We regret to inform you that a favorite come-back line of mothers everywhere has recently met a tragic end.
As advertised on the Farm and Fleet Toyland Web site, Daisy now packages its famous Red Ryder BB gun with a pair of safety goggles.
This revelation caused panic amongst American mothers, who realized that their favorite line of, “You’ll shoot your eye out.” will no longer be valid. Mothers attempting to use this old standby will now be met with a new counter-attack from their beloved child, who will eagerly show her the advertisement which harkens in the new era of shooting fun without the danger of losing an eye.
It is with heavy hearts that we bid the coup de grâce of mother come-back lines farewell.
