You know how it is. Your kids are playing with their brand new Play-Doh Sweet Shoppe Cake Mountain Playset on Christmas morning, using the enclosed clear plastic Play-Doh extruder to decorate their pretend cake with pretend frosting.
And then your busybody mother-in-law comes to visit and jumps to the conclusion that your kids are holding a penis-shaped sex toy.
If only this were fiction. Sadly, it's a true story, and it's prompted soccer-moms-with-secretly-dirty-minds everywhere to complain to Play-Doh about a toy that their kids have never noticed anything strange about. Here's what it looks like.

After complaints started to snowball on Play-Doh's Facebook page (many of which have since been deleted), Hasbro has responded with a Facebook post of its own.
As you can see, Hasbro has promised to replace the offending extruder with another that won't set aflame the loins of innocent youngsters. Owners of the Sweet Shoppe Cake Mountain Playset waiting for their replacement extruder are encouraged to breathe into a paper bag until it arrives.
