Those little guys are even cuter when they’re dropping f-bombs, aren’t they? Not all of the parents think so. Discovering it for myself, I snagged a minion during a trip to Mcdonalds on one of the last ten dinner times that I failed to make dinner for the family.
Confession: I’ve made dinner once in the last twelve days. After grocery shopping last night, we came swimming at Grandma’s tonight, and ordered chicken wings to be delivered. I’m working on it, promise.
Back to the minion, there are some parents out there who are a little less than enthused that you can hear (you know, if you’re really listening for it) a “what the #&$@” from the mouth of the adorable little yellow guy.
According to CTV, the toy isn’t going to be taken out of distribution – as it shouldn’t be. While my thirty year old ears immediately go there, I’m also the person giggling in the corner when someone’s talking about something that may be mildly construed as inappropriate, the kids eating these happy meals will continue to bang the toy to hear it babble, and that phrase likely won’t come to their mind.
Parents who are offended by the happy meal toy, get your mind out of the gutter. I feel the same way about this as I do earlier this year when the phallic shaped play doh toy had parents up in arms, demanding it be removed from the cake maker sets. Ridiculous.
Kids minds aren’t going there – and if you’re ordering the happy meal toy for yourself, there might be more of an issue than a perceived swearing little yellow guy.
