This is an offshoot of the original Liam & Janet blog. That blog has become overrun by Liam's inability to keep his mouth shut when something annoys him. The serious rants there seemed incongruous with the humor columns. The plan for the humor columns continues to be to post a new one every Friday, plus occasional extras when the mood strikes.

Blog Quickie

Here at the Institute of the Useless and Bizarre, we have come across a news story about an inventor who has developed a device he calls the "Wii-brator", described as an adult marital aid designed to interface with the popular Wii video game system.

Institute staff, in our neverending quest to avoid doing any work that could in any way benefit anyone in any context, immediately began coming up with ideas for other devices with so-called "open interfaces" which could be made to interface with marital aids.

So far, we have come up with the GPS ("You have reached your destination." "No, not quite, let's drive around the block one or two more times."), the TiVo ("This will not be scheduled as it conflicts with a higher priority show." "That's it, I'm calling the divorce lawyer on his cheating ass!") and of course, the iPhone ("There's an ap for that." "Does it come with an adaptor? That plug is way too small for my hole."(*)).

If you hear of any similarly bizarre items, please let us know.

Thank you.

P.S. Come to think of it, we here at the Institute apologize for the use of the word "Quickie" in the title. It was clearly inappropriate in this context.

(* This is sort of an inside joke. The headphone jack for most devices which include cellphone technology is actually smaller than the headphone jack for most portable audio devices, and I recently spent several hours in an airport trying to find an adapter so that I could make use of headphones from one device with another device.)

Watching people sniff around airports looking for a adaptors like a pack of wild dogs always makes me laugh because you eventually find a group of like 12 men in business suits sitting on the floor next to the only 2 plugs in the terminal. Fantastic.

I don't wear suits, but otherwise, I'm that guy. Sitting on the floor uncomfortably so that I can tap into airport power.

I'm adicted to my computer.

Thanks for stopping by!
