Aerosmith bassist Tom Hamilton launched a new line of beanie babies but these toys have names like Scrotilla the Hun and Robin Redbreasts. Hamilton has called the line "Obscenies" and it features obscene beanie babies.
Hamilton said: "They're like the equivalent to Beanie Babies, except they're dirty. I would tell people about it, and they'd be like, 'Well, when are you going to do it?' So I found somebody who had the connections to have plush toys made. There was some factory in China that was able to produce about 8,000 of these things."
"I love a good punch line, but that's doesn't mean it's going to be a commercial success. They're pretty hilarious, but I've never been able to find anybody who could figure out how to sell them. Maybe people will hear about it and sort of latch on to it. I think I'm just going to take them out on the road and throw them out to people when I'm onstage. My son got into the box of them and took some to school and got in trouble and then I got in trouble."
