So, the first lines of this, what links to this. Go take a look, I'll wait here.

So much of this merits comment.

Number a) the game and the toy from different manufacturers use the same noise, so dollars to donuts there's some licensable sound effects collection out there with "delighted baby noise number 7" in it.

2) Sure, Ms. Scary Angry News Reporter, if you prime people, and tell them that it says "Islam is the light" that's what they'll hear, after listening to it a couple of times, it sounds like "is salami delight" to me, but that's neither here nor there.

iii) Let's posit that the toys do, actually, factually, intentionally say "Islam is the light", in the US, you're surrounded by christian messages everywhere all the time. Is hearing one thing enough to counter all those other messages?

*) Why so scary and angry Ms. Scary Angry News Reporter? Because Islam is evil and going to steal your children?

Remember the good old days when evil dolls just came to life and murdered everyone?
