New Furby: Will Furbies Be Hot Again? Creepy Photo, Video
Revenge Return of the Furbies
Remember the Furby? That animatronic must-have toy that looked like a cyborg Mogwai? Well, the Furbies are back.
The 1998-era Furbies had kids tugging on their parents' sleeves in epidemic numbers, but, as with most Christmas-season fads, the Furbies were abandoned after a few years. This is fortunate, since otherwise they would have had a chance to assemble, Voltron-like, into a massive Furby world-domination machine. Humans would now be second-class citizens.
Looks like the Furby got a 2012 makeover, just in time for another swing at the Christmas season. Digital eyes, for a closer approximation of "friendliness". Layered polyester fur for a closer approximation of "cuddliness".
The new Furby still looks like an owl Terminator, but with digital eyes instead of those creepy clock-cat eyes. As with the old version, the new Furby has no on/off switch. The only to turn the new Furby off is to
smash it with a sledgehammer remove its batteries.
Here's proof that Furbys were sent back in time to kill Sarah Connor:
Indeed, Furbies are banned at all NSA locations... because they're listening.
This new batch of Furbies should be piled up and nuked from orbit. It's the only way to be sure.
