Pennsylvania 6 - 5000


Just one quick question- no, a few- no, 7 questions:

1. Is it not the coolest and way-before-it's-time-iest, Jetson's-esque invention?
2. Does it not also seem as though it became obsolete 2 seconds after it hit shelves?
3. How many people do you think did pervy things with it?
4. Doesn't it seem like this only belongs in the 70's Playboy mansion and Graceland?
5. Why can I not for the life of me remember this consarn contraption?
6. Does anyone remember it?
7. Do you think it came in any other color besides Harvest Gold and Avocado?

  1. No one remembers them becaus eit was one of those wave of the future products that never made it to store shelves.

  2. That would explain it then. Well crap, now I want one even more!

  3. I never remember seeing this. That would have been so cool. I would love to have had one of these. I could definitely see Hef or Elvis using one of these. Very awesome. Have a great weekend.

  4. Wouldn't it be awesome to have one now? Who needs camera cell phones when you can have this giant behemoth of outdated plastic? Thanks for reading, Keith!

  5. That's so awesome! it's totally like VOIP but with a phone instead of a computer! Old-school stuff is so cute.

  6. I DO remember these. And I wanted one in a big way. I also remember conversations about these phones, along the lines of, 'But I won't be able to call anyone until I've done my makeup and hair!"

  7. That's so funny! I never thought of that- no more dashing to the phone naked, right out of the shower!
