I think it says more about the parents than Hasbro, but I get the point, so to speak

Icing on the cake

Icing on the cake

Parents furious with toy maker for including phallus-shaped icing tool in baking kit.

Hasbro is under fire from parents who are outraged over a penis-shaped part in a Play Doh cake decorating set.

The toymaker has been attacked by moms and dads who bought the innocent-looking Sweet Shoppe Cake Mountain Playset for their loved ones – and were shocked at the toy’s phallic connotations.

The piece in question, which is around the length of a thumb, is a mock frosting applicator, which the company refers to as an ‘extruder’. It is one of many parts in the $20 set.

Next, these same parents will be insisting on veils over their grocery’s banana section.

    I guess it’ll be the dog that gets to lick the bowl, as it were.

    My thoughts and prayers are with those families who will no doubt be cursed with the sin of perverted homosexuality after buying this toy.

    Granted, it’s stupid. But, on the other hand . . . what is going on in the minds of toy designers? Are they emotionally stunted oblivious boobs (no double entendre intended)? Or a bunch of perverts?

    Dude –
    I do not think that is a penis shaped Dil-Doh. I think it is a butt plug. Does that make the whiny little parents happy?

    Somewhere there is a joke in here about the size of that thing and the likelyhood it was made in China.

    Here I thought my New Years Eve wouldn’t be fun alone. I bet if I dash out to Toys R Us now they’ll have one of the old model “extruder” playsets left on the shelf. 🙂

    If it vibrates, too, I might just have to get a little baking kit as a post-Christmas gift to moi.
