    If this isn’t a Photoshopped joke, it’s off the charts !

    That’s one of the funniest things I’ve seen in a while.

    I hope it’s not one of those thundersticks…

    • Deaniac

      You’d be giving Wolverine a blowjob, and the thunderstick would inflate into the shape like a…

      OH GOD.

  • EricW

    Brilliant, but is this really worse than the anatomically correct Hulk doll?

  • http://pizzasketchbook.blogspot.com Kingfish

    This is so funny. I wouldn’t be able to bring myself to inflate it!

    This reminded me of a hilarious video game controller ad I remember seeing in one of my old comic books. This was YEARS ago. Thanks to Google I was somehow able to actually find it!

    I can’t imagine how this managed to actually get to print. Didn’t this agency have any kind of editors or anything to catch this?!

    Yep, this is real:

    However, the famous picture of the Superman pillow snuggler is fake:

    Oh ho ho my.

    Now we finally know why Wolverine is always so angry…but probably not as irked as the parent who has to INFLATE this ghastly toy!

    I remember seeing this awhile ago in a Mike Mozart toy review:

        Sorry Jerry. . . I shared it on my FB page and folks dove in !

        What about the youtube proof? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-uXtwAJYRcY I say Onion’s hoax claim is a hoax.

  • http://www.onanimation.com Daniel Caylor

    I really can’t see how that can be a mistake…

  • uncle wayne

    Hysterical! Nothing i like more than a visual pun!!

    • Fred!!!

      THE “Uncle” Wayne?????? The one thanked in the acknowledgements of the great new book “The 100 Greatest Cartoons Of All Times” ?????

  • http://weirdocorner.blogspot.com Eric Noble

    Oh, this is PRICELESS!!! I think this shows that either nobody is paying attention to the design of the toy, or that someone has a wicked sense of humor. Either way it’s hilarious!!

  • Guy Incognito

    It’s not a hoax! It’s real! (Unless Mike Mozart made these himself.)

    That’s hilarious!

    Apparently it all makes scenes now. Just be grateful it wasn’t coming out of the ‘other end’!

    Oh, that is evil.

    I think that the transforming Punisher toy is worse:

    If I remember right, Hugh Jackman appeared on a talk show (The Daily Show?) showing off this product. The story he told was his son found it in a store and asked to buy it, and asked him afterward to blow it up. Jackman was about to inflate the toy until….

    Kinda like the automatic pilot in “Airplane”

    Might have to go and buy this today. It would be a great gag gift.
