Topic: My New eyePhone
Message: Posted by: Patriot (Aug 25, 2007 06:48AM)
I perform as a comedy pseudo 1890's-era medicine showman and one of my favorite props is a wireless bright red candlestick phone with an extendable antenna that I refer to as my "Cell Phone" for comedy call routines.

My daughter came over to the house a few weeks ago showing off her new iPhone and playfully putting down my turn-of-the-century Blackberry. In the spirit of parental "Oh Yeah?!?", I went into my "playroom", jammed a rubber eyeball into the transmitter cone of the candlestick phone and came out showing off my own eyePhone. It got such a laugh that I've kept it in my show for the adults.

I've toyed with duct taping a dollar-store photo album and miniature phonograph to the phone (for my eyePics and eyeTunes) but felt it was overkill...the eye gets the laughs. Just thought I'd share.

Aye Jaye was selling EyePhones at the KidAbra conference last week! They were great! Also a HotPhone!
