It sounds like "buh buh buh BUH DU" to me, but whatever gets your rage on, I guess.

No, YOU heard "fark you", and you had to try pretty hard to do it. Everyone else hears "horrible screeching laughter fabu!"

Yeah, if you do hear "fark you" from that gibberish, it's because the screeching headline that announces "FURBY SAYS fark YOU"

Wait till they find out you can put death metal tapes in a Teddy Ruxpin.

I heard close to this. Probably thanks to the headline.

I heard a command to follow Satan.

Since this Furby and my neighbor's dog are in agreement, I should look into this.

I once found a Furby that was dying.  Its battery was really low and its eye movements were sluggish and its voice was drawn out and really slow.  It was actually kind of sad and depressing.  So, I left it on the front porch, thinking it belonged to one of the kids in the neighborhood.  And it was!  The next day there was a note thanking me for finding their pet.  I hope the kid was not as traumatized as I was at a dying Furby.

Or, God forbid, a tape recording of a porn.

Also,

Sigh.  The thing has a voice processor that probably cost less than 1-cent to make and is a piece of garbage.  It is expected that some of what it says will not sound like it is intended.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but don't Furbies "learn" to repeat things that they hear frequently?

Old myth/sales tactic.  The furby couldn't communicate, really.  It simply had a "vocabulary" that would unlock over time.  A sensor made it jabber more near other furbies, but that's it.  No data transfer.

No, she just looks like that guy in a short skirt. Drag involves make-up.

Yes...yes they do.  My oldest daughter bought me one as a gag b-day gift.  A  week later the farking little critter started into it's *swear mode*.  Funny as hell.  It still sits on top of one of my ham radios.  It still cusses ...*have to remember to shut it off before I key up and talk to someone* LOL

Yep. A fake photo-op if ever I heard one

And odds are those kids have already heard far worse words

It's a myth I said!  Furbies do not learn.  They're programmed with a time-delay vocabulary.  They already "know" all the words they'll ever use.

They're missing a bet, here.  I would totally buy a Furby that said 'fark you'.
 
2014-06-26 12:39:32 AM  
Even Furby hates your ugly ass kids. Time to consider a foster home, or leaving them with daddy and "going out to get some cigarettes" *wink wink*

They'd simply love the evil things I could do with a Teddy Ruckspin.

Rhianna on the t-shirt I think...great role model for little girls mom-dude..
 
2014-06-26 01:25:56 AM  
Well, to be honest, your kids probably need to get told "fark you" more often.

You, too.

/fark you
 
2014-06-26 01:33:24 AM  
It doesn't sound anything like "fark you".

I'm surprised all the toys aren't saying it.

Urban legend. Teddy Ruxpin used proprietary multichannel data/audio tapes that synchronized his facial expressions with the audio. Most album audio tapes wouldn't work, and some wouldn't even fit.

What if it gets something stuck in its teeth, like a caraway seed?
