This device, worn as a wristwatch, contains a dictionary of 1000's of funny quotations from the ht TV show The Simpsons. It also has a microphone and speech recognition firmware built in which listens for keywords or phrases in your conversations. When it detects an appropriate keyphrase, it vibrates and suggests a funny context-appropriate Simpsons quote on the screen. You can then glance down at your watch and if you decide its made a good choice, you can then say the quotation much to the delight of your companions. For instance, if someone asks you, "Do you have any fruit?" the watch might reccommend, "This has purple in it. Purple is a fruit." or if the subject of nuclear power comes up, the watch might suggest, "Nu-cue-lar. It's pronounced Nu-cue-lar." Makes a great gift!

       And here I am using Google like a sucker.

       Woah, I didn't know Waugs hates this idea. I guess that makes this two pluses. But I only have one. So I guess I shall give it one based on the idea and not 'cause of Waugs. Buahhahahaha!

       This is cheating. Worst idea EVER.

       Too harsh, Detly, but I agree that handing over the power of random Simpsons quotes to the ignorant masses is a horrifying concept. Mmmmm! Fishbone!

       How about a flanders-only version for the christian community? But would the watch screen be big enough-a-doodly-diddly?

       Detly wasn't being too harsh, it was another Simpson's quote.   

       Nother fishbone for DeathNinja.   

       Ha! Ha!

       This is defintely half-baked. Not in the sense of it existing as an idea here - but because the people likely to use Simpsons quotes will have seen the shows...many, many times and generally quote the Simpsons all the time anyway.   

       Ye noodle airmed choir boy!

       [DrBob] For shame :P
As long as [DN] understood.
Detly, Aug 17 2003
  

       Great idea... although borderline dorky...
JimmyPiper, Aug 17 2003
  

       Borderline? Like, shooting someone for looking at you cock-eyed is borderline neurotic?
