Web Wednesday: Poo Poo Platter...

Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you; Web Wednesday! Today's entry comes to us from the world of toys!

Here's today's entry. Wait. Once you go to the website, click on "Tanner Dog", and tell me what's wrong here. That's right, Barbie now has a dog that poops, and you get to clean it up! Now, I don't claim to be the brightest bulb on the tree, but when I was a kid, I tried to get out of having to pick up the dog's poo. Nothing inside of me wanted any part of a toy that taught me the joys of picking up the fecal matter of an animal. Mattel, when you add the element of responsibility to your toys, you take away the very reason why kids play with them: to get out of their responsibilities! Stop it...

I'm more concerned as to why you were on the Barbie website.

I love how the commercial says something about the dog being "potty trained", when it should probably describe it as "this toy dog can take a toy dump in your hand!"
