    WalMart Sells X-Rated Straws?

    A mother bought a package of fun-shaped straws, and found 2 of the straws to strongly resemble a male's anatomy.

    Both of my sisters work at WalMarts in other parts of the country, I will ask them if the straws have been pulled at their stores.

    i have bought these straws for my kids before. it tends to be a random set of swirls and loops. these do look ex-rated but i doubt it was meant to look like that. i can not see how this is walmarts fault at all. sometimes random things just happen.

    Hmm. The straws we buy extend in length. Horrors!

    Maybe they got Spencer's shipment instead of their own.

    Ok,I just looked at the link.I really don't think it looks like it at all,unless you want it to. I think it's akin to a piece of toast looking like the image of the Virgin Mary,or a rock formation looking like the image of the Pope and so on.
    But I have to admit,I think artichokes look a little like one. lol.

    I think these look like cowboy hats or something. They don't look like a man's anatomy unless someone has a penchant for thinking that way, anyway, IMO.

    Good Lord - some people are ridiculous. Just like Sherri says - they have all sorts of funny loops - eventually one of them is bound to get twisted into something that resembles a naughty bit. Who would possibly care enough to call Walmart about this?

    Well, if you really look at the pink straw it looks like a woman's chest and the center could be....



    P.S. When I first saw the "male" straw I thought it sorta looked like the space shuttle. **shrugs**

    Oh goodness! Maybe the mom needs a sex education class because those straws do not look like penises.
    I think she's out to make a buck.

    I can't believe Wal-Mart pulled their product because of one alarmist. I expected to see something really shocking. Instead all I saw was kids' fun straws. A couple of them might have been vaguely bell-shaped, but nothing even remotely X-rated.

    Now, now folks. If everyone wants their 15 minutes of fame, let them have a go at it, LOL.

    Maybe like the cheese sandwich of the Virgin Mary, she can peddle it on EBay and make a small fortune.

    The things people complain about.......
    She bought the straws for her 3 yr old daughter.... highly unlikely her 3 yr old would even think like that. My 5 yr old son thought the straws looked like guitars and the pink one looked like a roller coaster.
