So, you’ve probably heard the story by now… Ohio toy collector Jim Schultz walked into a Toys R Us, and walked out angry because of a Dexter action figure he found (and strangely enough, purchased, making sure the company profited from keeping the toy in stock). He said that it’s not the toy itself that he takes issue with, however he doesn’t feel it should be sold at Toys R Us alongside Barbie and Care Bears and all those other wholesome toys for children. Apparently, Toys R Us should instead only cater to children, and not make any money from the nerd population that has more money than brains and will buy any action figure that bares a likeness to their favourite TV or movie characters. But is Dexter the most violent thing at Toys R Us? Hardly… this week’s Dose of Buckley below.

So, perhaps you’ve heard the name “Ashley Anne Kirilow” by now. She’s the young lady who decided to take advantage of the last few remaining humans who aren’t completely cynical (those of us who’ve been converted for a long time now call you “suckers”), and faked a terminal illness for her own profit. Now, this is the part of the ever-predictable Buckley rant formula where I post the audio link where I call this woman several bad words that would make a drunken sailor say “wow, that’s a little overboard”, but instead this week… I decide to play devil’s advocate, and ask the question “who are you to judge?”
