Re: The Top Ten Most Warped Toys list

Okay, I laughed. I usually do. But there's one thing I just feel the need to point out:

9.- Oh Deer - The Super Dooper Reindeer Pooper by Midlon Foods Inc. Ages three and up.

Jelly bean toy inappropriate for sale in children's toy store. . . . Insensitive and offensive to Christians celebrating Christmas. Offensive to secular holiday season.

...secular meaning, if I'm not mistaken, a not necessarily religious, but popularly celebrated holiday. Hold on, I'll look it up...

1. Worldly rather than spiritual.
2. Not specifically relating to religion or to a religious body: secular music.
3. Not bound by monastic restrictions, especially not belonging to a religious order. Used of the clergy.

So saying "offensive to Christians" is off-base, especially since the reindeer have nothing to do with the Christian tradition of Christmas. Secular means just that.

Also, pooping is now "insensitive and offensive"?

I worry about the world. Really I do. o.O
