Thomas (link defunct) for the cool link that got me started on this one.
First, anyone who watches Mythbusters must see
this Flash animation. (link defunct)
Seen it? Okay. Jamie’s technobabble over the big diagram reminded me of an old electrical engineering in-joke: the turbo encabulator. I have known for a long time about a video incarnation of this joke apparently made by some folks at Rockwell: The Rockwell Automation Retro Encabulator.
However, what I didn’t realize is that Chrysler took a shot at this old joke even earlier: The Chrysler Turbo Encabulator. Keep listening. There are some screw-the-customer jokes at the end.
I love how this old joke just keeps coming back.
Bonus for the Mythbusters fans
Do pretty girls fart?
I hope they pay the poor girl well.
