Blow Giant Balloons My Ass!...


This shit never worked.
You remember, you squeezed the sticky goo on the
end of a straw and you were supposed to be able to blow up
the most majestic balloons anyone had ever seen.

That would've been true if by majestic you meant crappy.

At least you got a little contact high from the goo.

If you were not exposed to this wonderful toy, buy some HERE.




I should've been a salesman...

Oh my gosh, I thought I was the only one who got fooled enough to buy this crap. I wanted this stuff sooooo bad when I was a kid. I finally nagged my sister (who was good at saving money; I spent all mine on candy the second I got it) into buying it, and it SUCKED. But it did smell kinda funny, I remember that. We ended up wadding up the little rubbery popped balloons and just throwing them at each other.

It looks like another crappy toy that really blows.

Funny, I was just talking with Thing 3 the other day (he's 9) and he was telling me his observations about how things look so good on the package or on the ads on TV, then they disappoint. I've learned you can not explain that to kids, they have to learn it all by themselves. Besides, when you try to explain how disappointing it will be you sound like a cheap ass cynical jerk that is trying to get out of buying the world's best thing.

yeah, to make a bubble anywhere near the size on the packaging you had to use the WHOLE GODDAMNED TUBE. Which of course didn't work, because as you blew gravity pulled it off to one side and made a huge thin spot that burst. The shit only WORKED one time-- I think it hardened up automatically once it hit the air.

Come to think of it, those goddamned X-ray glasses I ordered never worked worth a shit, neither...

v. true. if you want to blow bubbles you have to use supermarket own brand washing up liquid; it smells soo good :)
