Seeing lotsa animated voice dolls these days, like WCW Hulk Hogans
and Macho Man Randy Savage dolls that spew out stuff like "oh, my arm!"
whenever the kid squeezes or rassles with the doll....well, this
new doll looks like Bill Gates and shouts out stuff like 'sorry, you
are out of virtual memory
for this application', and 'please re-boot me now'
You could even hook the doll up to your pee-cee game port and
it could laugh at you every time Windows2000 dumps on you
and loses your latest two hours of work and data....a guaranteed hit.
Martian Popping Thing
Mine sits on top of my PC and got squeezed in times of stress, until it popped one day (hence the name). The resemblance to a certain CEO is kinda amazing, especially when the eyes bug out. [rmutt, Mar 03 2000]
Plush Cthulhu Dolls
While we're on the subject... [cosma, Mar 03 2000]
A doll I made because I don't much like Mr. Gates or the Intel bunnies. Sadly, it's not got a voicebox. Yet. Muhuhaha! [tomierna, Mar 03 2000]
Villian, for now -- the verdict.
Cute, probably temporary, *FLASH* verdict [reensure, Mar 03 2000]
Plush Cthulhu, the second! [jutta, Mar 03 2000]

Description (displayed with the short name and URL.)
||The scope for 'Easter Eggs' in such a product is huge - after the right sequence of squeezes in the right areas (!), the doll would shout "OK, OK, I admit - Word sucks!" or "I feel so guilty, Paul Allen did all the hard work in the early days of Microsoft and I got all the money!".
||How about a Bill Gates voodoo doll? Use when blue screen of death becomes too much...
||Oooh! I could put this one next to my Larry Ellison, Jim Barksdale, Steve Case, Scott McNealy and Thomas Penfield Jackson voodoo dolls and watch him kick their asses.
