Donna, TX -- Parents are angry about their kids being exposed to some X-rated party favors at a busy intersection.

They say the topless piñatas at a shop on the corner of Val Verde and Business 83 are inappropriately exposing their children to pornography.

The adult party favors are being sold in plain view next to children themed pinatas, such as Batman and Elmo.

The topless pinatas sell for around $45 compared to $15 for the cartoon character designs.

A worker at the store says the pinatas are big sellers for bachelor parties.

Saw a little video on the evil pinatas. Perhaps they should sell them with pasties. LOL. They really aren’t that bad.

What’s bad about the female pinatas is deeper than how they look. MEN BASHING A FEMALE LIKENESS APART WITH A BAT.

Stupid idea ... but topless is not x-rated (it is R-rated).

Hey! Like Duh-bya always reminded us, family values don't stop at the Rio Grande...

This is his culture.

Agreed. Who would marry a guy who had one of these at his bachelor party? Only an idiot.

Exactly. Can you imagine the absurdity of calling a paper mache pinata of a topless woman x rated or pornographic?

Oh wait. That’s not how you meant it, is it?

Tasteless and inappropriate for display on the street, yes. X rated and pornographic, not by a long shot.

I suppose in the culture that likes pinatas, it could just be practice, you know, warming up for the real thing.

Yeah, that was my thought, too. What a horrible message for a bachelor party -- bashing toy women with a bat until they break open. Ugh.
