butt of the joke... again


This lovely toy, a "Butthead," was recently spotted being sold at Spencer's Gifts. If you can't tell, it's a butt. Shaped and dressed up like a stereotypical buck-toothed Chinese coolie. And as if that wasn't enough, there's an audio component! When you press the "head," it apparently says stupid things in a terrible accent about passing gas. That's racist!


Look, there's even a brown butt wearing a turban... and, oh hell, is that a bindi? It's astounding how ridiculously offensive they are -- a million dollar idea, no doubt. Someone out there is actually manufacturing, selling and making money off these damn things. And that makes me sad for humanity.

I guess I shouldn't be surprised they're being sold at Spencer's -- that store's whole inventory is full of godawful garbage like this. (Thanks, Jason.)
