I’ve got four questions for ya…

1) WTF?
2) WTF?
3) WTF?
4) WTF?

What about the plague of poor product ideas?

From the seller’s website:

Ages 3 & up Keeps the kids entertained during Passover. This plush yellow plagues bag contains representations for all of the plagues (not necessarily in the correct order):

* A spooky eyed drop of blood
* A Frog for frogsĀ—of course
* A Giant Lice for lice.
* Cow for cattle disease
* Black Locust for locusts
* A white satin lump of hail
* A black cube of darkness
* An icky boil on a piece of flesh!
* A snarling lion’s head for wild beasts
* and last of all a very sad head – for death of the first born.

The frog, lice, cow and locust wriggle and roll their eyes, quiver, buzz and move when you pull their string and are apx 4.5″ long.

So not kidding, people. My people – first Manischewitz and now stuffed boils?! Stop the insanity!

Also – who wrote the catalogue copy for this plush sack of terror? “An icky boil on a piece of flesh!” – note the added exclamation point. Because, really, isn’t the best part of every Seder dinner the mentioning of the boils? Who wouldn’t want a plush, snuggly boil? “A Giant Lice for lice.” – Isn’t “louse” singular for “lice?” and does this count as a description or a political statement? Lice for Lice! Similar to the 3rd party slogan “A frog for frogs!” Finally – “last of all a very sad head – for the death of the first born” – is it really the death of the first born that’s being depicted here? Or just the cabinet-of-horrors contents of Collene’s desk drawer?!!!!

    I really don’t even know what to say about this. My brain cannot compute. Who would buy this? Besides Karen, “of course.”
    Who writes like that?

    Also, my drawers are clean! I mean, my desk drawers are clean. You want to see for yourself? Call ADA Casey Novak and get a warrant.
