The Snowball Slingshot May Just Be One Of The Biggest Gimmicks I’ve Ever Seen

Picture 22Hammacher: This is the snowball-hurling slingshot that brings snowball battles into the 21st century. A baseball-sized snowball is placed into the slingshot’s muzzle, drawn back, and fired at opposing forces, helping to facilitate their hasty withdrawal or surrender. The distance a snowball travels depends on the force applied to the medical-grade elastic tubing, allowing children to engage in close-range confrontations. Made of durable, polypropylene/styrene-based plastic that withstands the rigors of winter play. Includes target for practicing accuracy. Ages 8 and up.

 

Did I mention it fires at 35 MPH and up to 100 yards?! No? That’s because I completely just made that up. Pointless if you ask me. I have no idea what the mechanics of this thing are but what happened to just packing snow in your hands and throwing it? Especially when you have a deadly accurate howitzer arm like myself? I’m sorry that I don’t want to pack a snowball and load it like a Civil War musket with a rubber band lever and shit. Save it for the rookies. Besides, it’s 2013 and post Global Warming…it doesn’t snow anymore.
