What's Tackier?

What's Tackier?

Have you ever been to the drug store just to pick up tampons, lip gloss or a tabloid magazine and run into one of these things? Billy The Singing Bass or Kung-Fu Hamster? Billy has been known to start singing "Take Me To The River" and "Don't Worry, Be Happy" simply when you walk near him, but the Kung-Fu Hamster will emit the disco classic "Kung-Fu Fighting" only if you push his button. I'm all for kitsch, but I would be embarrassed to own one of these things. What's tackier?

When those hamster things first appeared in stores I thought they were adorable.. I even had one! That got old REALLY quickly.

I was just going to write the same thing, too, computerdiva! My family members jokingly kept trying to regift two of those annoying fish to each other for a couple of years. One year we ended up with two. When no one was home I threw them away.

The bass is only tackier b/c it has to be displayed. The hampster is a cute little item to sit on your desk or something...I'd play with it if I saw it in someone's office :)

The kung fu hamster only because I used to have one of those singing fish when i was three. I would play it over and over again, and let me say it is extremely tacky and it now collects dust in my basement, but i still think it was a funny little thing. :fish:
