File Under-Society is Doomed

Nothing says, "Happy Valentine's Day" like a pole-dancing plush animal that gyrates and sings. I'm not a prude, but really? Really? This is right up there on the tasteless index with red undies twisted into the shape of a rose. Who in their right mind would present someone with this? God help us, I suspect this was intended as a toy for a child.

Know what makes a nice Valentine's gift? Flowers. Got that? Flowers. Not pole-dancing toys.

I thought that pole dancing plush critter was some sort of paper towel holder. HAH! You know that thing's made in China, I wonder what the Chinese think of all the kooky things they make for us westerners.

Everything Paco Rabanne does honks.
I have that same diamond & ruby waterfall ring! It was my mom's.
Those heart biscuits look divine, so does that satin jacket.

I'm sure a plushie fetishist could have fun with it. Not sure if anyone else would get much from it.

Truly, we are living in the end times.

Paper-towel holder! I wonder if someone will buy it and repurpose it? "Happy Valentine's Day honey, here's some Bounty!"

I liked the original Metal, but this version...I don't know. There's soemthing that smells dead and rotting about it...and not in a good/interesting way.

I'm sure a sociologist could explain it, but the crassness of late is really startling. They ran an ad during the superbowl that showed women hobbling into a doctor's office on frame walkers and eventually they confess their husbands have been visiting a testosterone clinic. I guess that was supposed to be funny, but I really resented having to explain it (and what was wrong with it) to my eleven year old son. Yep, end times.

Sings? Sings what? No, I withdraw the question. This is really awful.

I didn't bother pressing the switch to find out. And yes, it is awful.
