In what may be parents’ worst nightmare, one of the most in-demand toys this year is something called the Buttheads FartLauncher 3000.
Not surprisingly, it’s a Nerf gun-like gadget that shoots farts. Angie Wong, the founder of the Facebook group Brooklyn Moms, calls it her worst nightmare, but says she caved and got it for her kids. However, she admits, “I can see that thing [being] used on my face one unsuspecting morning.” According to its makers, the flatulent firearm can spread stench up to 10 feet across a room, although they caution that it’s best used in well-ventilated areas or outdoors. It’s intended for kids ages 5 and up, comes with a cartridge capable of “100-plus” blasts and is “silent but deadly.” It may break wind, but it won’t break the bank as it sells for under $20 plus shipping.
