Tesco condemned for selling pole dancing toy
Tesco has been forced to remove a pole-dancing kit from the toys and games section of its website after it was accused of "destroying children's innocence".

This is so freakin' awesome. The Onion could've come up with this. :-)

Money quote: "This should only be available to the most depraved people who want to corrupt their children."

I very much enjoy the implied statement, doubtless just a product of an outraged sputterer's bad grammar, that for those people, it's a perfectly acceptable product. And are you implying those folks don't shop at Tesco, Dr. Rogers?

Cue Monty Python skit:

"What are you planning to do with this toy, sir?"
"Why, corrupt my children of course!"
"And are you depraved?"
"Oh yes, me and the missus, we're quite depraved."
"Really, you'd say you, both, are most depraved?"
"Oh yes, sir, most depraved, I should say so!"
"Well, that's quite alright then, he's your receipt. And a good day to you."
"Good day to you, sir."

I like how the fellow claims it will "destroy childrens' lives."

Exaggerate much?

They should bundle it with some ribbons and call it a Maypole...wouldn't even change the symbolism.
