Do Not Taunt Happy Fun Ball

Whether you're a nostalgic product liability attorney or a fallen elf trying to recall when things all went so wrong, Radar magazine's "Pray for Coal" list of the ten most dangerous playthings of all time shouldn't be missed. Lawn darts topped the list, of course, but there are some real gems further down. Consider the U-238 Atomic Energy Lab, which contained actual radioactive material, or the Johnny Reb Cannon, which fired hard projectiles as far as 35 feet (actual sales slogan: "We'll all be gay when Johnny comes marching home!").
