Why our Kids will Never Amount to Anything
It’s a sticker that you’re supposed to put on your light switch. Apparently, this is supposed to be “fun”.
Lamest. Prize. Ever.
When I was a kid, Cracker Jack used to give out magnifying glasses, whistles, small toys, mazes, tiny guns, etc.
Now THOSE were prizes.
But a scrap of paper…? I’m sorry, that is NOT a prize.
That’s just STUPID.
I feel sorry for today’s kids. In our Politically-Correct, sanitized, safety-oriented lawsuit-ridden society, we’ve become so fearful that we won’t even allow our kids the joy of finding a small prize in a box of candy. (God forbid should little Damien choke on the small parts and sue the company!)
Our parents and grandparents grew up with bottle rockets, cap-guns, candy cigarettes, violent cartoons, fire-crackers, slingshots…AND Cracker Jack toys. They were allowed to experience life, discover things on their own, and they learned to cope with danger and risk.
And look at what they accomplished. Our grandparents invaded the beaches of Normandy and pushed back the Nazis, and our parents put a man on the moon.
Meanwhile, we give little Kaylee and little Joshua lame-ass stickers to put them on their light-switches.
What the hell is THAT supposed to teach them?
Besides, what self-respecting kid would actually even want to DO that?
I weep for the next generation.
