    WASHINGTON, DC–In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, Wizco Toys of Montclair, NJ, recalled 245,000 Aqua Assault RoboFighters Monday after three dumb kids managed to kill themselves playing with the popular toy, ruining the fun for everybody else.

    "The tragedy is inconceivable," Wizco president Alvin Cassidy said. "For years, countless children played with the Aqua Assault RoboFighter without incident. But then these three retards come along and somehow find a way to get themselves killed. So now we have to do a full recall and halt production on what was a really awesome toy. What a waste."

      and how much trouble the company got in because idjits swallowed them? Not just 1 - which would be unlikely to do any harm - but multiples?
      I believe the BUCKEYBALL company was either forced out of business or halted production.Because they didnt print a warning label "WARNING! If youre an all American cretin and eat a bunch of these you might get a GI blockage"

        How old was the person/people that swallowed them?

        Was it a small child?  Did you just refer to small children that swallow thing idiots?

        Did you?

          Most of the lawsuits were from the patents of teenagers, mostly girls. Who thought it'd be cool to put a pair in their mouth on the bottom and top of their tongue like a faux piercing. Then, surprise, they swallowed them. Then, surprise, some of them didnt even learn from that but swallowed 2 or 3 or 4 pair before they had that emergency trip to the ER.
          Like I said, swallowing 1 tiny polished metallic ball with no edges doesnt usually put you into emergency surgery even if youre a toddler.

          them swallow mini magnets and possibly for having what was clearly labeled as an adult toy available at all to their small children.....The teenagers, still the parents.....

          Those magnets had warnings up the wazoo, yet now a neat and fun product is gone along with whatever jobs they created because the adults didn't have the common sense god gave a goose and allowed their children different than allowing your little kid access to a gun...

          Mine had their own young...under 10 across the board.....single shot bolt action .22 rifles......They lived in my safe and they never even saw them without all safety precautions and close supervision.  And certainly never touched them unless I handed them to them and was there literally touching the little rug rats until they had built enough trust on the rules they wouldn't sweep the crowd or touch the trigger till ready to fire......
