In case any of you missed it, I was the fool who bought a $130 9" Vinyl Nibbler on E-bay.  Four people were bidding on it in total.

Argh.

But now... I have one (or more accurately, my wife has one for Christmas).

what makes you a fool? Were you not intending to win it? Is it not what you thought you were bidding on?

I was actually looking at that Nibbler on Ebay but unfortunately it was out of my price range even at $40 US.  Man I hate being poor.  Now I know how Zoidberg feels.

Maybe you could settle a debate for us when you get Nibbler in the mail.  Does he have 3 or 4 fingers?  laff (there's a whole thread related to this and no one really has an answer except maybe it's an animator's goof)

Nibbler came in the mail today.  I'll take some photos soon.  There are some stats on the back of the box.  I tried scanning it in, but it's not coming out right.

His third eye/antenna is called the "Tertiary Optic Receiver."  It rotates 360 degrees for "optimum scanning efficiency."  Standard on all Nibblonian models.

His nose is called his "Scent Aperture."  It can smell dinner up to 35,000 meters away (25,000 meters with a head cold). 

His two fangs are called "Multi-purpose incisors."  They are capable of cutting through hide, shell, fur, bone, wood, tin, steel, or mortar.  Easy to floss.

His mouth is called his "Sustenance intake orifice."  Fully expandable jaw allows easy consumption of most food sources and some mid-size space crafts.

"Non-Functional Cape."  Huggability quotient increases exponentially when worn.

"Centralized Digestive Organ."  Able to produce enough dark matter for 4.7 round-trip voyages betwen Earth and Omicron Persei 8.

His diaper is called his "Dark Matter Receptacle."  Capable of supporting up to 325 pounds of rocket fuel.  Specially engineered teflon lining prevents diaper rash.

"Cute Yellow Boots."  Daring and fashionable.  What more can you ask from a pair of shoes?

And most importantly:   He has THREE fingers on each hand.

Who was pointless? Teral? Not at all, he's the best we have around here!  big grin

He was aiming at your usage of bad chat (1337-speak) english. Stick to proper English, because this is an international Message-Board and English is the language to use here!  wink

You should realy read the FAQ and the board rules like many PEELers have already suggested to you. It'll help to get along here. And once you adapted it'll be the best place to be.

So enjoy it here at Nerd-world.  smile

He posted that because your spelling, grammar and punctuation is so bad, you dumb fuck. Haven't you noticed that virtually nobody else here post spelling you as "u", what as "wot", etc?

Anyway, getting back on topic - it does sound pretty extravagent, but I'm sure any Futurama fan would be in their element with something like that. Nice buy, and I can't wait to see some photos of it.   smile

Thank zombie jesus for you, Teral.

Don't fell badly, ringwyrm, I've spent more money I don't have on things I don't need. Anyhow, those descriptions are great. Love the "Cute Yellow Boots". I'll have to chime in: Take pictures!

Kicked your ass.
