No Need to Worry About Chinese Toys

Upon hearing that Mattel was recalling several toys made in China, including the much-beloved Polly Pockets that can be found living throughout my house, my wife decided to explain the situation to my inquisitive daughters. (Incidentally, they had already noted before that a lot of toys were made in China).
Anyway, my wife explained that some of those toys weren’t safe, etc. and the people who made them were “recalling” them for safety reasons. To which my clever daughters replied, “Well, we don’t have to worry, then. All of our Polly Pockets came from the North Pole!”
My wife said she didn’t tell them that sometimes Santa outsources to China.
{N.B. We don’t have any of the unsafe Polly’s in our house.}

Senator Whitehouse:
“Lead? Did someone say lead? Quick, get Motley Rice on the phone! When I was RI AG I gave them that sweetheart no-bid deal for the lead paint suit. Do you have any idea how much it costs to run U.S. Senate campaigns? Mattel? Toys? National distribution? Just imagine what the right legislation could be worth the Motley Rice? What great timing, too! And we can even reprise the “for the children” spin! Quick, quick, get McConnell on the phone!”
