Death of a Furby

ladydyani brings on teh funny again.

When my daughter was three, we somehow managed to beat the other people away and get her a Furby for Christmas. (Remember how popular those were? And how hard they were to find?)

She opens it Christmas morning, and is absolutely delighted. After presents are finished, I'm in the kitchen, cleaning up the breakfast dishes. She's taking Furby around and showing him the house. I hear "This is the living room." Step, step, step. "This is the kitchen." Step, step, step. "This is the bathroom." Pause. "Go potty." SPLASH!

She dropped poor Furby in the toilet. I suppose dropped is the wrong word. Shoved would be more appropriate.

After a painstaking drying, he did manage to work again, but for the rest of his life, he would randomly blurt out odd sounds every once in a while.

Poor Furby.

The context has been savaged by a small child

I've always said that Furbies were evil anyway. Perhaps it deserved to be shoved into the toilet.

They're gremlins in disguise. I don't know why no one else has noticed.

I see the similarity. Really I do. My friend had one and she swore it occassionally would say, "Death comes in your dreams," or something like that. Made me never want to get one.

If they are, then shoving them in the toilet is a BIG mistake.

Great, now I'm even more scared and paranoid of them.

Don't feed them after midnight! D:

No, Gizmo only becomes a gremlin if he eats after midnight. He's a mogwai!

Whywhywhywhy do I know this. Why.

-answers self-

Because I have the first one and the sequel and I periodically watched them when I was 10! Yay!
