Innocent Toys Gone Bad

BB's birthday was in August. He is in love with Spiderman, and was thrilled to open up this little number. It's motorized, and the bubblewand/hand dips down into a reservoir filled with bubble solution and raises back up to his mouth where the bubbles are blown. Hehe, blown. Anyhoo, picture this whole scenario in your head. I'll give you a minute. Do you get it now? That's right, Spiderman is giving the bird, over and over and over. Thanks grandma.

A couple of months ago my sister and I were in the toy department of wal-mart looking for a birthday gift for my neice. I walked past this car and just happened to glance down at the name. I stopped dead in my tracks and immediately whipped out the ol' cell phone. My sister asked what I was doing and, stifling childish laughter, I told her to look at the name on the box. She rolled her eyes and said "28. You are 28 years old." Whatever, it's still funny, because where I come from, chub means something entirely different. I can just hear BD now asking if baby wants to visit chub city tonight.



NO rolling my eyes. I would have thought the same thing about CHub City. I swear that people in the toy business do that shit on purpose.
At a glance I thought that Spider Man was doing something with his chub er I mean manhood.

lol @ chub.

my BB loves toy story and Woody, and Buzz Lightyear and all the other characters, so he has 87 little woody and buzz figurines. BS (2yrs old - barely speaking) loves to play with woody, (snickers) and loves to run around the house yelling "WOOODY!"

i usually giggle a little when it's just me and the kids, but when my mom and/or sister are there, we CRACK THE F UP and the kids wonder why we're laughing.

btw, love spidey giving the finger. hilarious!

It's the little things in life that make the children worth having. LOL!
