Is there some toy out there that is called "Bobu" or "Bubo" or something like that which is the new craze? My 20-month old son has made a few comments about it and I think we saw the tail-end of a commercial for it the other day, but I can't remember what the actual name of the toy was. Not finding anything on Google, so I figured I'd "ask the planet".

I hope you have better luck than I did today trying to fined a stuffed Mastiff today on-line. I figured it would take me about 2 minutes. I spent 2 1/2 hours trying to find one and never did.

I'm now thinking this may not be the best "night crew" question to ask.

I think that's it! OMG! There is no way I am buying that thing.

100% mind****.

I stumbled upon it one day while flipping past PBS (as I'm wont to do) and didn't change the channel until it was over. Really, "mind****" doesn't even begin to describe it.

Teletubbies + acid, weed, and crazy glue + MORE acid + I-don't-even-****ing-know-and-I'm-not-sure-I-want-to = Boohbah

Exactly! I caught that one day at lunch. The little Boobah's were trippy enough, but when I saw a Rainbow change into an african-american kid who then broke out in an irish river dance did I realize that I had not done enough drugs to watch this.

Though I did get about 8 people on my floor playing with their web site at work. I think there is the PBS site and they have their own site. Both trippy in their own way.

Looks like a combo of a teletubby and Grimmace. ROFL

And a whoopee cushion...

And like I said, a veritable mountain of drugs.
