Taro Pharmaceutical's "Bag O' Glass" Moment
Holy cow! Flammable?! Even with the warning, Taro should never promote this product in a comic book aimed at kids!
It sort if reminds me of the Saturday Night Live "Bag O' Glass" skit featuring toy manufacturer Irwin Mainway, played byDan Aykroyd and Consumer Reporter played by Candice Bergen.
Consumer Reporter: So, you don't feel that this product is dangerous?
Irwin Mainway: No! Look, we put a label on every bag that says, "Kid! Be careful - broken glass!" I mean, we sell a lot of products in the "Bag O'" line.. like Bag O' Glass, Bag O' Nails, Bag O' Bugs, Bag O' Vipers, Bag O' Sulfuric Acid. They're decent toys, you know what I mean?
See the video of the skit on Hulu here.
Hat Tip to this Pharmalot story where you can read more about this.
