Yuppie Toddlers

I just don't think this is right:

It's never too early to promote environmental irresponsibility and frenzied consumerism, I guess.

"How can this be wrong if it feels so right?"
(Didn't Expose sing that line?)

Anyway, I agree. That IS totally wrong. But, now that preschoolers have so much disposeable income, it was only a matter of time before they caught the SUV craze.

This does not phase me a bit. The last neighborhood I lived in, it wasn't just "keep up with the Jones." it was "Keep up with the Jones kids." almost every single kid in the neighborhood had one of these if you didn't you were an outcast, it was just plain pathetic. The worst thing was this "community" actually advertised in papers to get people to live there. The ad actually said "Young, affluent, christian residents..." Might as well have said "Old, poor and any other religion need not apply." again, pathetic.

Wow. You can see them retiring to a yuppie wine bar before they host a dinner party with an impressive guest list, can't you? And their kids.

My poor kid would have the Economy Hyundi Accent model.Or the motorized city bus model.Making stops at the south side of Brookdale.

The best thing about this image is that the kids expressions are as if they are hurtling down a roller coaster. HA! My fiancee's niece has the "Beach Barbie Dune Buggy" powerwheels and she usually has a look of confusion on her face. Probably because the damn thing can't run faster than 3 mph. Good thing the makers of powerwheels are promoting the rearing of NeoCons. I have posted the exact opposite of this mentality on (See "The Answer to Our Future")

The kiddie Hummer probebly comes with one of those stickers of Calvin pissing on a chevy/ford symbol for the back windsheild.

Isn't "hummer" slang for a blow job?

It's terrible that kids get joy from toys, it just teaches them that to buy things that might bring them a little joy is right thing to do. Heaven forbid they might aspire to be successful enough to afford one of these beasts when they become older. ;)

It's a gas-guzzling monster road-hog of a truck that is totally useless to 98% of the people that own them. It's an excessive, unnecessary, environmentally destructive tank that has little use beyond that of being a status symbol. Sure, the kids don't know that, but the elitist parents who buy it for their kids do, and the marketers who plop that Hummer logo on there know exactly who they're marketing to. I'm not saying, I'm just saying.

A good friend at work told me that her husband just bought one of these for their 2 yr old son's birthday. Timely post.

Totally timely post...I just saw a grown-up hummer in my neighborhood with what looked like two snowmobiles on top of it. So wrong!

*Can you name the truck with four wheel drive,
smells like a steak and seats thirty-five..
Canyonero! Canyonero! ...
12 yards long, 2 lanes wide,
65 tons of American Pride!
Canyonero! Canyonero! ...
She blinds everybody with her super high beams,
She's a squirrel crushing, deer smacking, driving machine!
Canyonero!-oh woah, Canyonero! (Yah!)*

It makes perfect sense: Men with small penises need Hummers. Little boys have small penises. Ergo ...

I say, it is never too early for the white boys to start dating asian girls.
