Simpsons Homer Message Mate has to be one of the most annoying
gadgets I have ever seen. Basically you sit Homer and his
sofa on top of your TV and every time you press a button (I
said every time) on your remote control he blurts out one
of a number of recorded wise-cracks.
was fun for around 2 minutes and then I started to get a little
ticked off with it. Sure Homer is funny but when he interupts
your TV viewing everytime you alter the volume or change the
channel it can be very frustrating.
an also record a message for anyone else in your house to
pick up (basically a replacement for a written note which
you could stick to the TV).
fans will lap this up - and to be fair it's quiet novel for
a short time. It's just so damned annoying!
