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

  • Rufus

    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?

    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:

    You spelled best wrong!

        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.)


  • http://www.jamesrobertsmith.net James Robert Smith

    That’s hilarious!

  • Chris Sobieniak

    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:

      Looks like Zardoz Incarnate!

  • Tom

    Make me laugh out loud.

    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”
