Bug in Your Ear

I thought it would be fun to fashion those Bluetooth wireless cell phone ear pieces into bug shapes.

You could have a spider or a giant ant, or a grasshopper or a roach, just to name a few. I’d pick the roach. How cool would that be to walk around with a roach in your ear and when a call came in it would pulsate with a blue light. Maybe the antenna could wave around, or the legs wiggle.

There you would be in Krogers picking out bananas that don’t contain tarantulas and right next to you this guy with a roach in his ear would start talking and the roach would be pulsating blue and wiggling for all it’s worth.

Now, what would be really cool would be for Chiquita Banana to make cell phones in the shape of tarantulas and have a promotional where shoppers would find them inside of bananas.

I’m a marketing genius. Madison Avenue, you can contact me at BR-549.

Uh, I'm thinkin' you need some time to adjust to retirement. Ease into, dude.

And don't even think of comin' near me with anything resembling a roach.

Kisses!

You could make it into the shape of an earwig, which would seem to make some sense except that you'd have everyone asking what the heck it was supposed to be. I mean, I know what an earwig looks like, but only as a drawing in the Encyclopaedia Britannica.

Oh, now Foo, that's just cruel. And I do know what an earwig looks like. They have those little pinchers on 'em. Creepy! Although the whole roach thing is pretty creepy too (did you know that roaches have two brains, one in the rear?! That has some marketing potential, I'm sure). I think Bill you're onto something big!

Wait. I thought you were supposed to be lounging and drinking cocktails.

Stop thinking, already. (But I do like the ideas...)

Seems like you're still in the Twilight Zone of the Outer Limits where resistance is futile.
Give us all a break and lighten up man.

Ha! I don't think most readers have any clue as to the origin of BR-549.

Always enjoy your blog.

I was thinking this would be a great idea until I realized folks would be taking off their shoes (phone optional) and beating RoachFone® users senseless, shouting "Kenneth, what is the frequency?!?"
