A boy and his BB gun

Art dominates reality.

This classic is about a boy who desperately wants a Daisy Red Rider BB gun with a compass and a sundial in the stock even though every adult within range tells him he'll shoot his eye out has a side story.

That model with the compass and the sundial doesn't exist, but under pressure, Daisy built the gun.... and then offered it later as a limited edition.

Is this hyperreality or what? The story is about intensity of desire amplified by advertising-- and then the story invades the real world. This entry was posted at Comments are welcome here or there. comment count unavailable comments so far on that entry.
