Easy Bake Butchery

According to this article, Easy Bake ovens are being recalled because hundreds of children are harmed by them. They are getting their fingers caught and getting seriously burned. One even required a partial amputation.

OK, I have to say this. Who are these moron children and how come they don't possess enough common sense to avoid getting hurt by a stupid toy? Is it really that difficult to understand that sticking your fingers into hot metal things might be inherently dangerous? Next thing they'll be doing is shooting plastic torpedoes down their throats and wondering why they suddenly can't breathe.

The Easy Bake Oven was my favorite toy. And I never got burned.

The last time I visited the states my cousin told me that they outlawed those strings on a coat that tighten the hood, the ones that dangle down, because some kid was going down a slide, got one caught and almost choked. I don't know if that is true or not...

Uhhh...I got my hand stuck in my friend's EBO when I was a kid. It wasn't on, so I didn't get burned, but there was a toy plate stuck at the back and I was reaching to get it out. Next thing I know her dad's getting a screwdriver so he can set my index finger free.

They're kids. Be nice. :)

S'OK. I didn't really take that personally. :)
