Viagra Bear Upsets Parents



Parents were suprised when their 11-year old son, playing a plush toy type claw game, won a Teddy Bear wearing a small, blue Viagra Shirt like the one above. KSTP:

    The Red Robin restaurant chain is taking action after a Twin Cities family won a bear with an ad for Viagra at one of its restaurants.

    Joe Kelner, 11, won a bear while playing the claw machine at the Red Robin in Shoreview.

    Joe's parents thought it was inappropriate and complained to restaurant employees.

    "It's important for parents to know that there are maybe inappropriate toys in these vending machines that you think are safe," Lori Kelner said.

    Red Robin says the bears were supplied by a local vendor from New York as part of a Nascar package promoting its sponsors.

    The company said they are removing the bears from all its restaurants.

See, chalk this up as another in a long list of things to blame on that damned rowdy NASCAR crowd and Red Robin for teaming up with the plush toy provider. It reeks of Rovian conspiracies.

If the toys are used for advertising Viagra, maybe we'll start seeing seniors getting stuck in the machines instead of the idiot children that repeatedly get wedged inside.
 
Yeah, you do own the market on your blog for stories of kids getting trapped inside the damn machines.
