News, but not the serious kind
Neat stuff I’ve found at techie taverns…
Blog Guy, have you been following that amazing story about the techie who left a prototype of the new iPhone in a bar?
Yeah, and I have to laugh that people are surprised at that.
I mean, I have four of those things myself. I live near a techie bar, and you’d be amazed at the crap I pick up when they get drunk. It’s a treasure trove of gadgets.
Here on the right is a photo of the prototype, to prove it.
Hang on, Blog Guy, there’s ketchup and all kinds of other slop on that phone.
Of course there is. You ever seen a techie eat?
What other amazing gadgets have you scored at the techie bar?
Just last week I got a copy of Windows ’95.
But it’s 2010, Blog Guy.
Yeah, but it still had the shrink wrap on it.
Okay. What else?
I recently found a prototype of the super-secret Radio Shack Lobster Dial Phone. I sent them a photo just to get the bidding started.
Wow! What did the Radio Shack people say?
They said I could just throw it in a dumpster, but I think they’re bluffing.
Back in February, I left the bar with a prototype of the U.S. Army’s new Mega-Death Laser.
REALLY! I bet that’s worth a FORTUNE!
I suppose, when I get it to work better. I need to practice.
What’s the most amazing thing you ever found at this techie bar of yours?
I guess the prototype of that new Bikini Beamer 3000. You know, it beams bikini-clad supermodels right into your home in minutes, as you can see in the top photo.
You carried THAT home from a tavern?
Okay, no, I had to rent a U-Haul to cart the damned thing home.
I would think you’d sound happier to have it. What’s wrong?
I can’t figure out how to turn it off. How would you like an efficiency apartment FULL of bikini-clad supermodels!
