What could be more fun than blowing up . . .
10 June 2014 | by (Jacksonville, FL) – See all my reviews

. . . Uncle Dennis? "Chris," alternately the godson or the nephew of "Uncle Dennis," wants to play James Bond, Jr. James Bond, a.k.a. Agent 007, is most famous for careening around public highways putting thousands in danger while looking for excuses to play Demolition Man. Planes, helicopters, volcanoes, entire islands, you name it--the bigger the object, the more Bond is hell-bent on destroying it. Any parent or guardian who would expose an impressionable child to James Bond is a Menace to Society, as A CHILD'S GUIDE TO BLOWING UP A MOTOR CAR from Ford Motors Corporation proves beyond the shadow of a doubt. Ford is most famous for patrolling its assembly lines with gun-toting goons under the direction of Harry "Mad Dog" Bennett (to prevent ANY communication between workers on the line) when its namesake founder was alive (and not hobnobbing with Hitler), and subsequently for exploding Firestone tires (old Mr. Firestone being BFFs with Henry Sr., back in the day, going so far as to cross-breed the clans). Certainly these are James' kind of folks, so who better to use James as a role model for the wee ones than Ford Motors?
