So, there's this thing out there called Flower Shells:
And that's fine, if a bit ironic in that the whole "Guns are bad, mmkay? But if we make them shoot flowers suddenly they're good again" thing only lends more proof to the fact that it isn't the tool that makes something dangerous, but rather the intent behind it. Okay hippie, whatever makes you happy. Buy a shotgun to shoot flowers? Sure, why not.
But after I scrolled down a bit on their website, I damn near fell out of my chair from laughing at the cluenessness of it all.
|In the immortal words of Eminem, "I'm going to hell... who's coming with me?" |
Yes, I know it's in incredibly poor taste to laugh at this. It's also, in my opinion, incredibly tone-deaf to offer that particular product in America. If a regular ammunition company offered something like this, the Internet Outrage Machine would immediately switch on and accuse them of insensitivity and thinking only of profit at the expense of the memory of dead children.
So why can't I hold these yahoos to the same standards and point & laugh at their idiocy? They shouldn't get a pass just because they're green.
