"Warning: Inhaling the fumes when burning this flag may be hazardous to your health, resulting in serious injury or death."
Hope several of them become infertile because of the fumes or worse.......Delayed after effects work nicely too. It’s harder to pinpoint who’s to blame.
Consumer Reporter: Alright. Fine. Fine. Well, we’d like to show you another one of Mr. Mainway’s products. It retails for $1.98, and it’s called Bag O’ Glass. [ holds up bag of glass ] Mr. Mainway, this is simply a bag of jagged, dangerous, glass bits.
Irwin Mainway: Yeah, right, it’s you know, it’s glass, it’s broken glass, you know? It sells very well, as a matter of fact, you know? It’s just broken glass, you know?
Consumer Reporter: [ laughs ] I don’t understand. I mean, Pakistanis could seriously cut themselves on any one of these pieces!
Irwin Mainway: Yeah, well, look - you know, the average Paki, he picks up, you know, broken glass anywhere, you know? The beach, the street, garbage cans, parking lots, all over the place in any big city. We’re just packaging what they want! I mean, it’s a creative toy, you know? If you hold this up, you know, you see colors, every color of the rainbow! I mean, it teaches them about light refraction, you know? Prisms, and that stuff! You know what I mean?
Consumer Reporter: So, you don’t feel that this product is dangerous?
Irwin Mainway: No! Look, we put a label on every bag that says, “Third Worlders, esp. Pakistanis! Be careful - broken glass!” I mean, we sell a lot of products in the “Bag O’” line.. like Bag O’ Glass, Bag O’ Nails, Bag O’ Bugs, Bag O’ Vipers, Bag O’ Sulfuric Acid. Bag O’ Toxic Flags. They’re decent toys, you know what I mean?”
As a Boy Scout Leader, I’ve burned lots of flags (for disposal in a respectful manner) but I’m not stupid enough to suck in the thick black smoke.
We once disposed of one that was about 10X15. Man, what a fire.
