The Consumer Product Safety Commission is run by humorless folks who are pleased to ban little toys on the remote chance that a child somewhere might skin a knee or bruise an elbow. They're out to bubble-wrap society.
The killjoys at the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) are trying to ban a popular toy known as Buckyballs. These are balls made from powerful rare-earth magnets that stick together and can be rearranged into interesting geometric shapes. It's just the sort of thing one would expect to see on the desk of a corporate executive for use as a stress reliever during a boring conference call.
"There has been an uptick in sales in the last month or so because of all the publicity we've gotten," Mr. Zucker said. "We credit that to people who are supporting us and want to show support. For that matter, they're not sure how long they can get the product, so they want to get it now."
"We're taking a humorous but hard approach to saving our business," Mr. Zucker told The Washington Times.
