It sounds ridiculous, but the Evening Standard is reporting that Russia’s government has launched a full investigation to see if anti-Putin activists are using a certain toy to brainwash children. The toy in question?…
Alexi Kazakov works for Russia’s state-owned television network and is quoted by the paper as saying, “Spinners are instruments of zombification, with authoritative medics. They could be used to hynotize people. The toys can negatively affect the psyche and make people open to manipulation.”
Hooo-kay, Alexi. Did someone forget that fidget spinners are TOYS?!
I can see banning them in school…but not for zombification. Disrupting class, now THAT’S a legitimate charge. Sheesh. ~ Jason
