Company Makes Gun Targets That Bleed And Look Like Your Ex Girlfriend
Sometimes, after a particularly bad break up, people need to cleanse themselves of everything that reminds them of their ex. Pictures? Burn 'em. OR, use thumbtacks to poke little holes in their glossy-finished face (not that I've done that). But, a company who prides themselves on helping people prepare for the Zombie Apocalypse has made it easier to get back at your ex, or at least an effigy of her, by making a shooting target named "The Ex". And it bleeds when you shoot it. I'm not kidding.
Now, people may not have ever found out anything about this ex girlfriend target, but the company who produces it, Zombie Industries, had a booth at the NRA's National Convention last week. They originally made news when they had a zombie target that looked a little bit too much like President Obama for people's liking and the NRA made them remove it from their booth at the convention.
The particular line of targets that "The Ex" belongs to is the "Bleeding Line", named as such because they actually bleed out some sort of synthetic blood when you shoot them. Great. They end up looking like this:
After all of the uproar from the masses, Zombie industries actually renamed the target "Alexa" (whatever, man), and they feature this disclaimer in the description of the target,
Zombie Industries realizes that the Zombie virus can affect any living creature regardless of race, gender, religion, ethnic background, or species. The Zombie virus does not discriminate and neither does Zombie Industries. We take preparation for the Zombie Apocalypse seriously, which is why we strive to have all groups of undead monsters represented in our product selection. In addition to the Ex Girlfriend Zombie, we currently sell 15 male zombies, 5 animal zombies & 2 aliens… to discriminate against Women by not having them represented in our product selection would be just plain sexist. All Zombie Industries’ products are fictitious characters... Zombie Industries is sorry if anyone takes offense to any of our products. But we also have a responsibility to our customers to provide the best possible products to help them prepare for the Zombie Apocalypse.
Someone should probably tell them that zombies aren't real.
Zombie Industries is right about one thing, though. They don't discriminate. They have several targets that are men, a few that are animals, a couple of aliens, and a creepy clown.
It doesn't help that the people reviewing the product on the Zombie Industries website seem to want to dress these things up like their former lovers and shoot them. Like Ralph (who apparently also goes by the name "Big Money"),
This Zombie B**** is awesome, reminds me of a girl I knew in High School.
And then there's Bryan,
I love that this target looks like Britney Spears and it bleeds when I shot it.
And then there's this guy,
The dark haired one looks like my b**** ex-wife, who I HATE! I can’t wait to shoot her face off for taking my s***.
Well... I mean... at least he's shooting at a target and not actually his ex-wife?
