I think mom might have a point here. Somewhere in the straw factory, a dirty old man is having a good laugh.

damn, parents these days get worked up over every little thing
her daughter`s THREE, i honestly doubt she`s going to know a d-ck when she sees one
and seriously, that mom needs some serious imagination if she can see that in that straw
stop trying to get some attention for yourself and raise your daughter properly

Well, as long as the straw isn`t used for drinking milk, it`s totally non-sexual.

First glance I saw a woman`s figure, not a penis.
I think it`s funny though, the woman went out of her way to complain about it. Okay, so she`s probably prude.
Then I read the quote "Was shaped like a male private area." Yup, she doesn`t even say PENIS. Prude. Only in Kentucky.
But I agree with some others, she`s probably just going for attention and possibly money.

she said its not about the 1.69 but to protect other families with older children...

Y`know, when I was three, I wouldn`t of had clue one as to what those shapes were. Once you know something like that too, it can`t be unknown, so... by my logic, a kid who gets the joke already is aware of what a man`s private parts are and there is no need to "shield" them anymore... they are probably snickering at anything remotely sexual anyway by that stage.

I saw this a long time ago, and apparently the company that makes the kid straws also makes straws for bachelorette parties, as well as other adult themed straws. So it is probable that there could have been a mix-up at the factory or something.

They have these at Spencer`s, but they`re supposed to be like that.
Were they shaped like that on purpose or was it just a badly-planned design?

So, I`m guessing that bundling these straws with gallons of milk is out of the question?

Certainly a penis.

Sadly, the poll on the new article has twice the schmucks thinking it`s just a rocket.

Fools.

Andrea Bailey says her concern is not the $1.69 she paid for the straws, but what might happen to other families with kids a little older than Ashlynn.
OMG Nazis riding Dinosaurs!!!
Seriously.. what would be the huge problem?

Damn, jokes ain`t funny once you explain them...

re: my earlier post- if you type "Suck my D*ck" into IAB, the automatic censor replaces it with "I am a pretty little girl". Try it for yourself.

I guess the joke was a bit obscure.... I fail at teh funniez *hangs head in shame*"

If this woman wasn`t an ignorant sheep, her reaction would have been to laugh her ass off and then take all the penis ones and put them up somewhere so the kid couldn`t use them.

I don`t see the problem, I think a little subliminal training when their young is great, she just might make some guy a nice wife when shes older.

i like how she called wal mart to complain as if they had made the straws themselves.

"oh they were rude to me about it and said i was lying!"

well were you a bitch to begin with? I would put my bet on yes.

I would argue the opposite, some people are definitely NOT very wise. Did you mean "prudish", brother?

Sure they look like it, but complaining about it? Just take it out of the package and keep them for a joke or something... I would`ve LOVED to find something of the sort.

What`s even funnier is that she can`t say the word PENIS, and instead she calls the PENIS-shaped straws not PENIS but "male private area" because I guess she`s too afraid to say PENIS.

Jeeze, people are so prudent in unneeded areas.

They were probably trying to make it look like rocket ships and needed the straw to still be able to function as well and the PENIS shape is what ended up being produced.


....PENIS.

It`s NOT a rocket ship! That cannot be seen as anything other than what it is, penis and testicles. Some joker did this on purpose, seriously.
