I'm calling UNCLE on this one.

I don't know what to make of this.

I just don't....know...what...


Fuck it. I've got nothing. Maybe I'll edit this one later, when I'm more awake. Maybe I won't.

I'm frightened. Hold me.

Oh God! You're frightened?! Think about how messed up the kids who get put into those things will be...

And we wonder why kids today are so messed up... Sheesh! That's really disturbing...

Well, what's flummoxed me is that I think it's a joke. In fact I'm SURE it's a joke...but they won't say whether it is or not, they're really holding steady with it. I...kind of...admire...the...

Oh fuck. IS it a joke? It HAS to be.

I feel so...dense.

I like the multi baby cage myself; the babies can haul themselves up and visit with the over babies at will. Rather a nice feature, as it encourages the building of social skils and upper body strength.

antibarney...you smell nice.

Dr. E - I'm warming to the idea. It'll keep the little buggers from pulling the cats' tails. Though a good scratch & hiss is a good lesson to learn at some point.

I hope it's a joke... although as Dr. E mentions, it might be quite the learning tool, rather like one of those hamster complex thingys...

I don't know which is more fucking hilarious: the website, or the fact that you don't know whether it's a fucking joke!

With quotes like:

"Be sure to ask us about our new electric confinement solutions!"

"Now we never have to babysit our daughter's child!"

"Without discipline and structure, a child may become susceptible to liking rock and roll, doing drugs, or in an extreme case believing in liberalism."

"Due to a demand for combining multiple cages into one for larger families, we present the Multibaby cage. Perfect for the family of quintuplets. "

"Baby Cage allows me to leave my baby at home unattended for days at a time."

and you still don't know?

I always thought that the idea that Amercians just didn't understand subtlety was an exaggeration.

Sorry to humiliate you, but at least it should put you out of your misery.

I'm not humiliated, beardy. I'm just tired, and clearly didn't read as far into the site as you did. I just looked at the front page and threw it up there.

Plus, they really do "sell" it. AS I said, it HAS to be a joke, and I admire their deadpan-ness.

I'm awake now. What time is it where you are?

Don't you remember the Skinner Black Box for kids?... Oh, that's right, it was me that got the A in psychology wasn't it. And I didn't study either!

I'm a born B student, and I'm not that big a fan of psych anyway. I learn more about the human psyche from reading novels.

But then, you like all that psych stuff. You probably thought the Milgram experiments were A-okay.

Oooo, what'd the deleted comment say?!

And how do you know they *really* sell it until you try and buy one. Go ahead and let us know what happens ;P

I suspect they take your money and then ...gasp...nothing happens.

Ignore El B, Andraste. Poor fellow stays in Belgium where all he can buy is beer and chocolate, he does not understand the cornucopia of goods available to Americans and the confusion that can arise thereof.

it is definitely a joke

Thanks, fellas. I really wasn't insulted by El B. As I said, I didn't look any further than the front page before putting up the link. I was very tired (christ, it was 7:30am here!) and I did deserve a good talking to for not investigating further before posting my confusion. Had I looked at a few more things on the site...seriously.

If your time stamp is accurate, then I'm about 9 hours ahead. It's 3.35pm here.

Joke? Just what are the commercial possibilities here? I'm always looking for a good business to invest in...
