Austin Powers Tiff

mark as unread

From USA Today, June 23 1999

Tamatha Brannon of suburban Atlanta said Tuesday that she has filed an obscenity complaint against Toys'R'Us because her 11-year-old son picked up an Austin Powers doll that asked, "Do I make you horny, baby, do I?" Exposure to the doll forced a vocabulary word on her son "that he otherwise would never have known to ask," Brannon says. McFarlane Toys, maker of the doll, says the shipping of a version of its Austin Powers toy intended for specialty stores, not mass-market retailers such as Toys'R'Us, was "an isolated event of human error." The version that Toys R Us carries instead asks, "Would you fancy a shag?" Shag is British slang for sexual relations.

This really isn't that unusual of a story, except the part where they say what the Toys'R'Us model says. Is there really that much of a difference?!


How funny is this joke, video, picture?
