9-11 Memorial gift shop

Offensive or not, some gift shop toys seem just plain tacky.

They should have bypassed a couple dozen of those environmental impact studies.

They are way too in need of money.

Is that one of those things we used to get as favors at birthday parties where the clown (or whatever it was) was held on by rubber bands and you stuck your thumb underneath and there was a plate that moved up making the attachment go slack and the figure would go limp (being articulated) and then you'd release the plate and the clown would snap back all rigid-like?

That's what I thought the WTC thing might be at first and I thought that was kind of funny and maybe even clever but that's just me.

Eric knows his party favors.

Thanks for that!

I wasn't sure about the rubberband thing and now I know there was a spring in there all along.

Great! Now I don't have to learn anything new all day!

I think it's a string and the spring is for the button.

The model I used was on ebay, two fighters that punch each other and collapse when the button on the bottom is pushed. and there are dozens. One is two poles sticking up that collapse connected with a string with a monkey that spins around.

collapsing push button toys.

This is a joke, right?
Just checking.
Sorry to be just checking but while I am not outraged that there was an exclusive git-down partay at the 9-11 Memorial before it opened to the dreadful smelly vulgar public it does make me question the taste level and tact and basic common sense of our would-be betters. Which has been proven over and over again to be much lower than that of the dreadful smelly vulgar public.

Isn't that Air Force One flying at the Twin Towers?
