    Yes, it's a Furby. A co-worker came across a pair of these maddening creatures, and upon my request, brought one in to work. As annoyingly cute as these little guys are, I thought it might be fun to incorporate their insane babbling into a future music project. I'm susre by the time I'm done with it, the Furby's voice will be utterly unrecognizeable, but I will get some measure of joy out of knowing that somebody out there is grooving to a tune composed with the help of one of the most annoying toys in history.

    :D

    Yes. He's a little worse for wear; a co-worker found him, and I decided he'd be a great singer/rapper. I will be working with him for the next few days on some dope track. Yo.

    I spent a day screaming pizza at a furby and it never talked back. That furby is dead now.

  13. My cousin got a Furby to swear a lot in German.

    It was cool.
     
  14. I totally forgot it could talk back. I tried to get it to say swears.
