Secret Sam

Holiday gifts.

Being a boy, I never got ovens or any of that stuff.

I got some cool astronaut shit.

But here's the greatest toy ever:

Fuk me i would have loved one of those yet I do not recall those ads (and I was a TV kid back in the day).

I was not yet six when that ad came out; you older boys may have liked it.

Heh heh.

The white bullets shot by the Secret Sam were, not to put too fine a point on it, deadly.

Meaning that if the gun could fire them with any velocity, they would pierce and kill.

They were HARD white plastic.

At best, they merely blinded.

No one would sell these now. Not just for consdierations of sensitivity, but liability for destruction and pain.

I wish I had found my old Jarts® Lawn Dart set when cleaning out mum's house. They sell for a lot on e-bay. Talk about you product liability.
