    Thank you, Ted, for pointing out where I’ll find my future minions. Hadn’t thought of an all-female torture-force, but why not. A tyrant in waiting can’t be picky, can he? Minions are so hard to come by these days, and don’t get me started on the laser-sharks :-)

    Sounds like Ted saw some “Hunger Games” themed toys in the shops.

    The second panel could have been better worded. ALWAYS, indoctrination toys for girls have been pink. So the only change is that the American Way of Life has gone unisex.


    Before, the girls were supposed to staff the home front while the boys went to war. So the pink stuff was all for use in home-ec class projects, making sure the home was homely when and if the warrior returned.


    Now the pink stuff is for use in combat, as it should be. With modern technology, there is no reason to leave more than 50% of our young warriors at home.


    (Heinlein was right!)

    It does show an interesting dichotomy when I walk into my local Farm Supply stores and see Pellet Guns in Matte Black and Pink (sometimes even Pink and Black in a feminine parody of cammo).

    I always assumed that Pink was reserved for girly girls.

    @SABRSteve “Obama’s mother was a commie.”

    George W Bush’s grandfather was co-director of an American bank that helped bankroll the Nazi party and whose assets were frozen for the duration of the war under the Trading with the Enemy Act. What is your point?

    Pink is a bad color for weapons. Girls use to be favored with blue and boys pink until about 1890 then it was changed.
    -
    In two tv series you get to see children learn about weapons because in them human civilization has been damaged. “Revolution” and “Walking Dead.” Babies don’t fair well in the latter.

    You obviously don’t understand most Liberals with that statement.

    I bought one of those and, well, while the Pink Ak-47 came fully assembled plus 1000 rounds of ammo and had the optional 300 round drum and silencer attached my daughter was disappointed that the “baby doll dress” was not included. I had to search all over town to find one! Thanks Mattel!!
