Check out what I found at Babies R Us yesterday.
On first glance, looks normal enough (if a bit cheesy):
Your first big clue is the name. Check it:
My little Good Girl. As if that is not frightening enough, look what you get when you poke her lower abdomen!
Please tell me I am not the only one frightened by this.
Now before any Christians or other prayer-enthusiastic folk get on me, I am not against prayer. I did plenty of it in my spiritual days. I am against the gross commercialization of religious elements and artifacts however. This is something that turns me way, way off mainstream Christianity.
I am sure there's a market for it, otherwise it wouldn't be on the shelf at BrU, right? but ugh! that's just it. It was on the shelf at BrU. Next to Elmo and the like.
I just hate the message. "Good Girls pray!" I'm sorry but that just makes my skin crawl. Also, if you poke me in the lower abdomen, what will come out of my mouth will be far from the Lord's Prayer. I must not be a "Good Girl."
Boohbah showed his enthusiasm by picking the "Press here for prayer" sticker off and eating it. That's my boy!!
