We have an acquaintance my husband always calls Ferengi Fred, because my husband can be quite mean sometimes. Although, Fred really does look a bit like the Grand Nagus. He has the lobes, but I don't know how good he is with money...

Leni Qinan said...

I like the electronic male. There should be more like that one, including a remote control, hahahah.

Mr Farty said...

Laurie - The only Fred I know is really bad with money.

Leni - I'd be happy if the remote control for my TV included an intelligence option. There's one for brightness, but it turns out that's something else entirely.

Will said...

huh... that's pretty much how i feel about kindle too...

Mr Farty said...

Will - I've never seen Kindle. Maybe I'll keep it that way.

I like the BOLD one. You know, James T. Kirk is not really the one I dreamt about as a kid -- it was Spock, I admit. But I can't wait for the Star Trek movie to come out. I'll be there.

I just love it when you do this. It makes me have flashbacks and giggle randomly. Or that could just be from that time in high school... anyway.

Awesome.

Are those electronic males available for order?

Given the male propensity to hog the remote, if they DID come with a remote control, would they just play with themselves all day?

Deep packet inspection should be fun!

Mr Farty said...

Fragrant - Yeoman Rand was always the one for me, sigh.

Jelly - Glad you like it.

#Debi - Very droll.

John - I'll need to look into that.

Twit Pic is my total favorite.

As an aside, I'm totally concerned about the honey in the last picture. That's a whole lotta ribs. Somebody make her a sandwich. (I KNOW, I KNOW: NO ONE IS LOOKING AT HER RIBS.)

Mr Farty said...

Lesley - Not only that - she'll catch her death of cold running around like that!
