There is a factory in Northern Minnesota which makes the Tickle Me Elmo Toys. The toy laughs when you tickle it under the arms.
Well, Lena is hired at The Tickle Me Elmo factory and she reports for her first day promptly at 8:00 AM..

The next day at 8:45 AM there is a knock at the Personnel Manager's door.

The Foreman throws open the door and begins to rant about the new employee.

He complains that she is incredibly slow and the whole line is backing up, putting the entire production line behind schedule.

The Personnel Manager decides he should see this for himself, so the 2 men march down to the factory floor.

When they get there the line is so backed up that there are Tickle Me Elmo's all over the factory floor and they're really beginning to pile up.

At the end of the line stood Lena surrounded by mountains of Tickle Me Elmo's.

She had a roll of plush red fabric and a huge bag of small marbles.

The 2 men watched in amazement as she cut a little piece of fabric, wrapped it around two marbles and began to carefully sew the little package between Elmo's legs.

The Personnel Manager burst into laughter..

After several minutes of hysterics he pulled himself together and approached Lena.

'I'm sorry,' he said to her, barely able to keep a straight face, 'but I think you misunderstood the instructions I gave you yesterday...'

'Your job is to give Elmo two test tickles.

LOL


I used to work in the "warehouse" of a retail store, and I can remember when we got the first Tickle Me Elmos in. This was right before the blew up, and we were all amazed at how weird (and freakin' annoying) these things were. They would start the laughing, vibrating thing with the least disturbance, which was not good on a relatively quiet stock floor.

I'd prefer noisy toys as opposed to noisy kids. You can always take the batteries out of the toys. I've yet to find the battery slot on a kid.

eh Tickle Me Elmo wasn't so bad... Furby's were the worst. So freaking annoying. I remember walking into my basement a year or two ago and and old Furby was down there and randomly lit up and started talking and it was pitch black and I very nearly soiled myself.

LOL.

my brother used to have this fisher price locomotive he could sit on and ride around the house.. and it used to make the most annoying train noises, at the most annoying times. He delighted in hiding it somewhere, with a heavy book on the button, so it would drive my mother insane.. and the batteries seemed to never run out.

Annoying toys- anyone ever seen the fly swatter that yells "GOTCHA" everytime it moves? And when the batteries start to fade it moans "GOOOTTCHAA" at completely random times. Ya, it finally hit the trash last month. Just too creepy to be sitting at home alone and suddenly out of the closet a low, drawn-out "GOTCHA" starts up.

And Ozy- I agree Furby's are weird, weird critters.

They record ambient noise. Like top secret conversations...

Cary Sedai

hehehe, now did they ban them right away or was there some sort of furby misshap?

Combination of both...gov't takes security very seriously and the potential with Furbys was noticed very quickly. Nothing electronic is allowed in secure area usually. most definitely nothing that can record or transmit...even radios usually have to be inspected.

But even funnier, that's on Skippy's List.

I had to google Skippy's List. This is hilarious! Especially:

33. Not allowed to chew gum at formation, unless I brought enough for everybody.

34. (Next day) Not allowed to chew gum at formation even if I *did* bring enough for everybody.

Well, maybe not especially, there are 213 and I'm just to 34. :D

LOL! Oh I neede this today. Here's some gems:

87. If the thought of something makes me giggle for longer than 15 seconds, I am to assume that I am not allowed to do it.

118. Burn pits for classified material are not revel fires - therefore it is wrong to dance naked around them.

I love Skippy's List. The only blog I read is his. It's hilarious. He adds different lists people send him, tells stories unrelated to the list and, occasionally, gives a backstory for some of the things on a list. For example... 2. My proper military title is “Specialist Schwarz” not “Princess Anastasia” (http://skippyslist.com/2007/10/29/pretty-pretty-princess/).

Brita -- you almost got me in trouble. This description made me snort lemonade all over my desk and giggle insanely for several moments -- just as my boss walked in. Bad Brita!

Ahhh, the story behind the Anastasia entry.


Just so you know, B, we sent this website to Tim's recruiter when he signed up.

I remember first reading it when I was in Bosnia...many of them being Bosnian specific made it extremely funny. Skippy was clearly an airborne guy so that made it even funnier.

4. Skippy was in (fill in the blank with some unit or other usually Intel related).

I was in Psyop, the whole time I was in the army. I have served in the following units.

- 1st PSYOP Battalion

- 6th PSYOP Battalion

- 9th PSYOP Battalion

And that’s it.
