Hand Phone

Some friends and I were discussing Hand Phones the other day. You know, you're telling a story about how you were on the phone with so-and-so and inevitably, your hand goes up to your face, pinky and thumb jutting out, pantomiming the invisible phone?

Why do we do this?

First of all, I've never seen any phone shaped that bizarrely and secondly... well, there is no second point. But I do think it would be really cool to come out with a phone that looks like a hand. I would totally buy one. But then again, after watching Juno I totally want a hamburger phone, too, if for no other reason that to be able to say things like, "Nothin'... oh, just talkin' on m'hamburger phone here." That would rock dome.

So anyway, guess what I happened upon, out there in the vastness of the worldwide interwebs?


Wired blog calls it, "Possibly the Worst Cellphone Concept Ever". I call it, "Possibly... No... No... ABSOLUTELY and IRREFUTABLY the Awesomest Cellphone Concept Ever!"

Actually, if I'm being truthful, this next one has been my favorite for a long time and I've always had the itch to buy one:

I can imagine the looks I would get strolling through the mall, talking on one of these retro handsets, while the actual cell phone is cleverly concealed in my purse. Genius!

Here are a few other gems I came across:

You, too, can be Zach Morris.

The only thing better than talking on a hamburger is talking on a banana. 100% fact.

Wow. Really? Because sticking your finger in your other ear to keep the noise out... yeah, that would look really ridiculous, right?
