Idle Thoughts Department : Seeing a mother pop a dummy into her baby's mouth I visualised a thermometer inside a dummy with maybe a read-out in the handle.

Two out of three babies agree: Bwaaaaaah. [jutta, Aug 21 2000]


       Thanks - shows how out of touch one can get. I should have 'spit the dummy' before I got overheated.

       jutta.... the first story on that link is too a Recall of the stated product!!!

       <blinks> Dummy? <has mental image of a baby sucking on Charlie McCarthy, until other mentions of 'pacifiers' explains...>

       CasaLoco, "that link" is a search for any webpage in google's store that has the words "pacifier" and "thermometer" in it. Its results change over time. Since there are many products that are pacifier thermometers (there is no "stated product"), and since it's difficult to build child-proof things, some of them may be recalled; some of the recall notices may be picked up by google. The recall on any specific product doesn't change the fact that this is a well-established genre.

       As this appears to be baked, should it not be [m-f-d]?

       ph: Apparently we're not deleting all baked ideas; we leave them as warnings to future bakers, which is cheaper and less messy than crucifying them upside down and posting them on city outskirts.

       But not NEARLY as much fun.
