That IS truly horrible. I do think that good taste has gone out the window in our culture lately.

Reminds me of the American flag door mat I heard Wil Wheaton going on about a while back.

Dave Barry did a hilarious column on this very thing (with his 4-year-old daughter in the midst of all the birthday upheavel). The pinatas rarely break open with the initial wacks, so he painted this picture of this 4-year-old girl-frenzy wacking the total crap out of the thing with the parents standing back looking uncomfortable. As they well should.

I've never thought of it that way, but good point.
But now I want a Dubya pinata for _my_ birthday! I am so sick.

I agree with you completely--it always seemed like exactly the opposite of everything we teach our kids each day, and even though pinatas are a part of the kidlet's heritage, I still don't want one for his parties, and I cringe when it's part of someone else's.
