The Oozinator (Bukkakinator?)

Wow, I almost forgot about this little gem of internet video from a year or two ago.

I'm surprised that this thing is still on the market, and that Hasbro still has the description of it on their website.
"Just when they think you’re coming at ‘em with water, blast ‘em with a shot of icky bio-ooze! Shoot out globs of gooey bio-ooze and then drench ‘em with water!"

Leave it to Wikipedia to make it sound boring.
"Critics claim, that through innuendo, either purposely or innocently, the toy is an approximation of a sexual act portrayed in some pornographic movies, known as the money shot. Because of that innuendo, they believe the marketing and promotion of the toy may be reminiscent of, or subliminally promoting inappropriate sexual activity among children even though most prepubescent children cannot ejaculate."

You can still buy it at Amazon, but they've ruined all the fun and deleted all the original reviews, but thanks to the Consumerist and their digging through the google cache, we can relive those first few days of Oozinator glory.

Oh, and the Metafilter comments are perfect as well, down towards the bottom of the comments, wise MeFi user youarenothere thought to copy and paste a handful of the reviews from Amazon before they were deleted by the powers that be.
