Subject: Do you hate kids?
Hi there! Nice website of yours. I stumpled
across it in search for a (dirty) laugh and wasn't disappointed
at all. Since you seem to be looking for stuff for you site I found
something nice. It's not too weird and not too funny at all, but
if you've always felt that kids are completely stupid (or TV makes
them stupid), here's the proof you need. It's from a German newspaper,
so I had to translate it. Enjoy.
Kids love those "Surprise Eggs" from
Ferroro. They ought to be some kind of healthy too - chocolade and
milk and always something small to play with. But now one of these
"Surprise Eggs" turned out to be a "Bad Surprise
Egg", in one way or another.
Monday evening in Markland Road: Michaela Woith
is taking care of her 8yr old daughter Jacqueline. Meanwhile her
son Pasquale (3 yr) is watching TV all by him self.
The "Surprise Egg" spot is being shown
and you're being told about the 'interactive fun' as well - a boy
sitting in front of his PC dives into the monitor screen and comes
back unharmed. Pacquale not just likes the idea of that, he also
feels like chocolade right now. He stands up, steps back and starts
Down and bleeding
His mum hears a strange rumble and immediatly
heads for the living room. There she finds the TV on the floor,
with her son bleeding right next to it.
"Cerebral concussion", was the diagnosis
at the hospital, where Pasquale had to stay until tuesday evening.
Meanwhile he is back home again and only his bloodshot eyes and
bruises in his face remember of his 'dive like Batman' into the
TV screen. While he already recovered from the shock his mum is
totally mad: "The spot is absolutely unfit for 3yr old children.
Ferrero's advertising department should have known how small kids
react to TV spots and take them for real - and want to be part of
that reality. That's irresponsible."
Get off lightly
Still, Pasquales mum is relieved that her sons
'encounter with the alien Surprise Egg adventurers' didn't do too
much harm to her boy. And Pasquale himself also learned his lesson.
Being asked, whether he would dive into a TV screen again: "No,
I can't. There's glass in front of it. And it also hurts!"
