Attention Parents: An Important Killer Tambourine Update

Murderous tambourines:  Now preying on YOUR children?  News at eleven.

Thank goodness for the diligent journalists who cover the killer band instruments beat; otherwise, parents may not have been aware of the life-threatening consequences of allowing their child to be a budding percussionist.  To wit:

Firefighters received a bizarre call out yesterday after a boy managed to get a tambourine stuck around his neck while at a Napier day care center.  A fire crew was sent to Kidspace on Kennedy Road shortly before 9am.  A spokesman from the Napier Fire Service said it took a crew member around a minute to remove the tambourine.

The boy and instrument both came away unscathed from the incident.

Oh sure, THIS time.  But how many frightening daycare incidents, brave firefighters putting their lives on the line and truly terrible Yoko Ono songs will it take before government bans this annoying, er… I mean, DANGEROUS instrument once and for all?

Because sharing is caring, as I tell my kids. (Except my wine. Never my wine.)
