Well, it is official; this year’s inductee into the Toy Hall of Fame is none other than the stick (read the good news here)! That’s right, the stick beat out many other great toys, including the rock and the toad. This is one more Hall of Fame that the stick can be added to. Currently, I believe that the stick also holds a special place in the following museums:
The Tourniquet and Splint Hall of Fame;
The International Objects that Cause Eye-Gouges Hall of Fame;
The Things Used to Beat Dogs Hall of Fame; and
The Splinter Museum.
So, the next time you come across a stick, please remember the importance that it holds as, among other things, a toy. Don’t just throw it away, snap it or burn it…tell a young child the importance of that stick, and then sell it to him and make a quick buck! Of course, by following my advice, that kid’s parent may chase you with the stick and remind you of the fact that it can be used to beat humans too!
