A Grandma gifted a Mattel Matchbox toy truck to her 3-year-old grandson because like most 3-year-old boys, he loved playing with trucks. Unbeknownst to both of them though, the phone number painted on the truck directed to a sex line.


As a joke, Jan Barnett, the grandma, called the phone number 1-800-FAST-TOW and was shocked to hear a sultry voice on the other end say this:

"Hey there sexy guy. Welcome to an exciting new way to go live...

And so on. Yup, it was a phone number for a sex line. Mattel said they weren't aware of the problem because when the toy truck was manufactured (in 2000), the phone number wasn't owned by anybody. Their new policy is to prohibit any phone numbers on toys to prevent awkward situations like this from happening. Which is sad! They're robbing a whole generation of kids from having accidental fun!

Wow, people still call sex lines? Serious? There is this place called the Internet, where all of the filth you ever needed or wanted is available for free! Brazilian fart porn? You got it! Ball stomping? No problem. Guys getting fucked by horses? You betcha! Girls eating poop and baby-birding it back to each other? Hate to say it, but yes.

Gay, straight, or somewhere in between? There is something here for you that you will never find at some lame 1-800-Wet-Sliz hotline. Come one, come all over the Internet!
