Swine flu virus soft toy for sale on internet


www.telegraph.co.uk

The stuffed toy has been designed to represent a "cuddlier" version of an H1N1 microbe, complete with a pig-like nose and eyes.

The 7inch novelty is the latest creation of US-based doll company GIANTmicrobes, which specialises in producing huggable viruses and pests.

The firm's catalogue include soft toy interpretations of a range of sexually-transmitted infections including gonorrhea, syphilis and chlamydia.

Does anyone else find this grotesque? They are making plush toys of deadly viruses and STDs!

The STD versions I find disturbing because if they are soft, plush toys they may fall into the hands of children, who will want to know what they mean, represent, etc. SICKENING!

This is bad taste at its worst. Wonder if the swine flu doll comes impregnated with the real thing?

I see the humor in it, and fully believe that you should never give in to fear. Best way to not fear something? ridicule it

Best way to ridicule something?

Turn it into a plush toy



No I see no problem with this kind of thing. It's geared for a specialty market of people who like the weird and bizarre. I fall into that category, i guess lol

I've seen those before and thought them positively adorable (albeit a touch on the pricey side).

No harm done, really. Just offers a bit of amusement for people who can see entertainment in such things.
