Quote# 61053

My 7yr old received a Magic Eight Ball for his birthday, and red flags immediately went up. To me it's a distant cousin of the ouija board. Plus it was a gift from my husband's family, who has a long dark troubled past and present. Right off the bat my son was "consulting" the ball for all his decisions.

Am I crazy (like my husband thinks) about this concern, or are my instincts well founded?

I saw this thread. It's...it's all pretty kooky.

Are you fucking kidding me? OF COURSE your instincts are well-founded......in lunacy of course.

Yeah you're el loco.

Are you crazy? Magic 8 ball says "It is decidedly so."

As I said in my comment on the last post, my parents thought like this.

It's ridiculous. If I ask one "Will Fred take me to the prom?" (note, I am past prom age and I do not know any Freds) there is a good chance it will say 'yes.' It's like a die with answers instead of pips.

You need a check-up from the neck up.

3/31/2009 5:16:50 PM


You're completely fucking insane. Seek immediate medical attention now!!!

It's no fair when they write their own jokes.

3/31/2009 5:24:40 PM


<q>Am I crazy?</q>

Signs point to yes.

Well, you're a middle-age woman who hangs out on a forum with other people who constantly pray for the destruction of the Earth. Sounds sane to me!

This is the bit that worries me:

Plus it was a gift from my husband's family, who has a long dark troubled past and present.

Taking bets on this question:
How long until she starts considering her husband and children hell's brood and decides to do something about them?

"Am I crazy?"

Why don't you ask the Magic 8-Ball.

3/31/2009 5:30:56 PM


Using a Magic-8 Ball would give you more accurate answers than praying.

3/31/2009 5:35:36 PM


Double post.

This one is like shooting fish in a barrel.

3/31/2009 5:45:05 PM


I have just 5 words to say. LMFAO!

3/31/2009 5:45:14 PM


Yes, you're crazy.

3/31/2009 5:48:31 PM


Let your son consult all he wants. I think it has 10-15 answers but they are all murky and say the same thing, yes, no maybe. It's just for fun.

Honestly, does your own shadow scare you?

Enough of that nonsense, isn't nice to have quotes on the last day of the month? Yay!!!

3/31/2009 5:48:43 PM


It's a frigging TOY.

Am I crazy


3/31/2009 5:54:20 PM


Ummm....It's a mass produced piece of plastic that's been a popular toy for decades. Yes, you're crazy.

Your husband is right. Your book teaches that you must, as a True Christian Woman, listen to and obey him, lest you be cast into hell.

3/31/2009 5:57:19 PM


your crazy

You could consult the Magic Eight Ball for the answer to the question of your sanity.
