Play-Doh is deleting comments from their Facebook page after parents expressed outrage over a new penis-shaped toy.
Saw your sketch for the applicator tube the other day. Looks stark...needs more flair. Don't think kids will be able to hold it well, either. Can you make a ridge that circles up the tube for easy grippin'?
It does look a bit plain, huh? I'll make that ridge for ya!
We just got a memo from R+D re: beads which kids looooove these days. Can you make a ridge of beads that circles the tip of the applicator? Thanks bud.
I appreciate all the research you're putting into this and I'd love to design that ring of beads for you. This dough applicator is going to look really artful and interesting!
I'm just a teensy bit worried that, with the beads and the ridge, this applicator pen might start to look like an adult-oriented pleasure object? Just my POV, could be totally off. Don't mean to imply that's what you're goin' for. But...do you know what I mean?
Nope, can't say I do, Bob!
Okee-dokie, just my imagination then. Get your brain out of the gutter, Bob! Hahaha.
I'll get right on those beads.
I totally forgot about it, but we need finger holders at the base of the tube. Alright?
Ha, you must mean the base of the shaft? 'Cause this is what it looks like now:
Sorry, that joke was in poor taste. Sometimes I joke when I'm uncomfortable. It's a compulsion, really. My wife always complained about it (things were really bad when her Mother died).
Obviously, we are all just trying to create an object that allows children to use their imagination + satiate their hunger with a little non-toxic dough now and then.
I didn't mean to imply whatever you think I meant to imply.
All the best,
YOU'RE FIRED BOB.
Just kidding: we love the new design! It looks like Rapunzel wrapped her hair around a beautiful tower.
Thx so much,
I've been having dreams where plastic penises (penii?) fly towards me. Today one pierced my heart and I died on a trash can. When I woke up, my mouth tasted salty, like Play Doh, and I felt like vomiting.
WTF, SAM? I'm being crucified by management! You told them I wanted to put the beads on the fucking penis? You're the pedo creep who wanted to make a fucking sex toy for toddlers! I will fucking recruit Fucking Kim Jong Un to hack this mainframe and find the emails. YOU WILL WAKE UP IN A PENIS-SHAPED CASKET, MOTHERFUCKER.
