Not exactly related, but still funny... anyone remember the 'harry potter' broomstick.. made for kids and it vibrates?  Yea, it was taken off the market really quick. :)

Heh, i remember that.  I remember seeing like some news article where some one was like "My 12 year old daughter and my 17 year old both love it! they fight over who gets to play with it" or something like that.
