Gadgettes saved Christmas!
Dear Molly, Kelly, & Jason,

I want to thank you for making my Christmas this year!. After I heard about the infrared thermometer I told my husband that was the only thing I wanted and being as reliable as the tides, he delivered. He got me the FOODPRO Thermometer made by FLUKE from Grainger.

Then, after you talked about the Douglas hammer on Gadgettes I decided it would be the perfect gift for my hard-to-buy-for contractor brother-in-law. I decided to go with a finishing 18 oz model and while he wasn't familiar with the brand, he could tell a good hammer when he saw one.

So, thank you sooo much!

Welsh, not Scottish!
Fascinating hearing Sean Connery's call to your show, with what he described as a "Scottish" accent. Mostly well done, I have Scottish relatives by marriage. But this is a bit odd, since Sean Connery is Welsh, not Scottish.

On the other hand, Sean Connery has been doing movies in the U.S. for so long, maybe now he has to fake his own accent?

Hello Kitty Waist Slenderer
Molly,

Wow, just when you think it couldn't get any more random than the hello kitty paper shredder, this comes along:

The Hello Kitty Waist Slenderer. It's one of those vibrating belts that's supposed to, I dunno, shake your cellulite into submission(?) lol. Per Gizmodo, /"/ /Just slip on the Slender Shaper, flip the switch to "Svelte," and you'll go from a size 6 to a size 2 in no time."

Related question for you three: What do you guys is THE MOST random Hello Kitty merchandise conceivable? How about Hello Kitty Stool Softeners?

Happy Holidays! ...

Dr. Karl
