Choking Hazard (Hands Behind the Glass Theme)

Post by DoctorBanzai » Thu May 09, 2013 1:40 am

Choking hazard? Really? What kind of an idiot would put this in their mouth in the first place.

You know what it is, right?

Somewhere, some time, some jerk thought: “hey, what happens if I swallow Superman’s head?”

So, he did, and, of course, the head got jammed in his windpipe and, the idiot that he was, he nearly choked to death on it so some judge decided that now all action figures need to come with that stupid warning.

How did I end up here in the bed next to you on the choking ward?

Well…it’s kind of embarrassing…

:shock: I'm gonna go rinse my eyes out with bleach now...

Great Drabble. Now I know who to blame for the USA's ban on importing Kinder Eggs, alas!

Thank you. In order to set a good example for ASID, I hereby exile myself from the forums for a week. :cry:

I always thought the Drabblecast forums were a place you were exiled to, not exiled from. Kind of like 4chan, but with better taste. I mean, really, could we honestly sleep at night knowing you're out there, loose on another unsuspecting forum somewhere? Gotta keep the inmates in the asylum and all that. :D

You can't get Kinder Eggs?
WTF??
They're everywhere here in Canada.
Want some?

Sad but true. I used to be able to bring them back in my suitcase when visiting family in Germany, but they've started cracking down on that too, if you can believe it! I'm not really sure what the logic is. Apparently American children must be a little dumber on the object-swallowing front than the rest of the Western world.

Yes, send me all your Kinder Eggs! ...I like to use the toys as D&D miniatures...

PM me your address and I'll send one to be sure the post will take it across the border. If it works, more can follow.

Bah, I can't ask you to do that - that's a lot of trouble to go through to restock my D&D miniatures! ...Now if you're coming to Dragon*Con this year, let's totally arrange this and I'll buy you a drink.

If I get the urge for illegal Canadian contraband, I promise to involve you in the grassroots development of my chocolate-smuggling crime syndicate! :twisted:
