I had to look at that thing three times to make sure it wasn't a joke. My last assignment at work was, among other things, the head of the unit that issued "Sexually Oriented Entertainer" licenses. Whenever a large convention or sporting event came to town we would be swamped as dancers from across the country flocked here to make the big bucks.
We issued maybe a thousand new licenses each year, but when the Super Bowl came to town we did that in two days. We had topless dancers lined up on the sidewalks literally three quarters of the way around the building. Some of them could be described as what most folks think of as the stereotypical topless dancer, but a lot of them were girls in their late teens and early twenties. Many brought their kids with them.
I was outside looking at the line trying to decide how much help I needed when the media showed up. One print journalist asked me what I thought of it all.
"I think the girls represent a lot of parents' crushed dreams, and thinking of their kids' futures is even more depressing."
Luckily that didn't make it in the paper.
When I look at this "toy" I'm utterly stunned at the stupidity behind it. You have to assume that at least some of the people involved in the creation and marketing of it were parents. What kind of complete ass decides that "pole dancing" is something for a child to emulate. What kind of parent would not stand up and say "this is entirely wrong"?
