"Summer toys, and one line I won't cross."


Over at his eponymous site, Bob Mitchell in the 21st Century often has Superhero T-Shirt Tuesdays, and that seemed like as good a reason as any to play with some toys with the Youngest. He got the Burger King Dumpster Throwing Abomination toy the other day, and enjoyed that a lot. Maybe not as much as that spinny Indiana Jones toy, but a lot.

I do try not to think about how much Happy Meal hamburger meat is packed into my colon, though.

I haven't been breaking my legs on any of the toys this year: Oh, I enjoy getting them, but I'm not going hardcore completist on them. So I've missed a few of each wave of toys, but the boys and I are getting a pretty good pile. I think the Indiana Jones toys helped me out quite a bit, since I didn't really want to pick up any of the regular toys: I don't buy a lot of 3 and 3/4 inch figures anymore. So, the Burger King toys made me feel like Indy was getting some toy representation.

Big thanks to the Wife for taking the pictures for this one, and for knowing I'd listen to a CD with the theme to (the old TV show) The Prisoner, and Peaches "F*** the Pain Away." Love you, hon! (Not the edited version, of course, but I'm still trying not to swear around here. It's a self-imposed rule, because if I start, there'll be buckets of profanity before long.)

Pffft. Matt over at X-E would have eaten it.

...and then gotten the runs. But he would've eaten it!

I read something the other day that said that Americans eat an average of 260 lbs of meat a year. No idea where that figure comes from, but maybe that gives you an idea.

I have to say that Goom, Son of Googam is just adorable. And that eating junk food while hooting at Gordon Ramsey is...well, it's a hoot.

But I'd pass on five-year old cotton candy too.

HE'S HORRIB- I mean another well done comic, Googum!

Idea for next time - sound effects from the toys as Goom plays with them.
