Chocolate + Records = Babe Magnet…

May 28, 2009

…well, perhaps in 1903.

Thanks to Wayne for this tip! (Warning – his blog is NSFW and Not Safe For Homophobes a great place to come to terms with your repressed homoerotic urges).

Now THATS Some Hot Chocolate@

Now THAT'S Some Hot Chocolate!

The two very rare tin phonographs pictured above were made in late 1903 and have to rank among the most unusual phonographs ever made: they were designed to play disk records made of chocolate! Made by the Stollwerck Chocolate company in Germany, the phonographs were powered by a tiny clock motor made by Junghans, a company still in the clock business today. Each machine measures a mere 8-1/2″ tall (including the horn), with a turntable barely 3″ in diameter.

    thanks for the shout out, gnosis!
    well, you called me half right.
    not safe for work? yep!
    but classic homophobia is fearing and hating homosexuality whilst secretly craving it.
    my site could be just what the homophobes NEED!
    LOL!
