Shorter Selwyn Duke, Ruhnoomerka:
When love was a warm toy gun
- The world would be a better place if boys could play with realistic* toy guns (but only with other boys).
‘Shorter’ concept created by Daniel Davies and perfected by Elton Beard. We are aware of all Internet traditions.™
*Selywyn’s bout of la nostalgie de la boue is prompted by a video of a 1960s toy commercial showing boys playing with toy guns, toy mess kits and the like. Selwyn says:
Every toy gun in the commercial looks (gasp!) realistic; there are no sissified colors, no orange plastic piece at the end of the barrel.
The reason for this, however, has nothing to do with the actual toy guns but probably with the fact that the commercial is in black and white.
