I really hate blegs, especially when they’re this … specific, but I need a favor from you all. Can one of you fine readers possibly find it in the goodness of your heart to come over to my house andFEBREEZE MY BRAINS OUT OF THE CARPET?
Some concerned parents have contacted the Mattel toy company with allegations that one of its dolls utters words which promote Islam.
The Little Mommy Cuddle ‘n Coo dolls are manufactured by Fisher-Price, which is part of the Mattel toy empire. However, a number of parents contacted the company when they heard the doll say these words: “Islam is the light.”
Because I don’t know if this is a product of combining too many late-night Chucky viewings with chug-a-lugs ofPowerthirst and a constant soundtrack of Little Green Footballs’ The Fucktard-Driven Life Motivational Podcast or what, but who the holy blue hell sits around listening, over and over, to messages in things that you pull a string to make them talk, until they start sounding like the utterances of all your deepest fears? I mean it, who does this? This is like … we’re one step away from thinking the toaster is sending you messages from Elvis, here. This is that close.

I so badly want someone to start a ministry or outreach program for these people, these people who think the whole world is a fun-house reflection of Free Republic. Perhaps one of our nation’s many super-duper-mega-marketing-outlet-church complexes could include, between its “Selling Your Crucifix Nail Necklances on Etsy for Fun and Profit” seminars and “Jesus Wants You To Date Insecure Loud-Talking Cell Phone In The Bathroom Stall Guy” re-education summer camps, a sort of “Stop Being Such A Goddamn Crazy Narcissist Because Most Muslims Don’t Know You Exist You Doofus” mini-course for people who would otherwise be monitoring the white noise from the washing machine for subliminal Islamofascist propaganda. Perhaps their need to be important sentinels standing on the walls manning the battlements in the war on terror could be channelled into something useful that way.
Even if it’s making lanyards, for fuck’s sake, it’s got to be more beneficial to society than THIS.
