Do they owe us a spinning? Of course they fucking do! Crass logo fidget spinner. The final death knell of capital P, capital R, Punk Rock?

As fidget spinners are the latest inexplicable toy fad, the popularity of which most adults find absolutely confounding, I posted a couple of weeks ago about low-rent knock-offs in the style of “Nightmare Feddy,” “Robert Cop,” and “Anna Montana.”


PornHub recently revealed that in a May data sampling, during just a ten day stretch in that month, there were 2.5 million “fidget spinner” searches on their popular porn site, making it the top trending term and 5th most popular search for that month (ON A FUCKING PORN SITE!).

I’m going to go out on a limb and assume this isn’t “licensed” merchandise, but nonetheless, you can buy it for $6.89 on Amazon. If that’s not anarchy, then WHAT IS?

Crass’ 1978 declaration that “Punk Is Dead,” may or may not have been a true fact, but here we have a prime indicator—something Crass themselves would have called “another cheap product for the consumer’s head.”

Fidget spinners are the latest inexplicable toy fad, the popularity of which most adults find absolutely confounding.

Parents who fail to remember their disappointment when their own parents bought them a “Rybick’s Cube” or a “Lettuce Patch Doll” or a “Beeny Baby” may make the mistake of picking up a “Widget Spinner” or a “Whirlerz.”

In the tradition of Nightmare Feddy, Robert Cop, and Anna Montana, here’s a collection of sorry knock-offs from the “Crappy Off Brands” Reddit page

Spot the difference and survive.
