'Oohh, sexy girlfriend!'

Keychain Why is it we find all the cool toys years after we could have really used them? First, it was the AC/DC action figures. Now, it's the Sixteen Candles talking key-chain. Dare I say classic?

I'm not the only one who thinks it's cool. This very item is selling on eBay right now. The latest bid: $26! (For an item that began in the auction for $5.)

According to the seller, the key-chain has a handful of phrases from "Farmer Ted" (Anthony Michael Hall) and one from "Long Duk Dong" (Gedde Watanabe):

  • "Take those ridiculous things off!"
  • "This information cannot leave this room. OK? It would devastate my reputation as a dude."
  • "I've never bagged a babe. I'm not a stud."
  • "Chill."
  • "Can I borrow your underpants for 10 minutes?"
  • "Oohh, sexy girlfriend"

If a key-chain isn't your style, how about a Sixteen Candles talking pen? It has the same phrases, but it's a little cheaper. (Right now, it sells for about $7.)
