Penis-Shaped Play-Doh Toy Ruins Christmas for Uptight People Everywhere

Since when is penis-making not Play-Doh 101?

Play-doh had the hard job of doing some damage control on Facebook after what I can only assume was a cock-up in the design phase resulted in a plastic accessory looking less like the Cake Mountain icing maker it was supposed to be and more like, well, a dil-doh.

And the people who say it looks like a penis aren’t exactly wrong, either:

Plenty of actual sex toys don’t look that much like penises.

But ruining Christmas? That’s probably a bit of a stretch. As with most cases of inappropriate innuendo for children, the ones who get it are already beyond being affected, and the ones who don’t will never notice. That hasn’t stopped Play-Doh from frantically deleting pictures like this one from their Facebook page:

Which has just resulted in more people showing Play-Doh the Play-D in response, so unnecessary censorship mission accomplished, everyone. Well done.

Man, Play-Doh’s head of social media is going to need a stiff drink when this all blows over.
