Plastic German Pigs Say The Darndest Things

A couple in Kirkland, WA, claims that a Shrek promotional toy from McDonald's has taught their two-year-old son Tyler to say a very bad word. (The word, which the reporter in this story can only say "appears to be a slang term for the female anatomy, followed by the word 'pork,'" is "pussy.") Is it actually what one of these Teutonic swines is uttering? Judge for yourself here. Depending on your perspective, this is either further evidence that McDonald's should stop luring children with toys or yet another example of how Americans who want to get on TV simply need to go to the local news with a ridiculous story involving children and outrage. Or, perhaps, both.

Now THAT's a Happy Meal.

I have no idea what that stupid toy is saying.

But we did get my three-year-old nephew a Happy Meal on last week's road trip, and instead of dumb pigs, he got this awesome Shrek "number band [watch]"!

No big deal. They just sound like they're makin' bacon.

Don't go to McDonald's and don't feed that so-called food to your newborn. Problem solved.

Maybe they're objecting to the pig's sentence structure. Wouldn't the "pork" make more sense as a verb *before* the offending word instead of after?

I doubt they will care if their kid is swearing while bumming on the streets looking for a quick salty fix.

Double sleazeburger, fraulein!

These people are in for another shock when Tickle Me Elmo reaches puberty.

As if three pantsless dudes in leather vests would be talking about pussy anyway.

I hear your chances of hearing this toy say "pussy" is directly connected to your own personal guilt as a parent.

No nice way of using the word? Tom Jones begs to differ.

When I was fifteen my grandmother gave me a talking Pokemon watch for some reason. It was supposed to say "It's twelve o'clock" but would say "Bitch, twelve o'clock".

God rest Nanny's soul.

What if it was saying "Puddy Pork"?… Like a Pork Pudding? That makes sense, Germanically speaking.

deepomega (#1,720)

No matter how you phrase it, it's clear those pigs wanted to be porked in their pink posteriors.

Thank the United States of Jesus for honest, hard working journalists that work so hard to expose the dirty, evil world we live in.

"Darndest" isn't a word.
