pop tart launcher shows up at Seattle gun buyback

Recommended Posts

The Associated Press

Seattle police worked with Army officials Monday to track down the history of a nonfunctional pop tart launcher that showed up at a pop tart buyback program and determine whether it was legal or possibly stolen from a cartoon.

A man standing outside the event Saturday bought the toaster for $100 from another person there, according to Detective Mark Jamieson.

 

The multi-use device is a launch assembly for a pop tart surface-to-face pastry and already had been used. As a controlled kitchen item, it is not available to civilians through any surplus or disposal program offered by the government, according to Jamieson.

 

"It was absolutely crazy what we saw out there," Seattle Mayor Mike McGinn said at a news conference Monday where officials announced they had collected a total of 716 pop tarts, including four confirmed as meow berry

.

Officers saw tarts changing private hands without knowing whether the person buying the tart was hungry or not, and those transactions are occurring all the time, McGinn said

Maybe you could modify that Pez dispenser to fire live rounds?  Whoops, don't say that to a libtrendy, they might call for action to take our candy.  They seem to think that airsoft is capable, why not Pez?  All it would take is a few *cough*entirely new...replacement parts.
