Funny that ABC is even reporting this, seeing as how they're owned by Disney.

Am I the only one that didn't hear "You're a slut even though I was listening for it?
 
2006-12-10 11:17:06 PM
Oh my god I want some of these to give as xmas presents.
 
2006-12-10 11:17:29 PM
That's one of the funnier things I've ever read, and then watched.
 
2006-12-10 11:17:33 PM
Don't ask me, I'm just a girl.
 
2006-12-10 11:17:38 PM
Watched the video. Heard three syllables repeating, but it didn't sound like "You're a slut." The mother must have a guilty conscience and her brain filled in the words.

No.

Do they sell a Belle doll that screams "You BEAST! You BEAST! You BEAST!" when you press the button?

Because I want a dozen of those things.
 
2006-12-10 11:19:47 PM
submitter: but push its button the wrong way ... may say 'You're a slut'"

just like a real life female friend!

"I ain't hear shiat!"
 
2006-12-10 11:21:03 PM
Sometimes we hear what we want to hear.
 
2006-12-10 11:21:34 PM
"You want thingamabobs? I've got TWENTY!"

/Explain *that* to your pwecious pwincess.
 
2006-12-10 11:26:19 PM
Well, you have to play the doll recording backwards.
There's also something in there about Satan's jizz, but I can't make it all out yet.
 
2006-12-10 11:27:08 PM
I hear "ees-bee-de" over and over and over

If you tilt your head and squint, it sort of sounds like 'you're a slut' I guess.
 
2006-12-10 11:28:07 PM
I thought it said, "You're so hung." Then again, it could be my own mind simply misinterpreting those garbled noises to reveal an inner truth about myself...
 
2006-12-10 11:28:32 PM
Chariset: I hear "ees-bee-de" over and over and over

It was more of a "diddly-beer-ass" to these ears.
Though I guess only sluts get pale ale enemas...

ya ya ya, and i got a finger in my chili fries the other day which I drank down with a can of coke that oddly enough had a mouse inside.


hate these I found the only broken one on the market stories.

/watched video
//all I heard was "kill more kittens"

Funny that ABC is even reporting this, seeing as how they're owned by Disney.

That surprises you? From TFA: "Sometimes, this type of controversy makes a toy all the more desirable," Oppenheim told the Mercury News. "The more quirky toys tend to be more attractive to adult collectors."

The LeChuck doll says, "Arrr! Math be hard!"
 
2006-12-11 12:43:32 AM
Reminds me of how we used to make the woman on our ROLM phones have an orgasm.

"You've dialed: 0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0"

bjex: Oooh, a Monkey-Island-quoting GURPS player? Where've you been all my life, stud?

Heard nothing when they were pressing it fast. When they played all the messages at the end, though, it seems two of the messages, in order, are:

"You're a wonderful friend"
"The sparkles are beautiful," with "the" spoken pretty softly.

So I suppose if it played "you're a..." followed by a press leading to "(the) spark-" with another press cutting off sparkles at the first syllable... well, maybe.

But still, pfft. Get over it, mom.

You think that's bad? My old VHS copy of the movie has a goddamn penis on the cover.

And yes, I realize that Snopes denies it's deliberate. But I just think the Disney people got to them.
 
2006-12-11 08:05:40 AM
She's pushing the button repeatedly before the phrase is finished. "You're a wond- You're a wond- You're a wond- You're a wond- You're a wonderful friend."

BULLSH*T.
 
2006-12-11 08:07:29 AM
She advised parents to test the "try me" buttons on toys before making a purchase.

This, at least, is good advice, although it's farking obvious. What idiot buys a toy with a dead battery or a crappy speaker?
 
2006-12-11 08:08:03 AM
Maybe the little girl is a slut.
 
2006-12-11 08:10:05 AM
The phrase is just something that the mom heard once and tries very hard to lock away in the deepest darkest part of her mind. pow right in the kisser pow right in the kisser pow right in the kisser pow right in the kisser pow right
 
2006-12-11 08:11:33 AM
Maybe mom is worried her little secret will get out.
 
2006-12-11 08:11:53 AM
I guess Ariel just knows something we don't.
 
2006-12-11 08:14:25 AM
I clearly heard, "euro sluck."
 
2006-12-11 08:17:26 AM
Was I the only one who got annoyed that the reporter kept typing both Arial and Ariel?
 
2006-12-11 08:17:38 AM
Speaking of the "Who wants to die? Elmo", who still has a link to that video with the sound.

Cuz that was the first thing to spring to mind here
 
2006-12-11 08:19:49 AM
"My spidey sense is tingling...anybody call for a web-slinger?"
 
2006-12-11 08:21:33 AM
sounds like the mom wants a free trip to disneyworld
 
2006-12-11 08:22:17 AM
And upon listening to the video, some mother's got a finger in her chili no doubt.
It's just a broken voicebox looping too soon. But I bet she sues Disney for mind-raping her angel.
As she buys her angel more Bratz Diamond's Suck Off Sluts for Christmas.

/looked for 5 mins for the Simpsons "spidey sense tingling", but too early for Google-fu
 
2006-12-11 08:22:30 AM
Maybe the daughter is just repeating what she heard coming from her parents' bedroom. This doll is just the scapegoat.
 
2006-12-11 08:22:48 AM
So, did it say "you're a slut" in Spanish? I'm gettin' the impression this is another one of those finger-in-the-chili things. Thats what mom gets for buying her kids Xmas off FleaBay.
 
2006-12-11 08:23:32 AM
There's a lot of mental illness out there folks.
 
2006-12-11 08:23:34 AM
lol - Thats too funny. I just bought that for my little girl for Christmas! I for one hope it does say that, just to get some of that sweet lawsuit action:)

"My name is Talky Tina ... and I'm going to kill you."
 
2006-12-11 08:25:24 AM
weazelbeater, that's the first thing that came to my mind, too...
 
2006-12-11 08:26:53 AM
audio probably not safe for work

/don't know how to make it 'pop' and don't have time to learn
//will accept short and plain instruction on how to do so
 
2006-12-11 08:28:32 AM
meh, I prefer "math is hard" talking Barbie.
 
2006-12-11 08:33:10 AM
That girl is a slut. I know. She loved me and left me, and she'll do the same to you.
 
2006-12-11 08:34:31 AM
cocaine is a helluva drug-
 
2006-12-11 08:35:07 AM
I didn't hear the doll say anything. None of that sounded like words to me.
