Would you believe this was actually sold as a child’s toy in Tesco, one of the leading stores in England? And it’s not the only horrendously offensive kid’s product you won’t believe.
There’s this silly stereotype that girls at Comic Con are fat, pimply, wear glasses and are otherwise just icky. That image is not only sexist and stupid, but grossly inaccurate. In fact, there are some amazingly HOT girls there. I didn’t even picture a third of the good looking girls I saw there and I still got some pictures of great looking girls that definitely defy the stupid preconceived notion of the ugly geek girl being the only female at Comic Con.
Of course, that’s not to say there weren’t total l00zers at the Con, don’t you worry, those pics are coming soon, as are some great interviews and some pics of the merch, etc. But for now, satisfy your sweet tooth with these little bits of sugar. (Again, click for larger images.)
MSN has a great review of one of the stupidest inventions ever, the Hula Chair. It is designed to help you get in shape at work by twirling your way to a better body.
