If it’s not real, then how does Mike Mozart have it in his hands? Besides, it’s an inflata-hammer, not a blow-up doll. Wow, this site is getting dumber.

I took the “not real” part of the thing as being that the whole “it’s part of a gay consipiracy” thing was not real, not that the toy itself was not real.  Sort of like all those other pictures that make the rounds on the Internet where a real picture is given a fake background.

Wow, this site is getting dumber.

Especially when it starts having people who judge an entire website by one comment on it. . .

Ah, such a gentleman, aren’t you PoserJay?

I read Alex’s entry (which you apparently didn’t before starting this thread), and the article on The Advocate:

Photos of a supposedly new inflatable toy by comic book and film giant Marvel made the rounds this morning—a blow-up Wolverine doll with a strategically placed inflation tube right on his crotch.

But further digging confirms the toy is a hoax hatched by the clever folks over at The Onion’s affiliate website ChristWire.org.

I suppose there could have been a production screw up that resulted in this.  But since it’s an old joke already, I think it’s credible that it’s a hoax. 

By the way, “fail” is a verb not a noun.  We already have a noun—it’s “failure”.

Oh but wait a minute—I’m dumb, so I guess I should emulate whatever language patterns I get off of YouTube.

We’re not getting dumber, you’re just becoming more of a prick.

Unfortunately, this does seem to be a legitimate “Inflatable Wolverine Toy”. So the Claim that an Inflatable Wolverine toy with the inflation point being rather unfortunately located is not a hoax.

I’ve gone through a few articles an not unless it was a really ridiculous site did it claim that it was a “Wolverine Bolow-up doll” specifically.

The Inflatable Wolverine toy with an inflation point located where the male genitalia would be is thus not a Hoax. The claim that it is a “Blow up doll” is. Who, if anyone looking at that picture would realistically assume that it was a blow-up doll?

Meh…

It’s like a scene from a Steve Martin movie. Some guy is blowing that thing up when the female love interest comes by, gives a weird look, etc.

Like something from Police Squad…

Actually, the scene you want is from Airplane, with the stewardess inflating Otto, the autopilot..
