IMABARI, Ehime -- A paint firm here is hoping to add color to wedding receptions in Japan with a new device it has jointly developed -- a gun-shaped party cracker that shoots out a teddy bear.
Sunamiya, a paint firm based in Imabari, Ehime Prefecture, announced the development of the device, which blasts a teddy bear equipped with a parachute into the air. The teddy bear parachutes down afterwards.
Developers hit on the idea after noticing that it had become a trend for people to throw teddy bears into the air instead of bouquets at wedding receptions."
Now just imagine the hue and cry from the nanny's here should such a thing be imported. Then again, it probably wouldn't do well in the more populist states except for Florida, and forget Texas as there are so many gun laws banning this that or the other thing that might even resemble a gun, that everyone at a reception would need to be licensed to carry, and even then would stand a chance at being arrested.Cool though.
