Grumpy Cat gets recalled; gets grumpier

Ganz, the plush toy company, recalls Grumpy Cat plush toys.

Just to show you that pretty much everything out there's trying to do you harm...

On the same day Toyota got slapped with a $1.2 billion fine from the Justice Department for how it handled that Prius unintended acceleration recall, Ganz, the plush toy manufacturer, has recalled three different models of its Grumpy Cat plushes (that's what they're called).

Two points:

1) The internet can help you out if you don't know what Grumpy Cat is.

2) Once that happens, you'll ask the same question I did: Who buys one of those things?
