Hot Slut Of The Day!

Deluxe Talkgirl!

While nearly every living thing in the country gets morning time drunk on Covfefe-tinis (Russian vodka and melted champagne popsicles) as we play Comey Hearing drinking games (like doing a shot every time he says “Russian” and finishing the glass every time he says my favorite political word “COLLUSION!!!!!!“), I am bringing you highly important posts that really, really matter: like a post about a tape recorder for kids from the 90s. Although, today’s HSOTD is sort of topical since I’m sure everybody is screaming, “TALK, GIRL!” at Comey.

Before there was Talkgirl, there was the more boring and uglier Talkboy. Tiger Electronics originally made Talkboy as a non-working prop for Macaulay Culkin’s character in 1992’s Home Alone 2: Lost In New York. To help promote Home Alone 2 and to bring in even more money, Tiger worked with director John Hughes and the studio on making a fully-working Talkboy to sell. They started selling Talkboy to the public during the 1992 holiday-buying season.

The original recipe Talkboy was pretty simple: it had a cassette player, a recorder and a microphone. The one Kevin McAllister used in Home Alone 2 had a voice changer on it, so Tiger put out a Deluxe version, which had a “slow playback” feature that made a kid’s voice sound deeper. In 1993, many a school secretary probably said this sentenceL “Okay, (insert name of student here), I know your ass ain’t sick and I know this ain’t your dad. Drop that Talkboy and get in class.

Tiger put out other versions like Talkboy FX Plus (it was the CGI for voices of its time because it played sound effects) and Talkboy Jr. (a smaller version). And then there was Talkgirl! Talkgirl, Deluxe Talkgirl, Talkgirl FX Plus and Talkgirl Jr. all had the same features as their Talkboy versions. The only difference was they were pink, and they also came with a cassette that played a sandwich recipe and told girls to get into the kitchen, dammit!

But really, Talkboy was homely and boring-looking and didn’t exude 90s glamour like Talkgirl did. If someone is interviewing you for whatever reason and they aren’t using a Talkgirl to record, you should immediately grab your bag, head for the exit and say, “I only talk for Talkgirl.
