Absolutely and thank you.


It also gets them more interested in science. The Ebola was available before this outbreak and nobody was offended. Now (as with all of the overly PC crowd) it's offensive and totally unacceptable. I don't know why all of a sudden you "can't talk about it". That certainly doesn't make it go away.
------------------------------------------------

ETA (not you intrptr) - The toy was indeed available before the outbreak...


Giantmicrobes Sales Manager Nicole Centonze told Adweek the toy has been around for sometime but sales recently have spiked.


Now can we stop with the "trying to make a profit on this catastrophe" lamentations?

We already knew they were juvenile delinquents...arrested development and all that...



But now we know they're just beyond repair.




It's an educational "plush" for crying out loud. They need to make one called "faux offendedness disease". They could incorporate the see no evil, hear no evil, and do no evil bit into it...



Well I like that. This fluffy plush toy had better have mucho pairs of arms to cover eyes, ears and penises.

Dark, morbid, tasteless, uncouth, low-brow, uncivilized.

(Sounds just like my honeymoon)

Not including all the diseases right? (MOD sniper shot in 3...2...1...)



I kid! I kid!

I love the smell of ebola in the morning.
That flesh eating bacteria can eat it's ass on up the road.
I am bullet-proof and invincible thanks to the power of beer.
No foreign invaders want any part of my system.

I #en love you O

well then perhaps i should go into business selling rabies dogs,or even leprosy dolls...hell why not black death babies with active puss boils that squirt when squeezed !!


Ah yes, because the molecular structure of a virus that looks like spaghetti is equal to "active puss boils" that squirt out of a dead baby doll.

Of course.

Unless....

You were being facetious.

I just leaped on this one without the facts because there are actually dozens of companies cashing in on this blatantly. I've seen several that are 100% trying to profit from Ebola. It's a shame I lumped in a decent company in with the rest through my ignorance. Lesson learned

I find the plush toys to have milder overall effect than, say, a Freddie Kruger doll.

Ooooo there's MORE!!!

www.giantmicrobes.com...

A few years ago there was a company that made lovely little decorative hand soaps that were petri-dish sized of E-Coli and Salmonella. The perfect gift for the germaphobe!

IIRC they also sold dinner plates with different microbes, ties....

Marketing gifts to the medical community has been around for years, it's not new.

Wow, that's crazy...

And pretty soon people will probably print T-shirts that say " I survived Ebola Dallas!" or " I didn't catch Ebola but I did get this lousy
T-shirt"

POPPLES!


Also, is it crass to point out that the Ebola Toy actually looks more like a poop with a face?

I can't help but laugh at some of the responses. Your imagination is what gives it life. Otherwise, it's just a stuffed fabric tube sock with eyes.
