Possibly the World's Most Annoying Toy



video

Bruce thinks it's really funny to give other people's children annoying, noise making toys. Whoever got our children this one takes the cake, I think. Not only does it make noise unbidden, but it also parrots whatever noises it hears. It mocks you by saying everything you say back at you, but in a slightly higher pitch. This produces the most wonderfully annoying affect in that Justice feels compelled to scream at the top of his lungs when ever this thing is around. And people, don't say that "at least the batteries will eventually run out." My children have long ago figured out how to replace batteries in their toys by themselves.

I recall a time when I was particularly grouchy with my children for not cleaning up their messes. This was one of those times when you cringe at the thought of a neighbor being outside and overhearing your insanity. I yelled "Clean up your Crap!!" Mark was holding that dumb parrot thing, which yelled back "Clean up your Crap!! Clean up your Crap!!" I just love hearing exactly how mad I sound. (I know, I know, another potty word, I am so going to the bad place!)

I wouldn't be surprised at all if Bruce finds one of these to give to one of our relatives' children for their next birthday. Whoever did this one deserves an award or something. You got us good that time!

I think Danielle had one of these before. I know they have been around forever. I never found them that annoying, but Danielle was the youngest (and quietest) of us all.

In a garbage can far, far away from my house so it never, ever could return again. My mother is by far the largest contributor of annoying, loud junk in my home. I don't think she would have ever let us have one of that kind of toys, but somehow for grandchildren, it's fun.

i do believe that was in retaliation...wait, i'm getting mixed up. was the saxephone (sp??) in retaliation to the ponies? or the other way around? at any rate, i KNOW i got the short end of the stick if the sax came second because i KNOW i wasn't married to john yet for the ponies. if it was the other way around, then you deserved it, i HATED that sax. i still do. it still works.
