I'm watching TV this morning and I see a commercial for The Clapper. In the age of smart plugs and Alexa I had no idea The Clapper could still be around. Yes, it is. It's improved too. Now you can control two things. Two claps for one. Three claps for the other. Yes, you might have been less than impressed with that explanation, but it gets better. There's a Darth Vader Clapper. It's his head on the wall outlet and he's supposed to speak to you when you clap.

Now if only I could get Sofia Verara's voice on Alexa my world would be perfect.

You laugh, Hifi, but those things are still around because people like my parents are still around. I wanted to get them a device to turn some lamps on and off to keep my dad from climbing behind the sofa on a daily basis. No way can I get them something that is computer controlled. I don't live close enough to set it up and fix it everytime it doesn't do something they wanted it to do.

I didn't think about the clapper.

Christmas when you see commercials for the Clapper and chia pets!
Kinda nostalgic for my age group.

I saw that commercial the other day. Vader says something about the dark side when you clap the lights off.

Between the Clapper and Chia Pets, we know the holiday season has arrived.
