Surely this is a joke???
Pleasures, a store in Huntsville that bills itself as a "one-stop romance shop," rolled out a promotion Tuesday that allows customers to trade in their guns for sex toys.
Owner Sherri Williams said she's hoping her shop's guns-for-toys promotion, which ends Feb. 15, will help down-on-their luck lovers who can't afford to buy a gift.
"You never know, maybe there will be someone who says, 'I've got this gun that I could go rob a liquor store with, or maybe I can get me a blowup doll for Valentine's Day, instead," Williams told AFP.
"I'm also in it to get guns off the street -- to take them out of the hands of people who would potentially do harm with them, and put them in the hands of collectors," Williams told AFP.
