Meet the oPhone. Now, now. I understand that its shape and name might lead to some improper conclusions, so let’s be clear right up front. The “o” in this phone is all about odors. Smells. This phone sends smells. Read all about it here . . .

  1. Hysterical mash up, Piper!! Thanks for sharing responsibly 🙂 Great comic relief for a Friday. That oPhone would make a great gift, to someone you didnt like if you could program it with the nastiest smells ever!

    • Seriously. I would love to see one with “pig farm,” “burnt hair,” and “middle school boys after burritos” options. I still wouldn’t buy one, though. 🙂

    • LOL. I know. I had to stare at it a minute to figure it out, but at the same time, I didn’t want anyone in the coffee shop to see me staring at it. 🙂

    Those phones make me think of the Doctor Who Comic Relief special, The Curse of Fatal Death. In it The Doctor and The Master communicate using a forgotten language that comprises of carefully controlled breaking of wind. Erm, I think I’ll stick with audio-visual. More than enough senses for me.

  3. That first GI Jennifer article was excellent! I appreciate his courage in speaking up for pragmatism. I actually like that, generally speaking, the genders have different strengths that complement one another. Thanks for that heads-up! And for mentioning my post. Hope your Mother’s Day was lovely!

    • Well said. Genders have different strengths that complement each other. Just look at me and Holmes . . . I’m great at talking; he’s great at listening. I’m great at eating; he’s great at cooking. I’m great at laughing; he’s great at telling jokes . . . It works. . . . Seriously, though, “equality” to me does not mean that women must be everything that men are or vice versa. It also doesn’t mean that women should be barred from doing things men do IF they are just as qualified. However, I agree with Brad Taylor in that we can’t cherry pick the consequences of demanding to do everything that men do, and we should be very careful what we ask for. It isn’t just about us today. It’s about our daughters tomorrow.

  4. Pity the oPhone doesn’t dispense noxious ‘prank’ odours. Butanethiol, for instance. I’d buy one if it did.
