Times Have Changed: Going to The Fair and Winning a Sex Toy!
I remember as a kid going to the fair over the Christmas holidays and playing the swiveling headed clowns with a view to winning a stuffed toy. It was always the plan at the Royal Easter Show as well during the Easter School holidays. However, times have changed, and perhaps not for the better, at least in New Zealand anyway.
A stall at the local fair in Nelson on New Zealand's south island run by Sturgeon Amusements are offering up blow-up sheep dolls as prizes. A blow-up sheep toy being given away as a prize in New Zealand seems apt given the jokes that surround New Zealander's and their enjoyment of sheep as company. So, it is either the ultimate in stupidity or just poor taste masked as a sense of humour that this stall is providing young children with a blow-up sheep sex toy as a prize.
They surely cannot be claiming that they did not know what it was, can they? After all, how many sheep do you see with bright blue eyes, long lashes and a French Maid's bonnet? It appears that the "toys" were to be destroyed but by some twist of fate the toys made their way to the fair. The owner of Sturgeon Amusements has offered anyone with a sheep sex toy a replacement toy if they bring the sheep back.
Seriously, what were they thinking that it was in any way appropriate to be giving blow-up sex toys to children.
