Wednesday night, I stopped at two Target stores on the way to my mother-in-law's. One of them had about 4,876,927.3 of those fugly "Han"/"Chewie" "Transformers." (I use quotes because I don't consider any of those to be truly accurate. It's just two turds that combine into a bigger turd. This is so serious, I can't even use the standard SSG joke and spell it "terd.")
That was the Target with fewer of these wastes of plastic.
Target had a Black Friday ad with these turds for $15. (Personally, I wouldn't take one if they gave me $15.) Mrs Chuxter informed me that one of the idiots on Good Morning America or some other stupid but popular show demonstrated these turds on the show, without getting poop on his hands, and--evidently under the control of an Al Qaeda mind control device so that they could wreck our economy by getting people to pay money for poop--actually described it as "cool."
By noon today, every Target seems to have totally sold out of these.
On the one hand, we should mourn the stupidity of those who bought them. They are wasting our valuable oxygen.
On the other hand, we don't have to look at these cow-patties-in-a-box for months to come. Well, at Target, at least.
However, this is going to send a message to Hasbro that people want this doodoo. And so, we'll see more and more stupid pieces of crap, which Hasbro will try to justify as they continue to deny us of high-demand figures like Yarna d'al Gargan and Hermi Odle.
