As I've said here before, I'm easily amused. I demonstrated this to myself once again this morning when I discoverer that if you do a few rapid clicks on the little speaker icon for audible pronunciation in TFD, it will mimic Max Headroom*.
You can also get a British Maxine Headroom by doing the same on the British Flag icon.
For instance...
Elemental
ela,ela,ela,elamenta,elemental.

Yeah, very easily amused.Dancing

*If you don't know who Max Headroom is, you have been culturally deprived.

I tried it, and apparently we have a similar sense of humor as I laughed out loud at my attempts.

Speaking of Max Headroom, I can't see Matt Frewer in anythingwithout thinking of Max and hearing him stutter. I saw him just recently in a show and mentioned Max to my wife. She had never heard of him (cultural deprivation).

Okay so I'm culturally deprived as never heard of him.

Is there a tablet for this? Boo hoo!

A day without laughter... is a day wasted :-)

No but here's a link to the original movie on YouTube.
