Shut Up And Take My Money!

If you're a faithful reader of this blog, and I know you are, then you obviously remember a post I did two years, two months and twenty days ago. Remember? The one about the Spyder III Pro Arctic Series laser. Of course you do. Anyway, apparently the team over at Wicked Lasers are also faithful readers, because they took my idea and ran with it. They've made an accessory that attaches to the Spyder laser and makes it look just like a lightsaber. If you already own a Spyder laser, this accessory will only cost you $100. If not, you're going to have to shell out another $250 to $1000, depending on which laser you choose.

They call it the "LaserSaber" because it's similar to a lightsaber, but without all of the copyright issues. Granted, you still can't slice through blast doors on a trade federation ship with them, but I'll take what I can get.

Check it out:

Well, that was kind of a tease. They show you all of these cool, Jedi-like moves that you can do with the LaserSaber and they say things like "only operate while wearing laser shades" and "do not participate in any form of fencing or swordplay" and "may cause dysentery." They've sucked all of the fun out of it. That's like making a hoverboard and then telling the customers "in no way should you ever try to stand or ride on this product." And, as we all know, the only warning label that should be placed on hoverboards is that the regular models don't work on water unless you have a rocket-powered model.

So, Wicked Lasers, since I now know that you are such big fans of Slice of Fried Gold, could you talk to your friends over at NASA and see if we can get working on hoverboard technology? We've only got three years, one month and nineteen days 'till these things gotta be mainstream.

My thanks to, alert reader, Lecia for submitting this article.
