Where Steve Jobs Got The Idea For a Phone That Does Everything But Be a Phone

This must be it. He stole it from Yogi Bear!
This is a radio that dispenses Bumwad. It's just like a phone that you watch TV on. Or a toaster that you shave with.

Here's Yogi about to take a big ol' brown bear dump while listening to his favorite tunes:


You get better reception on your dumping radio if you use pink wad.

It might have also been where the idea for drop-down menus came from.

I always knew something wasn't quite right about that newfangled contraption!

Yes if there was a TP holder on my I-POD i would use it more often. Now it's just collecting dust.

I am reading this very post on my iPad while in the bathroom.

WELCOME TO THE FUTURE.

Is there an app for being constipated?

Hello John,

Sorry to write to you through here...

I just finished a short animated cartoon film clip for my band...and I wanted to thank you for teaching and letting us all believe it's possible to make your own cartoons and have fun and learn while doing it.
I learnt to do my first walk cycle with the post you did on flip the frog's double bounce walk years ago, I'm still learning heaps every day and having a ball!!!

here is the link

"Is there an app for being constipated?"

Good question, Marty. Will there come a day when we need to download an app in order to download a crap? And what about the matter of streaming?...

Andrés Sanhueza said...

This one at least does seems to accomplish both functions well, although it would make more sense in the kitchen.

Thomas said...

Yogi, you're doing it all wrong! The back of the TP should face the wall! Dumb ol' bear.

Yogi, you're doing it all wrong! The TP's back should face the wall, ya dumb ol' bear.

The Yogi Kiddie Bathroom distracted Steve Jobs so much that he failed to notice his profuse rectal bleeding.

Facundo Ezequiel said...

Wow. How can you take a dump while listening to the radio? It's distracting...

In the second pic Yogi looks like he's really desperate to download the brownload.

My first ever comment here is to let you know that you could acquire an "elegantísimo cagófono" from here like the one shown up:
http://articulo.mercadolibre.com.ar/MLA-427983562-unica-radio-jabon-federal-cporta-rollo-papel-mira-video-_JM .

Found this about a month ago, apparently is from a company named Federal which produced soap, probably around 70's and earlier.

Tomorrow ends the auction, so, harry up unless you want to dump like regular boring people for the rest of your life. (Don't think there are many of this out there)



Cheers, Hernán.

Perhaps this oddity helped inspire Saturday Night Live's TV Funhouse's ballsy COGI BEAR satire (all its animals wore bulging briefs).

Ken said...

I'm guessing he listens to Ride Of The Valkyries.

By the way, today's your birthday isn't it?

@Hernán Rancati:

I went to your link. $450 - holy crap! I paid $39 for the Yogi Bear toilet radio on eBay, and got a cool cartoon character box to boot!

Darkhawk said...

Hey, hey Boo-Boo! Why don't you do a poo-poo while doing the jigga-boo?

I couldn't think of anything else that rhymed xD.

Bumwad is my new favorite word.

Hernan Rancati said...
