Q: What do these things have in common?

Answer: MESS
These were the gifts given to my children by my mother-in-law. She told us that my husband had toys with a lot of pieces when he was young, and now it is "payback time". I am being completely serious, she ACTUALLY said that! The Zubber does not have a lot of pieces, but on the package it warns parents that this WILL STAIN your clothes, furniture, skin, etc. My daughter opened it up to play, and was instantly covered in an oily film. You may as well give the child a bottle of olive oil to play with, may even be cleaner than this. I think someone should pour oil on my mil and then dump Paperoni and Pixos on her while she walks across a floor covered with marbles.

As Oliver Hardy would have said, "Well, here's another nice mess you got me into!"

Wow, she's putting herself on the fast track to the nursing home--"payback" indeed.`
