So Lucas got some birthday money and wanted to buy some prank items from Amazon. Specifically, fake items that shock you. The product picture showed a couple of toy guns, pack of gum, laser pointer, etc. He pretty much got what he asked for. The flashlight and laser pointer actually work if you know the hidden button to push that won't shock you.
But there was one exception - no gum! Instead, they substituted a cigarette lighter...at least, that's what I think it is.
I had to include both pictures, because this thing starts flashing when you open it, and I thought it was funny that I caught each boob lit up! I can tell there's no lighter fluid in it, so I haven't tried it to see if it shocks you when you "light your cigarette."
This is just wrong on so many counts. Lucas came running to me when he opened the package and was especially titillated with this particular item. I didn't know what to feel - should I be incensed? Angry? Write the company a hateful letter?
Then I remembered the pranks my dad used to play with his friends in the 70's, and I remembered when a girl brought a prank pen to school in the 4th grade (yes, the famous Rhonda P. for my siblings). Her pen showed a buxom woman in a bikini, but when you wrote with it the ink drained down and left her naked - gasp!
So I decided to play it cool like my dad would have, and let Lucas keep it. (I WILL be checking his backpack daily when school starts up again, don't you worry!)
