Spare The Rod, That Toy's A Video Camera

For old fashioned parents, who happen to be young enough to have kids, but they're old enough to believe the line about "Spare the rod, spoil the child," this blog has a cautionary note for you.

I was at the store the other day and saw a Barbie doll with a video camera built into the chest. Everyone needs cleavage like this! Boob, camera, boob.

So, let's say you're getting ready to discipline Junior (for his or her own good, of course). The little monster whips out a toy, videotapes you, you end up in jail, and Junior's at the home for rescued children.

You dismantle Barbie. The last file in her system shows your angry face trying to get her back opened to get the camera out. You carefully put it back together so no one notices. Junior comes home and starts acting up, since he or she knows they can. But you know better...

"Come here, you little brat!" you scream as you catch them once again in the act. Spank, spank, spank, for their own good, of course. The little brat then holds up the Barbie again. "I got that all on camera!" he shouts, the first coherent thing he's said basically in his life. But you know better!

The police show up and examine the Barbie, having no camera and hence no evidence. But Junior isn't finished yet. There's a Fisher Price mobile over the bed that's videotaping everything ... in 3D.
