    Inappropriate product placement ftw!

    (This was in the Kids Only Market on Granville Island, Vancouver.)

    Mommy why is that man's skin peeling?

    What you wouldn't want to let your kids match people get bombed? What kind of mother are you?

    ah... hmm... sure. It's... ehm... educational??

    Oh, yes...right there where it belongs beside Baby Einstein Builds a Bomb and Caillou Ravages Roadkill.

    Had to be a teenage shelf stocker's idea of fun!

    LOL! Can't let life be too happy for a kid.

    Hmmm...Miyazaki's branching out a bit, isn't he?

    I had to teach that book to 6th graders... Maybe they used puppets to drop the bomb?

    Well, at least it's not porn! ;)
    Welcome home!

    What? Your kid doesn't show interest in the atom bomb and massive death? Really? Mine either.

    August 19, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterJennifer

    oh, come on! atomic bombs are good times. yay america!

    August 19, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterJenni

    A little atomic bomb never hurt anybody sweetie.

    My kid couldn't care less about bombs,
    too much reality is not good for people.

    They made my ostensibly Jewish kids read Anne Frank in fifth grade. Not sure that's that much different.

    it's probably a kid version like for early readers? The school here gives our kids books about scary earth quakes. 5yrolds and earthquakes? oh and btw kids that are have bad night terrors.

    Oopsie! LOL

    That's there for the parents. After being exposed to all the kiddie crap, you're probably gonna wanna blow something up..

    what's next? The Taking of Flight 82 or whatever the name of that movie was about the plane that landed in the fields in PA? I guess if they are going to ignore history in the schools, they have to try and hit them at the video store....

    surely this was just someone put it in the wrong spot...walking around the store, carrying it, and gets to the kiddie section and changes their mind - hey lets take Pippi Longstocking instead, adn since I am a lazy bastard, I will just leave this one HERE in its place....

    So funny.

    I sometimes think of my little man as an atom bomb...

    August 19, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterK

    Bombing and Children. I don't know, it seems to me like there's a lot in common there.

    August 19, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterLeanne

    Ha! That's funny. Maybe that was to make parents feel better about shopping with their kids. They can file that experience under "I guess it could be worse"

    August 19, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterFoN

    Oops!

    Educational material.... that's all I can guess.

    August 19, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterMs. Salti

    What was it, Sesame Street that often had the segment, "Which one of these things is not like the other?" - it's all part of a kids education.

    August 19, 2009 | Unregistered Commenterslacker-chick

    maybe it was an episode of "Spongebob" Plutonium pants!

    August 19, 2009 | Unregistered Commenterotin

    Maybe Barney will get a little singed? Or put those Teletubbies beside the Hiroshima video, what say?

    Kids like things that go boom, what's it to you?
