iParty no place for sex education, Quincy mom says
The Patriot Ledger rips the covers off a Quincy controversy: The local iParty sells party favors in the shape of male genitalia. The paper was tipped off by an outraged mother:
"Dora the Explorer balloons do not belong in the same store as dancing penises."
The Patriot Ledger dispatched a reporter, who confirmed that bachelorette-party accoutrements are, indeed, openly displayed on a shelf and noted that "at least one couple with a preteen daughter walked past the bachelorette shelf." The paper did not note if EMTs or counselors had to be dispatched to the scene to deal with the traumatized young lass.
The scandal reached all the way to City Hall, where the city clerk could not be reached for comment.
