Black Friday: taxonomy gone wrong


Apparently this toy company needs a zoologist on staff. (Parents: this is the perfect gift to seriously confuse your pre-adolescent wanna-be biologist, and derail them into a more profitable career in law!) From FailBlog.

    No, this is an example of things that may likely become “collector’s items”.

    I think that’s a fluke. The Wild Republic plush toys are actually awesomely cute, and I’ve never seen a problem with the card they come with before (it’s also printed in 4 languages).

    WTF!?! Could this be the Not-So-Intelligent Designer at work? (@Monimonika — I think you’re right!)

    That’s pretty bad. Usually Wild Republic gets these right.

    Maybe the shark ate the koala.

    @atrw4t64w6h – No, I’m pretty sure that’s a fin:-D

    I think John has it right. It’s a bonus, the koala’s inside the shark. The challenge is putting the pieces back together without spilling too much dacron.
