Is this so you can rehearse operation overlord?


This would go very nicely with their related product at http://www.mcphee.com/items/11739.html

It's encouraging to see that modern children are being given access to good old-fashioned wholesome toys like this. It gives one hope for the future.



It’s best to be prepared. Just in case my motives are… misunderstood.

Why do they have to resemble caucasian country folk? Seems like reverse-racist stereotyping. I'd like to see a set depicting the pinkos at ANSWER and MoveOn. Now that would be something educational for the kiddies.


If you're shopping for kids at Archie McPhee, you need to rethink your parenting skills. Just saying.


How about the 'anti-war' rabble play set?


A choking hazard, surely?


J. J., what is "reverse-racist"? Non-whites portraying whites badly is every bit as racist a whites portraying non-whites badly. There's nothing "reverse" about it. Saying so implies that only white people can be racist. Which is in itself racist! Now my head is spinning....


Do they have a hippy protest/peace rally set? If so, is it available with patchouli/BO smell?


i'd prefer a Muslim-Street™ set if anyone has seen it.
you know the one... complete with burning & stamped-on US/UK/Danish flags.
(selection of burning western embassies available at extra cost.)


I'm reminded of the cover of a classic Johnny Hart comic collection (Wizard of Id), where someone yells "The Peasants are revolting!" and the King replies,...

"you can say that again..."


Speaking of angry mobs, this is charming.

“Denver firefighters have learned of a house full of urine being stored to throw at police… Protesters in other cities have used urine and faeces filled balloons to throw at police and there are concerns that could happen during the Democratic National Convention in Denver. Denver City Councilman Doug Linkhart has proposed an ordinance to keep protesters from carrying the so called urine bombs or other liquids in the protest areas.”


Like, peace, man.


just what is the technique for getting faeces into a balloon?
a man ought to know.

Rehearse, or reverse?

After all, Overlord's success failed to transform the West into a non-racist entity. So it hardly merited all the bother.

There must be a catchy slogan buried in there somewhere. "Down with Overlord, reverse reverse-racism!"

Or something.


Do they do flash mobs?

Practice, practice, practice.


thanks TimT.
but, practice what?
the dilemma as i see it, is that, uninflated, the balloon has little capacity (and also who's gonna want to blow-up a turd containing item?).
alternatively... if pre-inflated, there is obviously more room inside,.. but how to insert turd without rapid deflation and a faceful of stinky-brown?

(i think, on reflection, i may have too much time on my hands :)

The Thin Man

"just what is the technique for getting faeces into a balloon?"

Take a large capacity blender.
Pour in one and a half pints of stale urine (this should preferably have been collected in small coke bottles at least a fortnight before you intend to show those fascist pigs what a world based on sharing, peace and love will look like).
Add two medium to large turds.
Set the blender control to "Chunky Salsa" and blend for a second or two.
Take a large funnel and stretch the neck of the balloon over the end of the funnel.
Ensure that the seal is tight (best to get a fellow protester to hold it in place) and pour the slurry into the balloon.
The balloon will expand to hold the proof of your progressive politics.
Heres the trick - twist the balloon neck several times and seal with a freezer bag tie, leaving enough twisted neck above the freezer bag tie to enable you to tie a knot in the neck of the balloon itself.
The balloon is then ready for you to prove what an evolved, caring Obamaniac you really are.
Stick it to the MAN, Dude!


the appliance of science.
