Kinder Eggs Are Not Controversial


It drives wingnuts crazy that we now have a President who actually kills terrorists and defends America, especially since he's a Democrat and a black man to boot.

I'm not sure what the thrust of this is--satire or mere stupidity. President Obama authorized the killing of Osama bin Laden. Case closed. Kinder Eggs killed at least four children in the 1990s because they inadvertently swallowed the toys embedded inside of them. Kinder Eggs are illegal in the United States because you are not allowed to put toys or items that cannot be eaten inside of things that can be eaten for obvious reasons.

Adults are sophisticated enough to deal with Kinder Eggs; children are not. It's that simple. The controversy over their ban in the United States was fanned a few years ago when a conservative reacted with indignation when they were confiscated from him when he entered the United States. Here, we have laws. Elsewhere, they bury dead children. Where would you rather live?

So, in and of itself, the comic is fine; I don't have a problem with that. But the details render it somewhat soft and fuzzy as far as being satirical or having a point.
