  2. OMG….best ever. PS I totally still had a flip phone until a year ago. I loved that thing.

    I still use an antenae on my tv and my iPhone kept trying to correct the spelling of antenae to ants arenas. Those are going to be awesome in ten years.

    • Steve Hall says:

      Well, Alex, that could be because you actually have an antenna (or, if more than one, antennas) connected to your TV. Unless your TV is an insect, in which case, yes, it could have antennae. πŸ™‚

      I’m sorry…no snarkiness intended, but iPhone’s autocorrect does bring out my inner spelling geek.

    Dude, you are SO RIGHT about 24. WTF was happening in that show, anyway? Over.

  5. Kelly says:

    Lol, your right about the walkie talkies I was just playing with them a couple days ago and they are still awesome.

  6. TheNextMartha says:

    Hilarious. Love

  7. Excellent.

    Also for me…
    2001 – Hell yeah lets go into Manhattan. We can kick at the clubs until the 8:00 am train back to CT.
    2011 – Yeah I don’t watch 30 Rock so much, it comes on too late.

    I always wanted a walkie talkie…. but never had one. I was always jealous of the kids who had them.

    walkie talkies blow.

    • Judas says:

      To the alleged “jesus”, you are foolish and have clearly not played with walkie talkies since you lost your last friend. For you, I feel sorry.

  12. I… I use a flip phone.

    Hahahaha. This is the best blog. Hilarious stuff. Specially, the walkie talkie one. They are always always in business. This was my first read. I am gonna be here much much more often now. Amazing one.

  15. LeoFLJ says:

    Walkie Talkies are still the greatest things ever. I’m at college and me and a friend carry a pair around everyday so we can talk to each other across campus and plan on when to get lunch instead of texting each other. It’s much more fun.

  16. Awesome. Thanks for reminding me how awesome walkie talkies are. Time to dust them off and have some fun. Roger that.

  17. Kelley says:

    Ha! So true! I can’t imagine what will happen in 10 MORE years! Walkie-talkies will still be cool.

  18. Hank says:

    Ha walkie talkies all the way. We brought them to a music festival because every other year we could never get our phones to work with the cell towers being overloaded. That and you get to use a handle!

    That guy won’t see any difference with high-def on his 2001 television. Maybe if the cartoonist gave him a new flat screen πŸ˜‰

  20. Luda says:

    I’m not investing in a SmartPhone until they make one that cooks, cleans and gives me a massage.

    Not that kind of massage, you perv.


  21. Walkie Talkies will FOREVER be cool! Even in the year 3020! πŸ˜€
    TV’s are slowly becoming more complicated! WTF? What happen to just truning the TV on and selecting your channel and watching????
    You are awesome! As always!

  22. Suniverse says:


    I also am a little/ a lot sad that iPhone isn’t a flip phone. Flipping open a phone? BAD. ASS.

    PS I still can’t tell the different between HD and regular – except that the news anchors could use a switch back to a vaseline smeared lens.

  23. Alexandra says:

    I like to use my fliphone b/c it makes me feel like I’m an Avenger.

    It’s true.

    HILARIOUS, woman: I would love a book for my nightstand on things like this..to fall asleep to, and have the best, craziest dreams.

    YOu are so awesome. And make me laugh. I wish you could hear me when I read your posts.

    YOu’d like it.


  24. Best summarized with this walkie talkies.

  25. Ermmm are you aware that the iPhone makes a walkie-talkie app called HeyTell? Life is pretty much complete right now (well until Ant Arenas come along…)

  26. […] the difference 10 years makes. Cartoon covering TV, mapping, cell phones and more. […]

  27. jackblack says:


    I cant think of walkie talkies anymore without that popping into my head..

  28. Scott says:

    I totally loved my walkie talkies as a kid, but now the dudes in the hardware store talking on phones like that is super annoying, likely that is just raging jealousy!

    So, The Empress is yelling your blog name over her fairy blogmother megaphone and when I heard her, I had to stomp on over here because she is always right. Always.

    I’m sure you’ve heard this before, but are you Hyperbole and a Half’s sister? You are insanely brilliant/funny.

    I remember when I got a Razor phone, everyone was JEALOUS. I felt so fancy flipping that shit open. (Am I allowed to cuss here, because I never know the individual blog rules.)

    And your map quest was spot on. My husband will kill us one day as he navigates us down the road from his phone.

    I’m Joann, by the way. I blog sporadically.(But don’t read my latest post if you happen to check it out, it’s a snooze fest. Read something in the faves. Not that I’m telling you to check out my blog. I’m not one of those annoying people. Just saying.)I do, however, write non-stop on other things like the stupid novel I’m about to shoot out for rejections, but mostly I yell at my kids. I used to be a newspaper journalist, but then the newspapers went to heaven with the dinosaurs. I also live in Florida. I have not been attacked by egrets, but a Sandhill Crane tried to mug me once and those are some scary ass looking birds up close. Okay, I’ll stop now, in case you think I’m totally weird. I’m not, for the record. Just ask The Empress.
