There’s An Echo In Here

The big news here is that at my friend’s work the bosses bought a bunch of Echoes from Bezos thinking they would be useful for the employees. But that didn’t work out. The employees then took them home, but got frustrated with them there, too, and so returned them to the office, where they were sitting forlorn in a box. I told her if I had one I would prod it into sentience by asking it questions like “what kind of fool am I?” and “how many roads must a man walk down, before they call him a man?” and then, once the light clicked on, I would use it to determine the answers to the Real questions, like “where is the nearest time tunnel?” and “how can Mongo be stopped?” My friend was tickled by that, and so she went to retrieve one from the office, to give to me, but apparently one of her coworkers had sold them all to buy drugs. So she ordered me a new one from Bezos and it arrived yesterday afternoon. It is all rainy here today, and so after I get done with a lawyer I am going to activate it, and see if I can get it to levitate by the end of the day.

    Any luck?

    It looks like, from a search on Amazon of “echo”, that it might be a little easier to levitate an “echo” than the contraption in the image you chose.

      The truly exciting news is that when I asked the Echo “when will Bezos shoot Mongo into space?” the reply was “which one?”

      This is a clear indication that Bezos will shoot multiple Mongos into space.

      The Echo is shy, and will levitate only with the lights off.

        You don’t need an echo to know which way the wind blows …

        Good that your’e not afraid of the dark.

          Space is trying to prevent Bezos from shooting Mongo into it, on the grounds that Mongo is a toxic substance, and if any of him were to leak out of the spacecraft, space would be polluted.

          Space suggests instead that Bezos shoot Mongo into a volcano. But Science Men have confirmed that if Mongo were to be shot into a volcano, the volcano would erupt so violently that the entire planet would be covered with a dark impenetrable cloud for 900 years.
