There needs to be an annual Fark award for the headline most successful at sucking people in. Er, so to speak.

I.... I.... don't know if I'm okay with visiting www.whatkidswant.net based on that.

So, if I buy the pool, does the mom come with it?

Just askin'.

That pool looks handy.

This is not a printing error. This is a design error.

I would tell you how clever you are, but I would just be stroking your ego.

Do all subbys not realize that May means that 2013 is not even close to being over yet? Are subbys really not taught this in school anymore?

She's cute but might have the herpes.

Cut, not dried.

The HOTY awards already have more items than a Chinese restaurant menu.

There were a lot of ways I was thinking of replying to this, but I'll just stop at the conclusion of my train of thought:

"Handjob Herpes" is the new name of my Carly Rae Jepsen tribute band.

I donno, if it's anything like that picture, than it's remarkably similar to what adults want.

Was that image done in Paint? Look at her legs.

You keep telling yourself that, sicko.

Only if the kid returns the favor.

Fuzzmosis: Was that image done in Paint? Look at her legs.


They 'shopped the mother in a way that her legs would normally have been behind the pool and girl on the left side (in the other product label photo on the website). I'd guess they probably just erased the hidden part of her legs to save on the .psd file size.

There's no way this was an "error", though. The two photos of the woman would have been in separate files, so somebody would have had to deliberately switch them - probably a graphic designer who knew the woman's hand was still in the photo.

Amazon has an uncropped picture:  http://www.amazon.com/Disney-Cars-Boys-Racing-Inflatable/dp/B00CJ1MPU Q

The box also says "Outdoor Fun!"

It isnt an error at all.  Not possible.  Somebody did this for some reason or another.  On purpose.
