INFINITY AND BEYOND!
A raid into my flatmate's room brings two strange items:
Mr T in Your Pocket is a keyring gadget with six buttons playing the following Mr T 'catchphrases':
1 First name, Mister. Middle name, Period. Last name, T!
2 Quit your gibber-gabber!
3 Don't make me mad -rrrrrrr!
4 Shut up, fool!
5 Don't gimme no back-talk, sucka!
6 I pity the fool!
And the Bagpuss alarm clock plays the following wake-up message:
(Long yawn and a groan) Ooh, it's time to wake up. And when Bagpuss wakes up, all his friends wake up too. So it's time for you to wake up as well! You saggy, old, baggy, old cloth person. It's time to wake up!
Apparently, my flatmate bought this clock on ebay from a man who said it belonged to his young daughter who loved it, but it was driving him mad.
A pull-string, talking Bart Simpson doll from the early 90s uttered the following phrases:
1 Don't have a cow, man!
2 Aye, carumba!
3 Au contraire, mon frere!
4 No way, man!
5 Whoa, mama!
6 Kids in TV land, you're being duped!
The Action Man Talking Commander, first made in the late 1960s said the following when you pulled the string in his chest:
1 This is your commander speaking
2 Action Man patrol, fall in!
3 Enemy Aircraft! Action Stations!
4 Enemy in sight, range 1000
5 Volunteer needed for a special mission
6 Mortar attack, dig in
7 Hold your fire until I give the order
8 Commander to base, request support fire
