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 had one of those when I was little. The best part about it was taking it in the car. It would go "whoooa!" or "wheeee!" every two seconds and annoy the shit out of my mom.

That drove my mom crazy. My sister bought one when they first came out and she would make it 'fly' through the air. Furby would go "Whoooaaa! Wheeee!" and it was friggin hilarious.

Almost makes me want to go find one for myself. XD

Makes me wish I hadn't killed mine.

I was a sophomore in college at the time so I really don't know why I bought it in the first place.

My sister was a soph or a jr in hs I think when they came out. I think she bought it just because it was a hot toy at the time. Much like the reason I bought myself a Tamagotchi when they first came out. *L*
Damn thing got smashed though when I accidentally ran over it with the car. ;_;
