Ladies and gentleman, it's time to break out your MC Hammer pants and dance like they're on fire, because you can't touch this, er, telephone!
Koontech sent us word Wednesday that it is introducing an "Explosion Proof Telephone." Our suggested ad tagline for this technological wonder: "Even if you drop dead, your call won't!"
The dumpy telephone, dubbed the KNEX1 and which looks like it is aimed at the booming [Geddit!!!] payphone market or maybe intended as a corporate deskphone in a particularly boring British film from the 1970s, is said by the manufacturer to be explosion- and fire-proof.
"We are all Happy!" proclaims Koontech in its email announcing the phone, which naturally they would be. They probably have enough of the bomb-proof units to build a small shelter out of them.
For the rest of us, it might be time to update that classic Cold War slogan for modern times: Dial, duck and cover!
