W-w-w-w-w-Wednesday Would You Rather

Today we revisit the world of pop culture toys, specifically things from when we were children. Both of these toys have made combacks in the recent years so I was wondering.................................


Would you rather...




be machine-gunned to death with Lite-Brite pegs





OR




be assasinated by Cabbage Patch Dolls?






Here are a couple of things to consider before making your decision: glow in the dark corpse, eerie expression on cabbage patch dolls, garbage pail kids retribution.


Happy Pondering!

This will truly be the toughest decision of my day!

Leighann said...

Holy crap.... you're twisted.

Doc said...

This will truly be the toughest decision of my day!

What he said...

Dana said...

Oh, this is an easy one for me!! Especially since I still have the perma-glow coming from my crotch! I'll be machine-gunned to death with Lite-Brite pegs! Won't that be pretty!?!?

WNG said...

I LOVED the Garbage Pail Kids. I had all the cards and was a complete dork about the whole thing. So - here's my question for your question - If I was killed by Cabbag Patch kids could I resurrected as a Garbage Pail Kid? I could be a whole new breed of super hero...

Doc said...

I never had a lite-brite so I guess I have to go with the cabbage patch kids.... My sister had several of those.

(they did kind of give an odd view on adoption though)

As American as Apple Pie said...

Micky-T--Your struggle is my entertainment.

Leighann--who knew?

Dana--There's a new idea for HNT.

G--That would be one awesome superhero!

Doc--No Lite-brite? You poor deprived child. Well, I know that I didn't grow in a cabbage patch. How about you?

Karen said...

I will take the lite-brite pegs. Because I hope I can see them coming at me and use my ninja skills to defend myself.

While I had a few of them, in retrospect, cabbage patch kids are really creepy looking.

Dianne said...

If I was famous I would want to be assasinated by the CPers! Imagine the media spin! Picture the coverage of the search for the cell of Cabbage Patch terrorists.

Otherwise - Lite Brite pegs would be fine. I shall defend myself with my Etch-A-Sketch shield.

Leighann said...

Can't I die peacefully in my sleep as I cuddle a Glo-Worm?

Doc said...

I am with Leighann... but I want to have a bunch of Star Wars action figures kill me.

Cammy said...

I have heard that only the good die young, so I have nothing to fear. Bring on the lite brite pegs!

Come to think of it, Chuckie is sort of a demented cabbage patch kid.

As American as Apple Pie said...

Karen--were you a TMNT fan?

Dianne--good use for the Etch-a-sketch!

Leighann--I prefer my Rainbow Brite doll.

Doc--careful, they might freeze you in carbonite!

Cammy--I never made that connection.

Knight said...

Aww, I want my glow worm back! What about Teddy Ruxpin? He would make a great assassin.
I'm going to have to go with the light brite pegs. It might take a long time but the idea of those hideous cabbage patch dolls chasing me is too terrifying.

Karen said...

Leighann - Oh Glo-Worm. How I loved my glo-worm. I wish I still had it.

Aunt Becky said...

Lite Bright WITH those snappy bracelets that could actually poke your eyes out.

As American as Apple Pie said...

Knight--Teddy Ruxpin scared the crap out of me when I was little.

Karen--Glow-worm was awesome. Now my kids have these other animals that have a color-changing light in them. It is very soothing.

Aunt Becky--Do you mean the bracelets that are stiff until you snap them onto your wrist and then they bend around your arm?

Leighann said...

How many Cabbage Patch Kids are we talking here? Because I'm quite sure I could smother at least four at one time!

Doc said...

HA !!

LOL @ Leighann

Knight said...

Apple- My Teddy Ruxpin was terrifying. You know how it's eyes moved from side to side like it was reading? Well, one of the eyes in my lovely teddy popped back inside it's head and spiraled around wildly. Then because of the strain on the battery the voice slowed down and got really low. It was like possessed demon teddy bear.

Leighann said...

Alright....

I've finally made my decison.

I choose to be bitten by Count Chocula and LIVE FOREVER!

MUWAHAHAHA!

As American as Apple Pie said...

Knight--THAT would give me nightmares for the rest of my life!!!

Leighann--and be able to eat all the chocolate you want w/o getting fat. I'm in!!!

I agree...it would have to be an entire army of Cabbage Patch dolls. I'm pretty sure I could out run the little bastards too!

Bina said...

First of all, I can't believe I missed the Tuesday Word Game! What the hell! I came here today expecting the game and it's freaking Wednesday! What is wrong with me!!!!!

Oah, I think I would rather be assasinated by Cabbage Patch Dolls, cause maybe that would be a lot quicker than having the million of lite-brite pegs it would take to pierce my body!

As American as Apple Pie said...

BTW--Where's TMC???

NoRegrets said...

Lite bright pegs, for sure.

Anndi said...

An overdose of Strawberry Shortcake perfume is not an option?

WomensDaily said...

I'd have to go with Lite Brite pegs. Dolls scare the hell out of me and the mere thought of a bunch of them attacking me just makes me want to run screaming.

Lu' said...

Well how will the cabbage patch doll assinate me? Hmm quick and painlessly or would it try and stab we with its cabbage patch doll size knife, shit that would take forever. I think I'll be machine-gunned with lite-brite pegs. I have a cabbage patch doll and his name is Elwood.

Lesley said...

Cabbage Patch dolls for me..
I adored them and wished I could have been able to afford one growing up.... :-)

Lesley said...

oh... and I think some of you might be remembering Chucky when you think of the cabbage patches chasing you.. Now Chucky was SCARY!

Lesley said...

Also I had to add like Karen I had a Glo Worm... I loved that lil thing!
