Virtual Wife Nags Via Email
The Virtual Wife service offered by Metaboinfo is intended to help pudgy salarymen get rid of those extra inches around the middle.
(Virtual Wife choices (2 of 4 shown))
Here's how Virtual Wife works: First, select from among 4 virtual wives. Then enter your height, weight and lifestyle habits - and don't forget your name and email address.
Then you will receive four emails every day, nagging you not to eat too much - all in a voice that is appropriate for the character you selected.
You can even type in the name that you prefer for your Virtual Wife. How about "Stella?"
Classic Star Trek fans of course remember hapless Harry Mudd, entrepreneur and android salesman. He surrounded himself with beautiful android girls, and then made a copy of his actual shrewish wife just for fun.
"I had the androids construct an exact replica of Stella, so that I could gaze upon her... and rejoice in her absence. Gentlemen – attend: (clears his throat) Stella, dear."
(mechanically at first) "Har-court! Harcourt Fenton Mudd! Where have you been? What have you been up to? Nothing good, I'm sure – well, let me tell you, you lazy, good-for-nothing–"
(Stella winding down) "– thing, thing, thing..."
(Mudd laughs) "Marvelous! I finally have the last word with her... and with you."
Update: Take a look at a compilation of Stella Mudd highlights from Star Trek's I, Mudd episode.
I wonder if your Virtual Wife will accept emails?
