Yellow Phones
« on: June 28, 2012, 05:51:08 PM »
Anyone want a few yellow phones?

Only 65 of them!

OOOPS, they have another auction with 53 more!

I don't think those are yellow phones, I think they're ash, white and dirty white.

Perhaps "yellowed phones" may be more technically correct.

I just noticed that they are located near here.  Maybe I should take a ride out there and load up on phones.  I can bring Dennis with me :D

I'll be glad to go with you, Larry.  But I don't intend on bringing any of those phones home with me.  They'll fit fine at your place.

Go get 'em.  Store them for about 25 years.  Some day those might even be collectible!

It would be interesting to find out where they're from.

It might add to the collectability and resale value on Ebay.

And I say that for marketing purposes they're "almond"

Yeah, Larry. He is willing to accept offers and I am sure he would be relieved at not having to pack & ship them all! Maybe everyone here could chip in and take one off your hands ;D
