In What World Are Grenades Harmless?

The Immaculate Consumption

From handguns to rifles to razors, and now army hand grenades, was nothing off limits back then? This ad from Honor House Products Corp. was selling exact replicas of “exploding” army hand grenades for only one dollar, and were even said to work just like the ones the army used during battle yet also saying “they are completely harmless.” If you purchased one, the instructions were simple. Pull the pin, wait at least four seconds, throw the grenade (the most important one!) and “watch the fun!” as the grenade explodes. It even had a 10-day trial with a money-back guarantee! Talk about a sales pitch that won’t take no for an answer. Apparently it will take people dying though.
