Death of a Furby
ifeedformula wrote in metaquotes
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

Heh, my old Teddy Ruxpin had a malfunction and started leaking battery acid and was never the same after that. I kept him in the closet, and every once in a while, I would hear these devil noises, and I knew it was coming from TR.

It was kind of like Chucky. In bear form. And that made it even scarier, 'cause bears can be mean.

I still remember actively attempting to kill our Teddy Ruxpin.

Jesus, those things were evil.

My friend's daughter threw hers to the bottom of a creek.
As far as we know, it's still down there. WHERE IT BELONGS.

Oh, wow -- I had a friend once who was one of those people that sits there quiet forever and then will suddenly start telling these bizarre stories..

One time, a bunch of us were sitting around talking, and suddenly he begins: "So, a bunch of my friends and I decided we wanted to make a video of Teddy Ruxpin talking while he was catching on fire..."

Some of my friends who were just meeting him instantly thought he was the coolest guy ever.

I don't know what the hell happened to our Teddy Ruxpin, but his eyes kept popping out and the top jaw with his nose popped off. After that we didn't want to hear him tell stories anymore, but were afraid to throw him out.

My sister buried her Furby under a pile of clothes in the closet, and it still didn't shut up. In the middle of the night it would yell "Let's party!"

My friend insisted that her Teddy Ruxpin would wake her up by talking, but he didn't have any tape in his chamber at the time.

I myself had a talking baby doll ("I love you," "Mama, feed me," and "Let's play!" for the most part) and I let it get buried in the corner of my room one time. On top of my heater vent.

I was getting ready for bed one night when I heard "MAMA I LOVE YOuplay with *voice lowers* feeeeed meeeeee."

I threw it out the window.

Oh God. My mother almost got arrested because of a talking doll when I was a kid.

Mine would go "MAMAMA!" and cry. One time we were going..I dunno..somewhere and my mom got irritated with the damn thing and threw it in the trunk. She forgot it was in there and one day while I was at school, she went to go get gas. A policeman comes up to her and asks her to open her trunk. Somebody had made a complaint about a child locked in the trunk of her stupid hatchback. Mom goes "What child? My kids aren't in the trunk!". She opens it and goes "Oh."
I'm sure she was VERY embarrassed at that point.

Oh, gods above me, that old black and white Twilight Zone is the reason I can't watch movies with talking dolls in them.

... I laughed 'til I cried. At work. I hope you're happy.

I used to have a doll that I bought second-hand. It was one of a line in the 90's where each doll had a different expression. This one was probably supposed to be 'excited', but the previous owner had cut it's (bright red) hair really short, so it came across as 'manic' or 'demented'. My brother and I called her 'Little Baby Kills A Lot' and I kept her in my closet.

A few years later, I chopped the rest of her hair off, and she didnt look quite so crazy anymore.

*is beyond late* But I had to tell you, this made me laugh so hard I cried.

My cousin had a Teddy Ruxpin, but I had a My Buddy doll. Does anyone remember those? I was convinced (I was like four) that this doll was Chuckie. I forced my parents to hide it in the garage. Then mice ate off his nose, and I was afraid he would kill me in retaliation. I found out like two years ago, everyone who had a My Buddy doll thought it was Chuckie and was afraid of them.
My friend had a bear that used to talk. It freaked her roommate, so she took out the batteries. And it still talked! How I ask you. How?

I think everyone with a My Buddy doll burned it after Child's Play came out. There's no WAY Chucky wasn't modeled on those!
