TSA Airport-Grope Playset Teaches Little Ones About Freedom

'Tenderly place your plastic hand in my rectum, Sir.'
There are those who say that leaving ironic product reviews on Amazon is proof that we have ultimately failed in our haphazard pursuit of a higher purpose, but those people would be wrong. What was Jonathan Swift's famous op-ed about eating dead Irish babies if not a proto-Amazon review done in irony? Is the Book of Revelation anything more than a parody of Roman imperial politics and luxury obsession? Anyway, here's a Playmobil playset that Amazon doesn't even sell, and the Freedom Writers are leaving some very biting fake reviews that are probably really more about their unhappiness with the U.S. Transportation Security Administration.

Playmobil rules! My ex-gf used to be a collector and I would spend a great deal of time on eBay looking for the weirdest toys from around the world, including:
Playmobil Knight of Malta(?),
Playmobil Satan,
Playmobil Heavy Metal Guitarist,
Playmobil Executioner w/axe & hood, and
Playmobil Kid with Bike and snap-on leg cast for when the child breaks his leg.

This is not making me regret my decision to take the train from DC to Boston next month.

You know what's great? How everyone – liberal and conservative! – hates the TSA. And yet here we are, gettin' groped.

@deepomega They're not renewing their contract with the company that makes those dumb things, so they should be going away some time in the near future.

"Is the Book of Revelation anything more than a parody of Roman imperial politics and luxury obsession?" Okay, that deserves its own thing, Ken.

@melis Cuz it's also obviously a great title for a movie about the behind-the-scenes skullduggery among the staff of a high school yearbook.
