Anyone who has kids – or has ever been around them at all – knows well the love/hate relationship families have with loud toys.
As in, kids tend to love them and parents tend to hate them.
That’s probably why the news that a toy chicken had been recalled for playing music too loud inspired so many readers to crack jokes about the dreaded loud toy.
Many readers had ideas for how they could use the recalled toy.
“You know that friend or relative of yours that never shuts up about their kids? I think I found their kid's next Christmas present,” one reader wrote.
“I'd like to get one and play it for telemarketers when they call my house,” another wrote.
Several others suggested that it would be nice if a too-loud recall extended beyond just toys.
“If only some people (could) be ‘recalled’ for the same reason,” wrote one.
Others joked that they thought the “Chicken Dance” was unsafe at any volume.
“And here I thought the Chicken Dance song was banned in accordance with the Geneva Convention,” joked one.
