Is it just me, or are these TED talks getting weird?

I'm pretty sure that's how you open a gateway to hell.

It took most kids very little time at all to realize Teddy would play ANY cassette, not just the inane story tapes provided.

Before long Teddy Ruxpin was merrily regaling us with Slayer's "Reign in Blood," his mechanical lips straining to catch up to the beat, a growing awareness dawning in his dead eyes.

I was half expecting a wall of screaming, burbling, babbling electronic wrecks endlessly bellowing racist slurs and imageboard memes while flames danced in the background and people sobbed offscreen.

In other words, the perfect real-life simulation of 4chan. You have disappointed me for the last time, Internet.

Get them to talk at once and drool blood then we'll talk about "nightmare fuel."

xanadian: The video on their website says T.E.D. takes "the emotional temperature of the Internet."

I'm wondering if they do that rectally...


Is it streaming 4chan?

Not nearly enough ranting, raging, frothing, and screams of "THE JEWS DID 9/11" along with a peppering of racial slurs.

I think the first music cassette I heard Teddy sing was Iron Maiden's Number of the Beast

I was surprised she just collected the condoms of her lovers and not their dicks....

If I had walked into that bedroom, I would slowly back out, and run for my car, praying to God that I made it to the door.

I put old comedy albums into mine. Lily Tomlin's phone company routine coming out of Teddy Ruxpin was profoundly amusing to me as a child.

bakarocket: Phoenix_M: I have a sibling who was the XXXXXXX director of Worlds of Wonder and was standing next to Don Kingsborough when Teddy was introduced to the world.

/I have a funny video of WOW employees in Japan drunk and being entertained by Japanese executives (wink)

//Thanks to cops killing kids playing laser tag the company died.

///sibling is still a Silicon Valley executive

Every one of those sentences was just a completely random thought that is unconnected to the sentence before it, right? Or am I going crazy?


I don't know that those are mutually exclusive, but no, everything in the post you quoted is connected - loosely. It's okay, I'll translate, since I speak fluent stoner. The poster was relating that his/her sibling used to work for the company which made Teddy Ruxpin, and that said sibling provided a funny video of employees of that company being entertained in an apparently salacious manner by Japanese executives. Then there is some sad rumination about the event which led to the demise of that company, which involved laser tag and police and killing, somehow (even I'm not very clear on that part). Then there is the detail that the sibling still works in the industry, though necessarily at a different company.

/doing my part
//you're welcome.

BronyMedic: I'm pretty sure that this is the breaking of the seals to the gates of hell invoked in Revelations.

This is more messed up than Amature BBW Norwegan Fart Fetish Porn.


Now you're getting into the realm of "we used to have a rugby song about that."

I got a Teddy Ruxpin for Christmas when I was 5, I think, and then I got his caterpillar friend for my birthday 3 weeks later. I think my Teddy only lasted a year before the eyes detached somehow and I was too scared to even look at it.
