Ever watch something you weren’t expecting and it just makes you absolutely dumbfounded? And not dumbfounded in a good way either. More like dumbfounded by the mass spread of stupidity. I wonder how many times I can say the word “dumbfounded”. Anyway, there’s a television commercial about Nerf guns. Nothing spectacularly new there. But now they’re making Nerf weapons for girls. Because Katniss Everdeen can shoot a bow so now girls should be able to stylishly shoot Styrofoam from one. Key word there is stylish.
The Heartbreaker is a bow-like weapon in the girlish series of Nerf guns washed in pink, purple, and white. Because you got to look just downright cute when you pop that pesky neighborhood boy in the forehead with some foam.
Maybe I’m just in a mood today. Maybe I should be happy that girls are being included in something that doesn’t involve nail polish and frilly dresses. Or maybe people are dumb. Hey, girls, we make Nerf guns for the guys but now you’re actually allowed to play too! See all of the pretty colors and girl-power names? Because who wouldn’t have fun posing with a pink gun called “Pink Crush”?
I don’t even know what I’m rambling about. Maybe there’s not a particular reason other than just feeling wrong. But I’ll let you leave your own opinions about it!
