The Finalists Are...



OK, so I've wanted an ipod for a while now. I was all set to order one, when I realized that, I have to come up with some oh-so-hip-yet-clever saying to have engraved upon it's backside.

Now, normally, I would not fret over this situation. I'd just crank up that ole' BS generator (it has a little knob, built-into the back, that makes it go to 11, provided you feed it properly-you know, give it plenty of Doritoes and tell it that it thinks too much. Oh, and it also like Bob Dylan and Buckaroo Banzai for entertainment.)

Being the geekette that I am almost, I googled and happened across this website. Yes, you read it right, there's an entire website devoted to funny ipod engravings. You should know by now that there's an entire universe of creative people with way too much time on their hands and so, as a result, there's a website devoted to just about everything under the sun, even ipod engravings. Some of these made me laugh so hard, I swear that I've ruptured my spleen. But, the entire web surf incident has left me feeling a bit, shall we say, inadequate. I'm getting writer's block. I just can't think of that oh-so-witty-and-clever saying to put on the back of my photo poddy.

So, being the resourceful wench that I am, I've decided to generate a list and solicit your votes. Yes, you. All three of you who routinely read my website can now vote and help me decide what ounce of crap I want to have engraved on the back of my prevention.

Here are the finalists:
"Beware: Loitering Music"
"It's like rearranging deck chairs on the titanic"
"If I shake it, does the music erase?"
"No sky No Earth, but sill music sounds"
"There are times when ingenuity is not enough"
"Einstein, James Bond, and Batman all rolled into one"
"Progress over Protocol"
"Remember, no matter where you go, there you are"
"Look Listen Embrace"
"Pod Pod Piddle, Click Me in the Middle"
"You can never get silence anywhere nowadays"
"I'm your way of running away without leaving home"
"I've grown small trying to be great"
"Lack of charisma can be fatal"
"Cures are hard to come by"
"Carol's Other White imac"
"In wisdom gathered over time I have found..."
"My favorite thing is to go where I've never been"
"Just advertising departments with leather pants"
"Stare. Pry. Listen. Eavesdrop"
"I see no reason for recording the obvious"
"All this and I'm only a torso"
"I'm so screwed and nobody left $20 at my bedside"

Please either leave your comments at this website with your selection or email me if you please with your vote.

Until next time...

Sorry I posted my comment twice, it was not my fault. The internet made me do it and I refuse to take responsibility. I can't help it if the WorldWideWeb had a fatal error right when I tried to post.....(but, I'm still sorry, ok?)

I always liked the simple "Demo Unit: Do not remove from Apple Store".

Alas, the original web site you linked to is toast. (Actually taken over by a domain squatter ...)
