What the hell? I don't get it?I presume that this is somebody's idea of a sick joke: somebody who knew that this company didn't have a habit of inspecting the toys that it bought in before distributing them. ___________________Isn't it enough to see that a garden is beautiful without having to believe that there are fairies at the bottom of it too?-Douglas Adams, Last Chance To See

I think it is someone who wanted to instill some terror in kids and parents. Someone who supports the terrorist cause and found a simple way to remind everyone what happened that day. Psychological terror.Mr. P. The one thing of which I am positive is that there is much of which to be negative - Mr. P.I came to get down, I came to get down. So get out ya seat and jump around - House of PainHEY! Is that a ball in your court? - Mr. PEdited by: misterpessimistic  at: 8/30/04 8:34 am

This is a serious example of bad judgment..however, it's up to the consumers to show that it's inappropriate. Think of it as an exercise in free speech. In Vino Veritas
