What they should be called

I imagine it must be difficult to name your inventions, it must be similar to thinking of subjects for posts and names for your kids. I assume inventors consider the functionality of their creation before giving it a name e.g. Toaster (Something you can't really do for your kids or you would have alot of people going by the name Cryer or Boob-sucker). I also think, on the premise that name is based on functionality, that some of todays inventions would have to be renamed. So here are a few inventions, I think, that based on current day functionality, should be renamed.

TV - Replacement Parent
Well you can guess why, TV seems to be raising more kids than parents because parents are too busy working. Another nominee for replacement parent is the live-in domestic worker.

Cellphone - Mxit Machine AKA F**K YOU MXIT
Ok if you're from SA, you can't honestly say you use your cellphone for anything more than you use it for Mxit. As much as I convince myself Mxit hates me, I still log on, its an addiction.

Internet - Pseudo-life
A wonder of the Internet is that it grants the tremendously unpopular to appear popular and/or cool. That is if you care about such things, and don't mind being fake to people, which most people don't seem to have a problem with.

That is as many as my fasting brain can come up with, if you can think of more, feel free to share.

Till next time in Waseem world

Ok I'm going to name my kid boob-sucker. It will probably scar him for life but it will be worth the chuckle every time someone calls his name.
Lets try some:
cigarettes - 'life shortner' Campaign could go something like life too long and tedious, here shave 2 minutes every time thats right EVERY TIME!
Internet - Porn Dispenser
anything else is what you do between downloads
Facebook - Personal Application Page
Find people you never wanted to stay in contact with in first place and send them Apps.

anon 2 - let me tell you a little story

once there were some kids having a jolly time outside - they played on the jungle gym, had fun on the swings, and just enjoyed life. but there was one little boy who used to hide indoors and whenever he had a chance, he would peer through the window and he was jealous that the other kids played without him. No one was too sure why the other kids did not want to play with him. some people thought it was because he smelled kinda funny, other people thought it was because of all the vile things he used to say, most just thought that he was a prick.

now and then, he used to get so jealous when he saw all the kids playing without him, that he used to throw stones at them from his house. no one knew where the stones came from, because he used to hide and throw them, and while they used to hurt from time to time, most of the time, no one would care, because they were enjoying life and he was not.

"[16:125] You shall invite to the path of your Lord with wisdom and kind enlightenment, and debate with them in the best possible manner. Your Lord knows best who has strayed from His path, and He knows best who are the guided ones. "
