toy stores + rape = ?

Like most...sane people, I have some issues with Perez Hilton-- but I was pleasantly surprised to see a post with this headline:

Rape is Funny?

You want to be offended by something? How about a doll depicting a rapist and sold at Toys R Us?

Quentin Tarantino has been turned into a doll to accompany his appearance as Rapist Number One in Robert Rodriguez's Grindhouse movie Planet Terror, which bombed in theatres.

The lifelike miniature is available at Toys R Us stores.

We're sure Tarantino would say, "Oh relax, it's just a joke."

Because rape is so funny, right?


I think it's a bit sad that I'm so suprised at someone in a public forum questioning the comedic impact of rape.
