Talking condiment bottle

Reminds you ...

Some table sauces have a tendency to separate; it is necessary to shake the bottle before use.

Failure to do so results in an unwanted deluge of a vinegar-like fluid onto the plate or foodstuff.

Thus, BorgCo are designing a sauce bottle with a small speech synthesis unit in the base.

When the bottle is picked up, it says "Shake me, please !" in a cheery - if somewhat tinny - voice, reminding the user to shake it before use.

That is all.

       If you're going to go to all that trouble, why not add a stirrer or vibration unit instead, that activates on pick-up? Or is that not ENOUGH agitation?

       The initial design did impart substantially more agitation to the contents. However, following initial testing of the prototype, and the subsequent cleanup, we have been advised by our Product Liability Specialists (Messrs. Buchanan, Buchanan, Nixon, Moriarty and Capone) that most consumers prefer their sauce bottle to still be in reach after shaking, i.e. not in a geostationary orbit.   

       The revised design, a miserable and highly unsatisfactory compromise, is an attempt to balance functionality, cost, and an acceptably low level of lethality and collateral damage.

       Can it be cleaned up and used for massage purposes after it's empty?

       I like it. Could be baked using the mechanism from one of those record your own greeting cards.

       Like that, but with a really basic mask-programmed chip with the same simple, bland, trite phrase repeated over and over every time*, it could be even cheaper.   

       *It could be called the "Joe Biden" device.

       //Some table sauces// Which ones? The only two suaces that are ever on my table are Red (Heinz Ketchup) and Brown (HP Sauce) I'm sure there is some sugar saturated American muck as well, but the type of tasteless swill that passes for food there needs all the help it can get to make anyone eat it. So what are these other table sauces 8th? Show and tell mucker.

       You should try some, it's awesome.

       Split happens.

       Heinz Ketchup is from what nation, precisely? (hint: it starts with 'A').   

       Would the bottle emit self-satisfied a 'Whrrr... Thank You!' after it was done being shaken?   

       Even this boring midwestener in pedestrian Detroit where we are snowed in for the moment have Gochujang sauce, teryaki glaze, a few varieties of dijon, horseradish, sundried tomatoes in garlic oil, chipotle, sriracha, cherry salsa, chimchurri, A1, safron oil, cilantro and lime...

       The shaking could also charge the battery for the talky bit.

       [8th] drinks his tomato sauce, "shaken, not stirred".   

       Figures. Delusions of James Bondage.

       Did somebody mention baseball?
kdf, Feb 21 2021
  

       No I don't think so.

       Ah, I thought perhaps the Borg had gone to sleep, hasn’t commented on anything for about a week.
