USB pole dancer struts funky stuff, geeks drool
Not Safe For Work... or Wives
The reaction of many people to the idea of playing sports games on Nintendo's new Wii console is to shout: "Get a life and go do it for real." Well, you could say they same thing about this USB pole dancer toy, launched today.
But for those worried about the effect such sordid entertainment might have on wives and/or wallets, here's an alternative. According to supplier Boystuff.co.uk, this 8in bikini-clad homunculus will gyrate flirtatiously to "bring a smile and some festive cheer to both the home and office with her cheeky dance routine".
And the pert mannequin - she's more Sindy than Sin-dy - will bop away to your tunes, we're told, if you hook her up not only to a spare USB port but also an earphone socket.
The plastic puppet can be yours for a mere £30, and Boystuff.co.uk is taking pre-orders now ahead of its anticipated 20 December ship date. ®
