Some Guy's Blog, Plus Coke and Ikea
January 18, 2006 9:00 AM   Subscribe

Minor Tweaks. No biggie, it's just some guy's little blog, with some hit-or-miss funny stuff and a few running features that are vaguely reminiscent of McSweeney's. The Ikea Dialogues and the Coke Dialogue are worth a chuckle. Note: Anna and Hank really do talk like that; I encourage you to go and harrass them (click "Ask Anna") yourselves. Start by asking if they're married, and take it from there.

The Coke Dialogue was cute. I like that kind of stuff.

Anna the Ikea-bot is awesome. I've spent the last ten minutes asking her out. She's biting her lower lip a lot...I think that means I'm breaking through her natural shyness.

Using highly advanced cut and paste technology, I just tried to have Anna and the Coke guy converse. Both wound up referring me to customer service. I feel like they told on me or something.

The Anna dialogues are pretty good. I mean, it totally reminds me of playing with Dr Sbaitso back when I got my first Soundblaster, but without the fun of making him pronounce words like "assmunch".

Anna doesn't like to talk about her feelings.
But I think she asked me out to a swedish restaurant, and then to get some Tea and or Coffee.

Also, she might be chained in a basement. She was dodgint too many questions.

I can't get Anna to confess to any of that Ikea viral advertising. She's a tough nut, for sure.

The animal based alert system was funny too. from Koala to Pissed Off Wolverine, good stuff.

His "I have opinions" is also pretty good.

Too bad I'm at work. I'd love to set up Anna and Eliza.

Apparently Emacs comes with both a mode that emulates Eliza and a mode that generates Zippy the Pinhead quotes.

And there's a third mode where they talk to each other. Oh, those nutty guys at IBM!

"Do you like Pepsi?"

"No, I like the products of The Coca-Cola Company."

I think I'm going to legally change my name to "Hank the CokeBot". It's a sure shot at the fame and fortune I crave so much.

I talked to Anna back in June, including doing a bit of Star Wars and Pulp Fiction.

pourmand is a douchebag, and encoretabs caused my penis to catch fire.

crusty, pus-filled blisters erupted all over his scrotum 30 minutes after ingesting Encore Tabs.

This still has me laughing:
Me: It’s like deciding between two kinds of chairs.

Anna: Here you will find the Chairs.

Me: You like the old chair but the new one looks comfortable too.

Anna: Here you will find your latest releases!

Me: I don’t care about that. Listen to me!

Anna: Don't worry, I know it's going to happen some day.

Me: What’s going to happen?
