downstairs: Was this writer never a kid? Yeah... kids like toy stores. Doubly much if they get free toys!
voltOhm: Someone call the WAAAAAAAAAmbulance! It was a commercial about kids being kids.... quit being babies about everything.
DanZero: But if this was on 20 years ago, it would be a-OK!/thisisanoutrage.jpeg
violentsalvation: Oh my god, who the f*ck cares? Kids love toys.
BMFPitt: Lighten the fark up, Francis.
Creoena: I blame Obama. Or is it Bush? Who is it cool to blame for everything this week?
thamike: violentsalvation: Oh my god, who the f*ck cares? Kids love toys."It's true."
UNC_Samurai: Goddamn, out school system put the hammer down on field trips when I was coming along. I think we took a field trip to Washington DC, and one to the local water treatment plant, and that was it. Those little turds better be happy their school system let them walk more than a hundred feet away from a chalk/white board for ten minutes.
MBK: Jesus christ, if you watched a commercial and sat speechless after a commercial about kids being kids, get the stick out of your ass and stop being boring.
thamike: violentsalvation: Oh my god, who the f*ck cares? Kids love toys.[www.lovelyiphonewallpapers.com image 320x480]"It's true."
Treize26: I clicked on this fully expecting to be outraged. After watching it... I can't really say I have a problem here. I fully recognize the value of a good education, and in teaching children to respect the environment and such, but... they're kids. We'd have all reacted the same way at that age.I especially love this line FTFA:My wife and I were relaxing, watching TV (was it the World Series? I can't remember) when we saw this advertisement from Toys "R" Us. We were struck speechless with shock and anger.In other words, they were sitting there being non-productive consumers of entertainment media, and they were *OUTRAGED* to be shown another aspect of the same damned thing they were engaging in. Did they turn off the TV in protest against the sponsors of the "World Series or whatever", or did they keep munching on their popcorn while vowing to write a strongly worded blog post at the next commercial break? I suspect we know the answer to this.
skozlaw: Last I knew they're an even bigger rarity now that standardized testing is the be-all-end-all of school funding and "achievement". You don't learn how to fill in the right bubble on the sheet by actually looking at and interacting with the world around you, and our oh-so-wonderful legislators have decided that's all that really matters.
MugzyBrown: Oh yeah, that's the problem with education. You've solved it.
