Winnie the Pool?
 
2008-05-20 01:08:11 PM  
Guess what folks. It's a shelf that holds stuff. Whether the Playboy stationary is on the same rack or the one next to the kid's stationary, it really doesn't matter.
 
2008-05-20 01:08:11 PM  
Meh, I didn't figure out the significance of the bunny logo until I was 16. I doubt they will either.
 
2008-05-20 01:08:13 PM  
Damn, I wanted to make fun of subby first

I don't have a problem with it so nobody else should either.

Subby the Tool.

Pool's closed. Oh, bother.
 
2008-05-20 01:09:29 PM  
Aren't all shops stationary?

Billygoat Gruff: Winnie the Pool?

Yeah, it should either be Winnie the Pooh and Micky Mouse or Winnie the Pool and Micky Moose (the later if they're trying to duck those damn licensing costs).

Or were made in Taiwan or Korea

Subby needs to think, think, think again.
 
2008-05-20 01:11:48 PM  
He's a freaking pool for god's sake.

I thought I'd get more NSFW pics than I did on a GIS for "playboy stationary rack"

Pic of dead Winnie floating in the water and Tigger poking him with a stick in 3... 2...

Winnie the Pool?

The only problem is that it's spelled M-I-C-K-E-Y.
 
2008-05-20 01:14:08 PM  
Winnie the Pooh = no pants
Micky Mouse = no shirt
Playboy = no pants, no shirt

I see no problem with this shelf arrangment. Keep like items together for easy reference.
 
2008-05-20 01:14:14 PM  
Did someone say Playboy?
 
2008-05-20 01:15:06 PM  
Yeah, it should either be Winnie the Pooh and Micky Mouse or Winnie the Pool and Micky Moose (the later if they're trying to duck those damn licensing costs).


Or how about m-i-c-k-E-y for Mickey Mouse and not Micky.

/ThinksTommyDuece is the subby and grew up with Winnie the Pool and Micky Moose

FTFA:Catherine Hanly, editor of the parents website raisingkids.co.uk said many mothers had condemned the sale of Playboy products in WH Smith stores on a recent discussion forum.

She said: "They are perceived as targeting children. Parents don't like it. It's the idea of young children and young girls going around with something with a Playboy logo on, it's seen as deeply inappropriate.

"It's the slow drip, drip effect of having sexualised merchandise aimed at children."



Then BE A PARENT. If you don't want your snowflakes to have something, then don't allow them to buy it. That's your right. Leave the rest of us alone.

/I hate the farking Daily Mail.

If anyone has a problem with this, stationary is the least of their problems.

A hangnail is more important. Literally.
 
2008-05-20 01:18:32 PM  
what an ass, it's a freaking bunny, grow up

lol....
 
2008-05-20 01:19:38 PM  
I find it far more destructive that children gravitate toward talking animals. This is an abomination unto the LORD.
 
2008-05-20 01:20:26 PM  
Yes, god forbid any children should know about porn. Not like they can find out for themselves, they always have to be told about such things. And stationery! With a logo on it! I almost fainted, I was so outraged.

Jesus, people, come on. The word 'busybody' is losing its meaning because it applies to so many morality Nazis nowadays.

Yes...because the last thing children should be exposed to are.... BREATS!!!

Playboy has no control over where the shopkeepers place their merchandise. Their products are not aimed at children. They were never intended to be sold with the kids' products. What a bunch of douche-nozzles.

My local drugstore has a toy section and a section with condoms. Not that many aisles apart either. Does that mean Trojan is marketing to kids?

*snicker* A clothing store in my hometown ran into a similar issue to this, once. They were selling underwear with the Playboy logo alongside Disney-themed underwear. When called on it, it turns out the stock ladies were fairly recent immigrants, who had figured all the cartoon animal heads ought to be put together.

When someone explained the difference, the oldest lady pointed out that since these were bras and panties, it could be assumed that the people buying them probably knew what a naked woman looked like anyway.

PlNG: Meh, I didn't figure out the significance of the bunny logo until I was 16. I doubt they will either.

Yeah, I was pretty far along in adolescence and knew a whole lot of other things I shouldn't have known before I equated the cute little bunny head with Playboy. I think the boys figured it out a little earlier than the girls did. So it's probably safer that the items be PINK, and directed towards females. We're a little slower in grasping the connection.

Pink is one of their trademark colors, right? I can see their merchandise being 3 colors.. Black, white, and pink. Or a combination thereof.

.. but hey, maybe THAT'S what made me turn out the way I did...

/Was never a big fan of pink, and hate that so much stuff for femmes is pink. Why can't we get some nice red or black? Or even just intense colors.. why does everything have to be infant child pink?
//Unless it's that trashy bright pink, that screams you might be a ho.... that's ammusing... when worn with a suit or something else sophisticated.

Hi all

This won't apply to most of you. Lately we've been having issues with folks going out of control putting playboy stationary on shelves next to products for kids. At some point these reach a critical mass and become not safe for the world. 1-2 playboy products probably is ok, 100 is not. Somewhere along the way the line gets crossed, we don't know what the quantitative number is.

In an effort to permanently remove instigators from our community, the moralists have been instructed to be particularly harsh on anyone perceived to be selling playboy stationary to cause trouble.

This is undoubtably going to catch some folks who innocently wandered in and wanted some fun. Sorry we have to do this, some folks got carried away, and this is why we can't have nice things.

I would recommend that folks who normally participate in this kind of thing should dial it back a bit for the time being

Sorry for the trouble. To the 99.99% of you that this doesn't apply to, carry on

she has a valid point

That rack has a nice rack.

All due respect most centerfolds are closer to a characiture than a woman.

What about "Jigglet"?
 
2008-05-20 01:52:17 PM  
Pornography is immoral, demeaning to women, and encourages sexual predators. I think it should be illegal, but at the very least people should keep it away from children.
 
2008-05-20 01:53:58 PM  
+1 for spelling "stationery" correctly. Most people don't.

Aaannnd -1 for the "Pooh" typo.

Sorry. Easy come, easy go.

Didn't read the story, don't need to. I'm sure it's the same "I'm outraged!" bullshiat we've heard a million times before. I wish I had nothing better to do with my time than biatch about how a store displays their sale items.
 
2008-05-20 01:55:25 PM  
Question: Why was Tigger in the toilet?

Answer: He was looking for Pooh.

/That is all.
