TOTP - Top Ten Office Chaos Causing Products

Its Friday everyone, and if you are like us on a Friday in an office, then working is the last thing on your mind. After an extended lunch break in the pub you are probably all sitting around with nothing better to do but read this. Well you don't have to be bored any longer, those nice people from Firebox have sent a list of ten things you might want to get hold of to cause as much mayhem as possible in that drab dreary grey office you reside in:-

"Oh no" we hear you cry "I could have afforded one of those if I didn't spend that five pounds at lunchtime on a drink". Well fortunatly the people at Firebox are offering every Top of the Pods listener a free five pounds gift voucher, so head over to www.firebox.com/topofthepods, punch in the old email address and you'll automatically get sent a five pound gift voucher. How cool is that?

I hope they're sending you some freebie big boys' toys to play with after giving them that plug...

Hope to listen by Sunday - no time at the mo :-(

Airzooka...cool.
Toys...fun stuff, can't go wrong there.
Good show, enjoyed it.
Checked out all the links too.
Gap *between* Top......Ten is best. Possibly because it's a bit of a teasing moment? Like...when is the ten coming? Now? How about now?...
Firebox should send you *some* stuff to play with for plugging their site, so if they are reading...do the right thing chaps, eh. :-)

I'm definitely getting one of those helicopters. :D

I do actually have a radio control helicopter already, it was a build-it-yourself kit, and it turn out pretty big (too big to fly inside) and I've never successfully managed to get it off the ground, as it's very difficult to control.

I might get an airzooka as well

Bazza said...

There that's my Bladerunner II ordered. :)

PH said...

Megazooka...wow. Won't be long before Firebox stocks that too I shouldn't wonder :-).
How about Firebox sends you guys a couple of Airzookas (or Megazookas if available) and you have a show where you randomly and entirely gratuitously Airzooka one another without warning or due care and attention?
(Don't know what that would do to the mic though :-), may not be practical).

JH said...

We SO have to get some Airzookas! Will have to check what the P&P to USA is, though... :(

Another good show! Have a blast at podcastcon!

sam smith said...

Oh that new logo, must not have refreshed before. Kind of looks like it says 'Dolly Top Ten Lists'.

Argh! The spoilers! The spoilers!

diane s said...

i know, anonymous- don't look directly at them! xx

Grant - Three From Leith said...

Oooh - the new logo !! How about changing the rest of the colour scheme to match ??

And make the logo bigger - the show name and strapline don't stand out too well at that resolution.

BTW - who were those two strange men getting in on the act in the PodcastConUK photos ? ;-)

TomTheTrucker said...

Great Logo Jon And Rob. I Think Its Excellent For You That You Have Teamed Up With Firebox, Lets All Hope You Get Some Money Out Of It

podcastpaul said...

Great meeting you lads... How tall is Rob - or is it John? Blimey you two are like Ant and Dec, I can't remember who's who!

Gordon said...

Huzzah! Used my voucher from Firebox.

Now to wait for me toys to arrive...

Liking the classy logo, guys.

It's all too much... It's like not looking at the answers to a crossword when they're right in front of you.... I'm trapped in a spoilers vortex....... ;-)

tite logo u guys

Bazza said...

What did you buy gordon?

I can't wait to get my helicopter. :D

Gordon said...

I bought the triple-fold duct tape wallet and a tree keyring, I'm ashamed to say.

I'm a student, as much as I'd love a helicopter I can't afford it, even with £5 off! Maybe Jon&Rob could forward the used helicopter to me once they're finished with it...:P

What's everyone else bought?

Top Of The Pods said...

The Airzooka is on the way - I think the big J is ordering one too. Once we both have one we'll probably just do a show about that as everyone needs an Airzooka in their life.

Please claim your voucher and firebox might seriously send us that helicopter. I'm sitting here humming the Airwolf theme tune to myself, but its no substitute to some nice people popping a review model in the post for me and Jon to pilot round the TOTP studios...

Bazza said...

Just been informed that my helicopter has been despatched using citylink. I'm not keen on them though, as they always deliver when no one is in and I have to travel 30 miles to the nearest depot to pick it up.

Gordon said...

Ooh, order arrived, and I got a free packet of sweets and all.

Easily excitable? Yes, I am. But I'll be using firebox again, I'm sure [when I have money].
