Looking for a Crappy Christmas Gift? No, Really…

This is just the kind of crappy gift all of your kids need to find under the tree this year. When I say crappy, I mean it quite literally.

For those of you who don’t think this will be a hit with the kids, you are WRONG! This has apparently been one of the biggest sellers in Germany.

If you are looking to follow up with a Gassy New Year gift, it turns out that you’re covered there, too.

    Have you ever seen how German kids dress? It’s no wonder they like this weird crap.

    Most of my relatives in PA have these wooden moose things that, when you operate the head ( like a leaver ) dispense candy in a visually shitty fashion.

    I’ll bet that crap ain’t all that cheap either……

    Uh, I beg to differ. German people are, how to say, different. With a peculiar fascination for the product of human bowels.

    As the character Stan from SouthPark would say, “Dude, what the fuck is wrong with German people?”

    Whether it’s Germany or the U.S., I’m at a complete loss here. The videos appear to indicate that these toys exist, and imply that they are in actual manufacturing production somewhere, and available for purchase.

    To reach that point someone had to come up with the original idea, and I understand that humans have, and do, generate a generously broad spectrum of ideas on an equally broad spectrum of topics; anyone with internet access can testify to that.

    Beyond that point, however, someone had to devote time and energy to the engineering requirements to design and manufacture said toys, develop a costing structure, produce a list of requirements for the raw materials, create a bill of materials for the individual parts, schedule production time and resources in a manufacturing facility, design and create post-manufacture packaging, engage a distribution network of some sort, and perform all the behind-the-scenes financial wizardry to make it a profitable venture.

    Somewhere in all that, was there not a single grownup involved who was capable of making rational evaluations and decisions ?
