First of all, I think this is genius. Sheer genius. The only way it could possibly be better is if you could program it with the most obnoxious voice in your life, be it boss, in-law, outlaw, politician, whomever:
You have to wake up enough to (put on your glasses, first), find the remote, and then aim it rather well to get the damn thing to stop.
I really do mourn the fact that it is not programmable. Damn! What could be more satisfying than starting your day with a nice, well-aimed, STFU? I can understand the safety reasons for not shaping it like a gun. That would be fun, but ultimately dangerous. Especially in the hands of Liberty Girl, whose rant today is as delicious as it gets.
Besides, as many times as the J.R. has pointed theTV remote at me and clicked it, hoping for a change of channel...
Funny, though, I play that STFU game with the television remote all the time. If I had that alarm clock I'd program it to tap into the morning newscast, because I'm sure the Obama Overexposure will be almost as painful as the Rachel Ray apocrypha of Food Network shows.
