Kenner Sh#t Happens II T-Shirt
When Kenner was taken over by Tonka, a few fun loving employees had a humorous t-shirt created. The image on it showed a Tonka truck running over the long standing symbols of Kenner-Parker toys, the Goony Bird, the Playdoh boy and the Monopoly man; and it bore text saying "Sh@t Happens." Click here to see this shirt.

Well, the shirt you see here is kind of the sequel to that potty-mouthed original. It's even entitled "Sh@t Happens II: The Merger." It was made a few years after the first one, when Hasbro took over Kenner-Parker-Tonka in the early '90s. This time out, G.I. Joe flunky Sgt. Slaughter has commandeered the Tonka truck, placed an ugly G.I. Joe decal on its top, and proceeded to mow down the Playdoh boy and Monopoly man (Yo Joe!). Actually, our friend from Playdoh has already been rendered roadkill.

But far from accepting defeat, the Playdoh boy is seen to be lashing out at his oppressors. Check out the gesture he's making with his right hand. Never insult a man in a beret, unless you want to get the finger.
