Not For Everyone

I would imagine that this stupid voice activated alarm clock might not work so well in households where English is not exactly the predominant language, like, say, a Greek household.



8:00 a.m. - (alarm clock beeps)

YANNI: Skasmos! (shut up)

beep beep beep beep...

Ah, sheet. I forget, you have to say in the Englishes. Ahm... how you say... Please shat ap?

beep beep beep beep...

Quiets plees?...

beep beep beep beep...

SHATAP!

beep beep beep beep...

(gets up, yanks cord out of wall)

Salamabitz, I go back en slep. (Son of a bitch. I'm going back to sleep)

Speak N SetTM Programmable Clock is a touch activated, voice automated clock that is programmed by speaking commands. Simply say "Time" to hear the time, "Set Time" to set the clock, "Alarm" to find when the alarm will sound, "Set Alarm" to set the alarm (three different sounds), "alarm off" to deactivate the alarm. Requires 3 AAA batteries, not included. Plastic. $39.98

How funny - you make an excellent point. Not the thing for people with any sort of accent.
