It's like, you know, a gift idea

I saw an article about the Keyboard for Blondes (it's a British product, hence the "e") yesterday and knew, right then and there, I had to get the word out about it in time for your Christmas shopping.

From the MSN article about this special keyboard for that special blond(e) in your life:

"The all-pink keyboard swaps out standard keys with funnier, dumber key names. The backspace key now says "Oops!" and the entire row of function keys spells out USELESS KEYS. Hit the "$" sign and you get the sound of a cash register clinking."

J, this could be the perfect present for a certain Robot, it even uses the useless "e" just like she does. Maybe you could take up an office collection?

I'm not going to list all of them, but the Web site has a Top 10 list of 13 reasons to buy the Keyboard for Blondes, including:

10. You have to use a keyboard. Why not get the best one! [FD-Fer sure! Like totally!]
7. Matches your lipstick. [Always an important consideration in an electronics purchase]
6. Excuse for a cute guy in the office to talk with you. [Not unless you're holding it between your thighs...]
3. Angelina Jolie adopting one. [Yeah, to cave in someone's skull as a world-class assassin in her next movie]
1. Bruce Wayne has one in batcave. (Pink goes perfectly with black.. Draw no lifestyle conclusions.) [He did spend some time "walking the earth" and maybe he "discovered" something about himself along the path]
1. A very important and glamorous thing to have. [Because that's exactly what we're looking for in the office.]
1. Better looking than some co-workers. [OK, they may have a point here.]
1. Use as barter at a gas station. [Just not below the Mason-Dixon Line.]

Ya know, I was thinking about how I could mock this some more, but I think my work here is done...Except to say I know exactly who I'd get this for. How 'bout you?

Call me crazy, but I love this as a gift idea for any blonde (and yes I pretentiously prefer it spelled with an "e") with a sense of humor.

Oh, it matches my phone!

Ref - Perhaps for LBTB? Kidding. Oh, and I just realized I didn't have you in my blogroll. How shameful of me. The situation has been fixed.

Lemmy - While we wouldn't have to worry about you losing your phone if you placed it on this keyboard, there are some in the target audience who might not be as swift.

Uhhh is it bad if I want one for me? ;)

f.B said...

this keyboard is wireless, right? the person i'd give it to wouldn't have to worry about confusing, trip-inducing cords or anything, right?

FoggyDew said...

Doug - yes. Don't even joke like that.

f.B. - I dunno, did you go to the Web site and look? But if it were it would eliminate the problems your "friend" is having dealing with "her" keyboard.

That doesn't go with my winter wardrobe.

LiLu - Of course not, it's not plaid.
