The Latest from Christmas Inc.

At the drug store the other day I saw "Grandma's Revenge," a toy truck with a grandma figure driving, plus a reindeer figure tied onto the hood ($19.95). Push a button and it plays a tinny version of "Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer." Not that that song needs full orchestration.

I don't know if this item demonstrates the genius of modern marketing or not. But someone may be making a fortune off this item, which only shows once again that Plutus is blind, and I have to wonder what the Chinese factor workers who made them thought of these curious objects.
