When Playmobil Goes Bad

At some point over the last several gift-giving holidays, a new Playmobil set surfaced: one "hunting" themed (or creepy peeping tom, I suppose), complete with binoculars, gun, cell phone, and jeep with trailer. In a way, it's very reminiscent of the town I went to High School in. But my therapist says I'm getting good at dealing with those memories.

After a little playing with the new set by himself, Older Son demanded I get into the thick of things and play along, on the condition that I get my own people and vehicle. So I grabbed the farmer, the farmer's wife (or female farmer, if you will), and the tractor. But then things quickly took a turn for the weird.

The farmer's wife took a shine to the hunter and took him up on the offer to "check out the Jeep, man":


You can't tell here, but the farmer is clearly heartbroken:

But then, and I swear I am not making this up, Older Son proclaims that the farmer needs a "new wife".
"Hi Farmer! New in town? Don't think I've seen you around any of the raves."

Call it a moment of weakness. Call it a latent deviant lifestyle. But the farmer and disco-boy hit it off.

And the rest, as they say, is history:
"Tell me again about this farm?"

"I love your Jeep. Got any AC/DC?"

huh. I dated a guy in high school who had a Jeep. When we broke up he kind of stalked me for a bit. I bet those binoculars would have come in handy for him.

The pictures are awesome. I'm concerned, however, about what the neighbouring farmers will say about the farmer and the club kid.

I love the raver-farmer combo. You don't see a lot of that around here. As a matter of fact, I don't think I've met any farmers with boy toys.
