Something pornographic thisaway comes

Three years ago a friend gave me an aquapet. Aquapets are little critters in water-filled glass jars that talk to you and make cute sounds, made by a Japanese company called Wildplanet.

Here is what an aquapet looks like:

It's on my desk next to my computer.
A friendly little beastie in a vertical glass tube, on a base with two buttons that you push to "feed" it or "talk" to it.
Three years ago I thought it looked like a very cute alien test-tube baby. Which is strange. Cause only today I noticed that it looks like something else. Something you would buy at Good Vibrations on Polk Street. Something that Grant Patel would design. Now I think I should wrap it up and hide it in my underwear drawer. I can't throw it out, it's a gift.
What on earth were they thinking!!?!?!?!?

There's a piece about the toy here:

It seems that Baptists (those are Christians) do not like it. I guess I shouldn't be surprised that they thought it was obscene. Those people think everything is filthy.
