Last one, I swear

Furbies are beloved of hackers and soft toy makers and have appeared with all sorts of modifications and customizations. Of all the variations the one with most staying power forsomedamnreason is the long Furby.

An Etsy search of “long furby” calls up horrors beyond the imagination (I kind of like the All Seeing Lemon, though).

A lot of custom Furbies are made preferentially with non-working toys, so even broken they maintain value.

The picture is not of three long Furbies, though. It’s a three-headed long Furby. Making of here. The same guy made a much more interesting 44-Furby organ.

Okay, that’s it. Everybody say goodbye to Toh-loo Kah.

44-Furby Organ. That is why there will always be an England.

Uh, I was told by a reliable source that if you see these things for four hours or more, and they start talking to you and after a while you think that they are starting to make sense

You should slow waaaay doowwn on the mushrooms, okay?

Purple Furby got a ‘lectric brain
Supposed to speaks English but it ain’t too plain
Thing’s actin’ funny, but I don’t know why
‘Scuse me while I disassemble this guy

Purple Furby pieces all around
Didn’t know how to tear it down
Is it broke or just shy is a mystery
But whatever it is, my Furby won’t no more speak to me.
Help me! Help me!
Ah no, no

Purple Furby, Purple Furby…

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.
