I came across an, "Ex Voodoo Knife Rack" somehow. High-larious! Now, if you have a sense of humor and understand that this technology doesn't actually work, it's funny. But, to this dumb-ass and self described non-fuddy duddy, it's not. This person actually took time to write this:
I am not being a fuddy-duddy or PC nut: believe me, I do get the humour - I just think that the funny side is outweighed by the more serious implications.
I think that the imagery created combined with the action of pulling the knives in and out is capable of affecting some people (especially some kids) in a negative way. I think that in this day-and-age of heightened knife crime even one serious incident incited by this product is one incident too many.
I have complained to the HQ of a well-known dept store and they have taken the items off their shelf. If you see these on the shelves and also find them offensive, please complain. You don't even have to follow your complaint up if you don't want to. Just keep a copy of your letter as proof that you did complain just in case a serious incident occurs. Manufacturers and suppliers need to be made accountable.
I'm so glad that this person is making the world a better place by calling manufacturers about this. He/She has given me the inspiration to save all the children by pulling some strings and ridding the world of this non-funny "OUCH" toothpick holder as well:
I made a voodoo doll for this person and I'm hoping it will work. He/She needs to die so we can clean up our gene pool a little.
That's what I'm doing to make the world a better place. YOU'RE WELCOME!
