Don't like what you're hearing on the phone? Put the whammy on it! With 'single finger', 'never leave the ear' operation; Simply push the raised <This Sucks> button on the side and a small ring slides out. Insert your finger tip and move it around - in and out for vibrato, back and forth for wah-wah-waaahhh. Suddenly Muzak becomes entertaining, your nasally challenged coworker booms like James Earl Jones, and the boss seems far less intimidating - as a chipmunk.

       It's from an old game show; it was always a hoot to watch the cartoon figure march across the screen and blow up, eat, or mangle all of the contestants winnings.
