In Which I Can't Help Myself

The Boss and I were at our second home the other day (the bookstore), and as is customary, we both went our separate ways. She went to what I call the Bloodsucker Section, while I went to see if there was anything new in the horror/fiction section. I exhausted the sections that I find interesting within about ten minutes, and then went to track down The Boss to see what she was up to.

I found her in the young adult area with a couple of different books in her hands, looking at the latest in a certain series. I don't find anything in the young adult section remotely interesting, but that's probably because I'm not a young adult. I let my eyes wander aimlessly around the various titles, and finally I found something that held my attention.

The Boss turned around to look at me when she heard me chuckle to myself. "What?"

I pointed. "Look. Woody's Big Dance."

The Boss sighed and rolled her eyes, which is a very common reaction that I get. Perhaps I'm not as mature as I should be all the time, but so what? I have a good time.

"Want me to show you Woody's Big Dance when we get home?" I asked, waggling my eyebrows.

"Uh, no." She turned her back, shaking her head.

Right above the shelf that held that particular toy was this lovely gem:

Now, I know that these are geared towards kids and are meant to be innocent and cute... but come on. Seriously. The phrase "Ride 'em Cowboy!" some rope, and some dude watching from the side? That could mean something entirely different to any slightly immature and dirty-minded individual (raise your hand if you fit that description). 

Coming from Disney, the folks who purportedly gave a Priest in The Little Mermaid a boner, it doesn't surprise me all that much. The marketing exec's probably got a good chuckle out of it themselves.

Happy Monday, folks.

P.S. Today is Memorial Day. Please take a moment to remember those who have died serving our country.

"Ride em Cowboy!" -- what do you mean?


Maybe there was a reason they called it the Wild West...

Mad Woman said...

So next time Boy Spawn does his "dancing penis" routine, I can tell him that what he's actually doing is "Woody's Big Dance"?

Kim said...

*raises hand*

I can find something dirty in nearly anything.

Also the Woody that comes with the book looks quite ill.

Jeff said...

Awesome. Reminded me of an article on -- give it a look, sir. I think you'll enjoy it:

Keep your minds in the gutter, guys. Life is more fun that way.

Queen of Ruckus said...

I agree with Jeff, going through life wih a mind in the gutter is more fun than not. Note how in the second picture, Woody seems a little too "happy" looking right at that cowgirl's "hoo hoo." That is hilarious! Dirty, dirty Disney. Gotta love it.

Chuck said...

Some of us have to take things the wrong way, otherwise where would most humor come from? I have raised both hands to this!

Dylan Murphy said...

Having a mind in the gutter allows you to ignore the things that normal people think about.

Aunt Juicebox said...

I always thought giving him the name Woody was very tragic.

Didactic Pirate said...

Heh. On the one hand, I just laughed out loud. On the other hand, I'm going to be secretly looking for porn references every time my family and I watch one of the Toy Story movies from now on. Your fault.

Angie said...

I want both of those toys immediately.

carissa said...

hahah love it. Amazing toys and a fabulous find!

Roxy said...

I guess I can put my hand down now?

X said...

Glad to know we share the same sense of humor. :)

Badass Geek said...

Little Ms Blogger: I have to wonder, too.

Mad Woman: Yes, actually. =)

Kim: He does!

Jeff: Brilliant.

Queen of Ruckus: They have to know how else these things can be interpreted.

Chuck: The world would be a boring place without us perverted folk.

Dylan Murphy: Indeed.

Aunt Juicebox: Me, too.

Didactic Pirate: I'll gladly take the fault for that. =)

Angie: I know. Me, too... sort of.

Carissa: Thanks!

Roxy: I guess so.

X: I'm glad to know it, too.

The woody that comes with that book is a little swollen.
