Nerf War is Hell
I stumbled across this at a local Toys R Us. Granted, this is not an official Nerf product, but it made me wonder what we would have to look forward to next.
Seriously, we have already established (through official Nerf products, or “knock offs” like Air Zone) machine guns, automatic pistols, barrage weapons (those are the ones that fire more than one dart at once… real cool), bows and crossbows, semi-automatic weapons, sniper rifles, squad automatic weapons, along with swords, axes, hatchets, shields, and maces. What exactly are we to look forward to now that we have this escalation in the Nerf arms race? Will we see Nerf announce the release of the Nerf guided missile? Will Air Zone retaliate with their own version of the tow missile (which is more effective against Nerf armor than anything else)? Perhaps Hasbro is already working on a Nerf AEGIS system in anticipation of the Air Zone Tomahawk missile. Knowing it is only a matter of time before Nerf develops its own Titan Intercontinental Ballistic Missile. Where would that leave Air Zone, especially since Hasbro holds the license for Star Wars.
Albert Einstein once said that if the third world war is fought with nuclear weapons, the fourth world war would be fought with stone weapons. Does that same sentiment still hold for a Nerf world war? If it does, then I’m ready, I have an Air Zone blow gun.
