This thing has been turning up in my FaceBook feed for days. It’s a sponsored post (meaning, they paid for an ad) for these tiny cameras.

Can you appreciate the size of them? I mean tiny. About an inch cubed. And according to the page, they run for 100 hours wirelessly and record to SD card. According to the website at the link, they’re $25.

I know there have been seriously tiny spy cameras for a while, but these things are so little and cheap and simple, and something about them being advertised on grandma’s social media platform of choice is just creepy.

Nonsense! Creepy! Balderdash! Tommyrot!

Can’t you see Grandma is hanging that on her peach tree?

It’s there to film the fairies disrobing when they bathe in the peach nectar.

So, did Grandma live in Cottingley as a child perhaps? Up to her old tricks again?

Well, I just looked these up on Amazon, if you want the kind that will catch fairy folk images, you have to get the globally changing climate friendly gluten free special filters.

Those go for $200.00 US. 🙂

No wonder it’s only $20: It can’t take an SD card bigger than 32GB? Max capacity right now is 512GB. Plus, the pic on the site says it has a mini-USB connector. I haven’t seen one of those in a long time. Everybody else is using micro-USB or USB-C.

Did you notice that the pic points to a “Reset the hole”?

And watch out for the Bic Pixies—they steal your pens and pencils.

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
