Zhu Zhu Pet Rampage!

– – You’ve almost certainly heard of Zhu Zhu pets unless you live in a cave…I live in a hole in the ground, and I’ve heard of them! The hot kid gift of this season, these basically robotic hamsters do much of what a real hamster does, except eat, poop, and die.

A consumer group’s report that Zhu Zhu pets were unsafe due to dangerous levels of tin and antimony was met with a rebuke from the manufacturer Monday.  The consumer protection group GoodGuide has admitted that its testing methodology does not measure these metals in the same way that American and European guidelines dictate.  GoodGuide says that it found 103 parts per million of antimony on the nose of Mr. Squiggles, one of the most popular hamsters…I, for one, do not intend to put Mr. Squiggles in my mouth, as a child might do….you may do as you wish, ’cause we don’t judge people around here for that kind of thing, and diversity made this country great, right?–Well, at least passably mediocre…

Imagine going to your doorstep in the middle of the night, and finding several hundred of these things lying in wait for you?–Kinda The Night of the Living Dead Hamsters?!    😉

    Actually, I was raised by Amish wolves. Because, the only ZhuZhu I’ve ever heard of is the one who gave her father, George Bailey, some flower _petals_ one paritcular Xmas.

    Well, they’re certainly better educated enough to spell “particular,” correctly.
