Do I Make You Horny Baby, Do I?

ATLANTA (Reuters- June) - A Georgia woman said Tuesday that she filed an obscenity complaint against the Toys R Us retail chain after her 11-year-old son picked up an ``Austin Powers'' doll that asked, "Do I make you horny baby, do I?"

Tamatha Brannon of the Atlanta suburb of East Point said that she had to explain the meaning of the word ``horny'' to her son, Marvin, after he picked up the talking doll at a Toys R Us store in nearby Morrow, Ga. He said "What does horny mean?" Brannon said. Brannon said she was so offended that she bought both of the toys on the shelf and turned one over to Morrow police. Police could not immediately be reached for comment.

The sentence "Do I make you horny baby, do I?" is written on the outside of the package of the "Ultra 'Cool' Action Figure," which has a voice chip that repeats the line from the spy spoof movie "Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me," starring Mike Myers. A company spokesman said the retailer believed the Morrow store was stocking a "parental guidance" version that instead asks "Would you fancy a shag?"
