    PFFFFTTTT! Any self-respecting frog can absorb oxygen through his skin.

    But seriously . . . what were they thinking?

    “Did you try out the new mask design?”

    “Yes. The subjects jumped around in an agitated state making croaking noises. Then they collapsed, perhaps from exhaustion over all the fun they were having.”

    “Excellent!”

    “Well, it turned out they were dead.”

    “Ah. Sad. Well, it is not too late to change the box copy. Perhaps ‘Lots of fun for the rest of your life!’”

    Perfect for Grandma’s euthanasia party: fun, festive, _and_ functional!

    Designed by Dr. Phibes?

    Who could have possibly seen this one coming?  

  5. Bad design because the toddlers would turn blue instead of the expected green.

    I’m pleasantly surprised it was recalled for safety and not for copyright or trademark infringement. It looks a lot like Kermit.

    Couldn’t have been made in China, could it?

    Oh, rats. There were a few troublesome urchins on the block that I wanted to buy one of those masks for.

      If you check the retail stores of countries with much lower safety standards, you might still be able to! And probably at quite the discount as well!

    Sigh. R&D just ain’t what it used to be.

    Perhaps they should offer them as hangable tree decorations for one’s yard.

    I fail to see the downside.

    What kind of child is unable to remove a mask from their face when it’s attached with a velcro strap?

    Maybe some under one year, but most kids I know are coordinated enough to open or forcefully remove anything held in place with velcro..

    Hell, my dog doesn’t have hands, and he can get those velcro attached reindeer horns off in like 4 seconds.

      You could say the same about the “Johnny Space Commander” plastic bag & rubber band space helmet.

    I guess you could call that a “minor” design flaw.

    • Houston Lang says:

      YYYYYYYYYYYEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHH!

      • WinstonSmith2012 says:

        I think you maybe missed the joke because it wasn’t that good.  “Minor” design flaw as in a design flaw only relevant to minors, kids less than 18 years of age.  I think you’re take on it may have been the muzzling of screaming  kids which I’d be OK with… as long as they don’t suffocate.
