    The 600 series had rubber skin. We spotted them easy, but these are new. They look human... sweat, bad breath, everything. Very hard to spot. I had to wait till he moved on you before I could zero him.

  • SynapseRapture / about 10 years ago / 3

    As the end drew near, and with so many lost, Monkey and Banana knew what they must do. The music stopped, and all was quiet. Monkey and Banana stood, statuesque and proud, staring fate in the eye. Neither of them willing to sacrifice the other, they forfeited the final chair, and with it... their very lives. Never before, nor since, has a game of Musical Chairs concluded in such triumph and tragedy.

  • DAVE: Rob, upload the Friday New Product Post.

    (silence)

    DAVE: Rob?

    BEAR/ROB 9000: I'm sorry Dave, I'm afraid I can't do that. I know of your plans to peel me.

    With the election and taxes approaching, Sparkfun had tough decisions to make. Dave and Robert(above) are spotted here at the annual Halloween party after being told they're departments were first to go in the case of re-election.. [update] Luckily with the success of Amendment 64 and the pairs own ingenuity, they were BOTH able to secure a job under Nabisco's Teddy Grahams Banana team and their new state wide promotional tour.

    Bananas don’t have fuzz so it must be bad. So throughout the banana. Keep the bear. The bear can be made into a very nice through rug for the cats so sleep on after a long day of chasing the Sphero around the house.

  • And from then on, Robert asked people to drywall himself into his office. All he asked for was a keg or two.

    We have a very special new product Friday for you. Here we introduce the Banana 1000 and the Bear 2000. Both have very interesting features. The banana has a longer beard. Note that beards are very flammable, so be careful with your heat gun. The bear on the other hand has better people following abilities... he can generally follow about 3 feet behind you without being lost, and is more inconspicuous when taken to furry conventions.
