Can’t wait to see how Glenn Beck ties this one to the Obama administration (or Van Jones)—pundits at Fox News, start your indignation!

Batteries and dollar bills not included.  A grainy Internet photo of an alleged new toy for girls has parents in a tizzy—“Pole Dance,” a doll that, well, dances around a pole.  Like a stripper.  In the photo, which first appeared on gadget blog Gizmodo.com, the box for the toy depicts a cherubic, brunette doll in a shiny green dress, clutching a pole with a disco ball on top while standing on a small stage that says “Pole Dancer.”  The simple graphics on the box include the words “Style,” “Flash,” “Up and Down,” “Go Round and Round,” and “Music.” 

Whether or not it’s a hoax or a sign of the apocalypse, posters on parenting Web site parentdish.com were aghast over the suggestive doll sending a horrible message to young girls.  A writer for Gizmodo.com told parentdish.com that the new doll is likely authentic—and probably came from Asia.  “As far as I can tell, it’s a real product,” said Gizmodo.com’s Jesus Diaz.  “It didn’t seem Photoshopped to me.  It feels more like the typical Chinese-made product you can only find in low cost stores.”

Out For Justice With “Deputy” Steven Seagal

News from today’s Guardian about everyone’s favorite Buddhist ass-kicker.  In a life-imitating-art-imitating-life twist of M?ɬ?bius dimensions, brace yourself for Steven Seagal: Lawman.  Apparently, the ponytailed one’s been flying under the radar in Jefferson Parish, Louisiana, these past 20 years as a genuine deputy sheriff.  And now, with Lawman, we can all ride shotgun as he responds to “crimes-in-progress.”

As Seagal himself asserts in the accompanying clip, “This is not a joke.  This is real police officers down here, in life-and-death situations.”  I’ll wait and see, though, if he’ll be resolving those situations with just his “gaze and his gestures.”

 
In the Guardian UK: Steven Seagal: Lawman.  Does it get any better?

Here’s an interesting tower located in Beijing fashioned from 28,000 decaying human teeth. Has the identity of The Tooth Fairy been revealed?

Ricky Gervais’ Seona Dancing

Ricky Gervais has brought and continues to bring major joy to all of us here at Dangerous Minds.  I’m happy to report the same goes for his past as well.  Seona Dancing, his mostly ignored ‘80s new wave group, might have found more success in the Philippines than in England, but perhaps that was a lucky career stroke.  Failure, humiliation, the crushing of expectations—welcome to the world, David Brent!

Get A Room You Chew: Candy Wrapper Porn

A DAD last night blasted a sweet firm over fruity characters on wrappers who look like they are having sex. Haribo’s MAOAM sour candy uses illustrations of lemons, limes and cherries.

But Simon Simpkins was shocked at the “porno” poses when he bought the sweets for his kids Benjamin and Ofelia.

Mr Simpkins of Pontefract, West Yorks, said: “The lemon and lime are locked in what appears to be a carnal encounter. The lime, who I assume to be the gentleman in this coupling, has a particularly lurid expression on his face.

‘I demanded to see the shop manager and, during a heated exchange, my wife became quite distressed and had to sit down in the car park.’

Haribo said the “fun” packaging was introduced in Germany in 2002. They added: ‘The jovial MAOAM man is very popular with fans, both young and old.’

Dad’s outrage at sweet wrapper “porn”
