2002-10-03 02:45:31 PM  
So the Harry Potter butt plug is really what.....?

Brrrrrrrrroomstick. Did the headline writer intentionally rev up the broom?

"Mattell admits the Harry Potter brromstick is a vibrator"

umm... no, it doesn't. But the call is kinda funny tho.

"Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Dildo."
 
2002-10-03 04:46:15 PM  
Just not funny, that is all.
 
2002-10-03 04:47:35 PM  
Now wonder they had so many girls on the school's Quiddich team...
 
2002-10-03 04:48:19 PM  
The object shakes when a button is depressed... hence, it vibrates, hence it is a vibrator. What part of that was so hard for those Mattell morons to understand?
 
2002-10-03 04:48:28 PM  
C'mon people, let's get these headlines straight. The guy didn't admit anything. I weep for the future of Fark.
 
2002-10-03 04:48:53 PM  
No wonder there were so many girls on the school's Quiddich team....
 
2002-10-03 04:48:55 PM  
"it makes you feel like your flying, cuz you really are"
 
2002-10-03 04:49:31 PM  
Was the guy who wrote the headline riding the broom at the time?
 
2002-10-03 04:49:46 PM  
Wow, this is disturbingly funny.
 
2002-10-03 04:50:38 PM  
Hmmm, vibrators for kids...hey, why not start teaching them about sex toys at an early age? Hey, mom get two, one for Suzy, one as 'marriage aid'.

Some say it:

OBVIOUS!!!
 
2002-10-03 04:51:50 PM

Sally I'm going to have to take away your magic broom. Daddy found out some bad things about it, and he doesn't want you playing with it any more.

OK daddy I'll just be in the laundry room playing with the washing machine.
 
2002-10-03 04:54:54 PM  
that wasn't funny at all

sounded like any other moron complaining about stupid shiat
 
2002-10-03 04:56:25 PM  
I don't have audio here. Trrascript, anyone?
 
2002-10-03 04:56:27 PM  
Sally, this broom smells like that cigar I got from President Clinton
 
2002-10-03 04:56:27 PM  
Is Dan Savage aware of this? It could solve a certain mother's little problem.

Train 'em young!

BRILLIANT! Dan Savage should be masde immediately aware.
 
2002-10-03 04:58:39 PM  
i want a BRROOMSTICK
 
2002-10-03 05:01:12 PM  
right on, 3horn, dildos for all teenaged girls!
 
2002-10-03 05:01:30 PM  
Funny but it is not the onion

2002-10-03 05:01:40 PM  
only liberal pinko commie bastards try and shelter their kids from the joys of, ahem, these type of toys.

they'll find out anyway, might as well show em which ones work best
 
2002-10-03 05:01:50 PM  
You know that the customer service representative from Mattel is probably masturbating in his own special way now that he has the image of a 16 year old girl with a vibrating broomstick between her legs, right?
 
2002-10-03 05:03:41 PM  
I don't really see the point of that "prank" call.
 
2002-10-03 05:03:41 PM  
What the hell is going on?

Doesn't anyone notice how f*cking ANNOYING the English and Australians are?!

Their accents just make me angry.
 
2002-10-03 05:04:10 PM  
Awesome!
 
2002-10-03 05:06:02 PM  
I was at walmart with my kids and my sister. We ran across one of those brooms. My daughter's three and has an intrest in witches. Anyway, I spot that broom, and stradled it. I said "look mommies a witch." I was rather shocked by the vibrating. I refused to let my daughter "fly" on the broom. Maybe I just have a dirty mind, but the idea of my daughter on it just didn't seem right.
 
2002-10-03 05:06:02 PM  
I bet Abner Louima wishes this movie had come out before he was attacked by pigs with the old standard broomsticks.
 
2002-10-03 05:06:47 PM  
Yeah I kind of wonder what the hell they were thinking when they designed this toy.

Marketing: "OK so the special flying broom of the movie is the Nimbus 2000. Every kid out there is going to want one of these. R&D can we make it fly?"
R&D: "No"
Marketing: "OK, so we make it a flying broomstick that really flies around we will make millions."
R&D: "uhm... maybe you didn't hear me, we can't make it fly... plus if it did fly it would be too dangerous for kids."
Marketing: "What? Then what they hell do we pay you for... what can you make it do?"
R&D: "we can get it to make a buzzing sound."
Marketing: "a buzzing sound is good... but it has to do more... we want the kids to think they are flying."
Pedophile whacking off in the corner: "(tee-hee) we could make it vibrate also (tee-hee)."
Marketing: "Thats brilliant! Make it happen I want them out in stores before Christmas"

As much potential as this call had.. that W@nker managed to waste all of it.

sorry mate. Lost yer chance.


and for all you w@nkers taking the p!ss out of Aussie and Br!t accents.. FACK YEU.

Leeds - Don't make fun of poor Abner Luima. I hear that he has a drawstring for a sphincter now.
 
2002-10-03 05:09:34 PM  
Here's a link to it, cached at Google from Amazon.com

I found some of the customer comments extremely disturbing, especially the "My 8 year old son loves it"...he'll be telling this to a therapist someday.

http://216.239.53.100/search?q=cache:C9W1c9rJdNAC:www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/t g/stores/detail/-/imaginarium/B00005NEBW/ref%3Dpd_sbs_t_img_1/+Nimbus+2000&hl= en&ie=UTF-8

Great call nonetheless. Let's hope they don't isolate this guy's DNA and arbitrarily jail him for being a prank call criminal.

and for all you wnkers taking the p!ss out of Aussie and Br!t accents.. FACK YEU.


Impossible. Brits and Aussies are full of p1ss! Where would we keep it all if we tried to take it out?
 
2002-10-03 05:14:07 PM  
I bet that customer call center is in another country like Lybia or Beruit. All these big companies are paying other countries to do their phone support now.
 
2002-10-03 05:18:27 PM  
they always say sex sells.
 
2002-10-03 05:27:34 PM  
Listen to some of the other pranks. They are all pretty humorous.
 
2002-10-03 05:29:10 PM  
This customer comment was a little better..."When my 12 year old daughter asked for this for her birthday, I kind of wondered if she was too old for it, but she seems to LOVE it. Her friends love it too! They play for hours in her bedroom with this great toy. They really seem to like the special effects it offers (the sound effects and vibrating). My oldest daughter (17) really likes it too! I reccomend this for all children. "
 
2002-10-03 05:30:00 PM  
aye
 
2002-10-03 05:31:54 PM  
Wow, that Cockney git is pants. Thank God he only has a little-seen UK Web site and isn't actually on the TV. Watch THE OFFICE for real laughs. Next.

I'm sure they'd have customer service in the country of Beirut if it was an actual country, instead of the capital city of Lebanon. Libya isn't exactly friendly with us, either. I think they'd rather devote time to killing us than helping us put fresh batteries in our broom dildos.

MrVeach

We have it even worse at G.E.; they block ALL MP3s, and FLASH animation. Real funny when you can't even download or stream the company's own audio from the internal website. Duh.

/wait till I get home

My Roadrunner is faster than our shared T3 anyways.
