"Cigarette Dispensing Donkey" Is Amazon's #1 "Mover And Shaker" In Toys

Reader Scott points out that the number one item on the “Movers & Shakers List” in the toy category (like, kids toys) on Amazon.com is the above pictured “cigarette dispensing donkey.”

Scott says: “#1 was kind of amusing, not sure what Amazon is trying to say here.”

They’re saying that lots of people want to buy a toy donkey that shoots cigarettes out of its rear. Who are we to judge, the reviewer gave the donkey 4 out of 5 stars. Every single one of you should buy this.

    Actually no. What they are saying is a lot more people bought this toy in the last 24 hours compared to how many were bought in the previous 24. 17169 percent more, to be exact.

    A) You missed a golden opportunity for a Hudsucker Proxy reference here.

    B) I know what you’re getting at, but not all toys are kids’ toys

    I’m not sure what the Amazon targeted ads are trying to say here. 3 of the four I’m seeing are related to donkeys, barnyard animals, and cartoon animals; one is “The Starbucks Experience.” I wonder what the relation between donkeys and Starbucks is that brings this ad up…

    The cigarette donkey is featured in the new “Hairspray” movie. Not sure if that’s what is causing the bump in sales, but could be.

    It’s funny, but makes my kitsch senses tingle.

    “JLo” is “Nuyorican,” not from Mexican roots. Not that what most Americans see passing for Mexican food is either. Hmm.

    @Troy F.: So, more “adult” toys could show up in Amazon’s toy department? Have fun, kids.

  19. TVarmy says:

    Oh, they have a little cop-out at the end.

    “Works well with candy cigarettes too!”

    Granted, those aren’t good for kids either. They make smoking look fun.
