Frog Man Butt Battery

My niece got a Frog Man toy as a gift. The toy itself is kind of cool, a little battery-powered man that swims through the water, but the back of the box had us laughing forever:

Frog Man

Check out where you put the battery… and how you have to turn him on. Ahem. For the kids!

Here, a demonstration of battery insertion:

I can see why they've never made a swimming version of Barbie.

Is that packaging supossed to look retro, or did they unearth this from the Island of Misfit Toys?

Does this count as a "poop" Ping?

The best use of a frogman toy is in Almodóvar's Atame (aka Tie Me Up, Tie Me Down. Anyone who saw it knows just what I'm talking about . . . wink wink.

You think they could have made it so that the battery goes in the oxygen tank.

You need to submit this to Maxim magazine's "Unintentional Porn" monthly contest.

The first thing I thought of when I read the top part was Tie Me Up, Tie Me Down... if you've seen the movie, you'll know why. Hint: it's Rated NC-17.
