Complaint: Toy Leaks Clue To Existence Of Boners

The Red Robin restaurant chain is taking action after a Twin Cities family won a bear with an ad for Viagra at one of its restaurants.

Joe Kelner, 11, won a bear while playing the claw machine at the Red Robin in Shoreview.

Joe's parents thought it was inappropriate and complained to restaurant employees.

"It's important for parents to know that there are maybe inappropriate toys in these vending machines that you think are safe," Lori Kelner said.

Red Robin says the bears were supplied by a local vendor from New York as part of a Nascar package promoting its sponsors.

The company said they are removing the bears from all its restaurants.

If I were going back to elementary school in six weeks, I wouldn't want to be famous for owning Viagra Bear. Rest in peace, Joe Kelner, 11.
