Great Moments in Marketing Claims

From the Pleo description at Amazon:

"This prehistoric pet interacts and behaves like a one-week-old dinosaur."

Uh, right.  Based on substantial observational data, I am sure.  More correct statement:  "This toy behaves just like the baby dinosaurs you saw that were so cute in that Spielberg movie."

We haven't had a chance to observe the latest toys yet, but there are at least two guys in my department that may still remember the dinosaurs.
