Mr. Clock Radio
This creepy looking entry from a now (mysteriously) defunct company, is actually really cool. With over 30 phrases to wake you or just to amuse you, this is sure to be a hit with anyone with a sense of humor. Thanks to a good friend of mine who gave me this as a Christmas present (thank you, Jim), I am proud to call Mr. Clock (or would that be Mr. Radio?) a member of two of my growing collections - robots and odd clocks. And this from someone who has no concept of, nor use for, man's time.
In addition to talking randomly and announcing the time, Mr. Radio is also an accomplished Fortune Teller. No, seriously. Ask him a question and, after consulting the Oracles, he will give you the appropriate response - as long as it is a 'yes' or 'no' question. And as if that weren't enough, there is even an AM/FM radio built in. When you elect to turn the radio on, Mr. Radio will let you know that doing so has hurt his feelings. Finally, there is even a jack to plug in an MP3 player or an iPod. Oh, and don't let me forget his gentle blue glowing night light mode.
