Eh. I hate electronic toys. With the exception of tape players, we have none. I don't think they're evil or anything, but I certainly do not believe they can do anything that a real live human being with a little love and patience couldn't do better.

Some people may use it as slang, but that doesn't necessarily make it right. Especially in a place like this where we try (I hope) to be sensitive to one another. I would hate for a carelessly tossed remark to cause pain to any of my brothers or sisters who have been affected by true Nazi-ism. It may be mainstream in the mainstream, but this ain't the mainstream.

ETA- And you will find other discussions about how offensive this loose use of the word Nazi is, including insights from our Jewish sisters, all over MDC.

Toy tyrant works for me.

And can I say that the car would be the absolute last place I would want one of those battery operated thingies? I would probably drive into a tree just to make it stop.

That was hyperbole. I would never actually drive into a tree.
