With This Trip We Let It RIP!

Some poor things just do not get any loving as into the closet people go a shoving. Hmm, get your mind from the gutter there is no need to get the butter. Today the cat will let them breathe a bit with a little RIP fit.


Could make bugs.
Hide them under rugs.
Oh what joy.
I'd eat such a toy.


The poor big cell,
Really went to hell.
It still has a perk,
Can use it to whack a jerk.


Carry your tunes.
Were they loons?
I suppose muscle it built.
Still those tapes can wilt.


Little pieces in a light up thing.
Much joy that had to bring.
Took too long.
Rather go beat Donkey Kong.


One whole hole.
That was a great goal.
Don't you love those big disks?
So covered all risks.


 The one that many threw away,
When really it is better for you at your bay.
It won't send emf crap all over,
And even pollute rover.


Those were the days,
Run through a simple maze.
With only a few buttons to press.
More with less?


Pay a quarter and have a play,
Sit there all day.
Bye bye money.
Bet Pac Man thought it was funny.


For tunes on the go,
That really flow,
See above.
This one is stationary love.


And this one was so great,
Nothing can relate.
Oh wait!
There is Youtube, sorry mate.

The poor contraptions have been seen once more. The cat is so nice at his shore, going back in time with a chime. Makes me glad for my thumb drive here at my hive. It has room in mass and can save much, unlike those huge disks, from my little rhyming ass.

Later all, have a nice fall.

  2. Those were the days, the era of things bulky
    When viewed now they look to be so unwieldy
    Time savings when first appeared
    Innovative, life changing as touted
    But now somehow they are a laugh, real funny

  7. These were great in their day
    but, technology had it's way
    so, these things went away
    sure you can find them on eBay
    laughing at the size of the cell phone
    I wonder if it had a really loud tone
    did it include the ability to roam

    Did I hear you mention a whack
    so, here you go at your shack
    I'm running after a whack attack
    but, don't worry I'll be back..(lol)

    Have a great day is all I can say...

    1. Yeah they went to the attic
      Creating nothing but static

      I'll get you back

  8. The original Nintendo was loads of fun
    It sure had a heck of a run

  9. Toys go bye bye in the dump
    Out of style and a great big lump
    Everything must be electronic
    Or it stays with the old fashioned bubonic
    The phone that's hooked onto the wall
    You'll still find it out in my hall
    The cell phone you put close to your ear
    Will rot your brain but never fear
    What kills YOU first It will be a race
    The outlet or cell you hold to your face

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. haha yeah that is true
      At each zoo
      Outlet or cell
      Which will be first to send one to hell
      But truly even know
      So they reap what they sow

  13. Oh the floppy disk. I still remember calling Wal-Mart when I was like 10 years old to see if they had any (to back up my files - I was a computer geek even back then) and got some redneck who was like, "Uh... a what? Is that in the toy section? Is it, like, foam or something?"

    People didn't know what they were back then. They definitely don't know what they are now.

    And for the record, I still have and play my NES. And SNES. I can always come back to those games.

    1. haha that is sad
      Never knew what they were at their pad
      Now I can see as they have become extinct indeed

      Nes busted though
      Those games are always fun to give a go

  23. I fondly remember the Creepy Crawlers. A dangerously hot surface to bake items on... the thing got up to about 8 million degrees and didn't even have an on/off switch. You just plugged it in! Wonder how many house fires were caused by little kids leaving the things unattended!
