Can't talk I'm in a Tube tunnel

Metro's top headline for a novel Xmas Present

How to make this post without attracting a lot of dodgy people through search engines? Well. My eye was cetainly caught by the picture and headline in Metro last week. "I can't talk, I'm in a tunnel" is a very common phrase that you hear just before people are about to go underground when they're on their mobile phones on the London Underground.

Metro are suggesting that the mobile phone pictured below will give a whole new meaning to that phrase. Now you can text message your partner and give them much more than a smiley face message if they happen to be somewhere where they can receive a signal.

Metro article - Text operated vibrator

Metro claim that The Toy will prove to be "this year's hottest adult Christmas gift".... "The 21st century Casanova can send 7,200 variations from one text message"

Designer George Pilkington said "I made the product because I wanted to interact with my girlfriend wherever she was. The aim is to make people smile more and have better relationships ......and make the world a better place."

I love The Toy's website (not neccessarily safe for the office) - with its message to the ladies:

"Imagine a dreary Monday morning Work as usual, then you remember The Toy... we have The Toy!"

I'll leave you to explore as you wish. Happy Monday!
