problem there!
I might add, the store where I saw these had them at the checkout counter NEXT TO THE CANDY.
OK - I see things differently as a parent, so maybe I'm off the wrong tangent here. But, what the *&^%?
Does anyone think this is a good idea? Would anyone buy this shit?
Yes, you can tell your child it's NOT candy. But what if you have multiple children? Let's say one is a bit older, understands it is not candy, but leaves the eraser out somewhere where their toddler sibling can grab it?
This isn't just badly manufactured, and/or poorly designed toys or something. It is made to LOOK like CANDY. It is clearly PITCHED to KIDS.
Why is this shit even created, produced, and sold?
I really hope no one buys this crap.
