If it talks like a duck, it might be this voice changer

It can also be used for hands-free conversation, avian or otherwise.

Spyville

Given how awful cell phone reception is in our area, it's doubtful that anyone would need a voice changer when conversations often sound like they're under water as it is. But outfits like Spyville never saw a situation that couldn't be subjected to some form of amateur espionage.

That must be why they thought up the Cell Phone Voice Changer, which is pretty much self-explanatory. We do admit that the choice of disguises did catch us off guard: "a duck, child, old man, or a robot," as related by OhGizmo.

What's most amusing about its product description, however, is that it touts "hands-free productivity" and "hands-free safety," as if a device like this is something anyone would use in everyday life. Because everyone knows that talking like a duck on a cell phone can be hazardous on the road.
