Talking Carl

The other day we had a comic moment (a la Abbott and Costello) that featured Tilly and an iPhone app called ‘Talking Carl’. This comic moment will be lost on anyone not familiar with Carl, so before I started writing this post I did a little Youtube surfing to find some ‘Talking Carl’ background for those who don’t know ‘him’. You would not believe how much ‘Talking Carl’ stuff there is out there. I’ll share three typical examples of the three main ‘Talking Carl’ genres.

1) The Talking Carl App Review Genre

2) The ‘Look what I can do with the App’ Genre

3) And then there was Carl staring in a short film from L.A. genre (Okay, so there weren’t so many of these.)

So anyway, where was I?

Oh, that’s right… Tilly was talking to Carl the other day and stumbled into the perfect Threenager versus Carl interaction, and as soon as it started I couldn’t believe that this was the first time that she had slipped into this particular conversational blackhole.

Tilly: My name’s Tilly and your name’s Carl.

Carl: My name’s Tilly and your name’s Carl.

Tilly: No. MY name’s Tilly and YOUR name’s Carl.

Carl: No. MY name’s Tilly and YOUR name’s Carl.

Tilly: No. MY name’s Tilly and YOUR name’s Carl.

Carl: No. MY name’s Tilly and YOUR name’s Carl.

Tilly: No. MY name’s Tilly and YOUR name’s Carl.

Carl: No. MY name’s Tilly and YOUR name’s Carl.

Tilly: No. MY name’s Tilly and YOUR name’s Carl.

Carl: No. MY name’s Tilly and YOUR name’s Carl.

At this point Susie got a call.

ps There is a fantastic meta-post here just begging to be written, but I currently don’t have the brainpower to work out what it is (let alone write it). Feel free to tell me what it is though.
