Nerf Poison

Pretend poison for play-cold-war

Initially this would be just a robustly-flavoured but not unpleasant soda/cordial (e.g. Ginger flavour). It would come in a caricature poison bottle ("ACME poison") and have an off-shade of green colour.

Later revisions might be able to induce harmless temporary physiological side-effects such as giving the consumer's skin a green hue and/or give off some noticeable odour/fragrance.

I think you'll agree that teaching kids that consuming brightly coloured liquids in bottles saying "poison" is cool and fun will do wonders for the gene pool!

       Darn, I thought this was going to be about poison you could add to Nerf ammo. I could use some poisoned paintballs, if they exist.

       Teaching kids not to believe everything they read, that there is such a thing as a joke, to have a sense of proportion, and generally to get real will certainly do wonders for civilization. [+]
