Smart fridges seem destined for dick jokes.


#3

Bah. Back in my day we had to doodle dicks on small white boards attached with magnets. Kids theses days. They have it easy.

So if you were to ask your inventory-monitoring refrigerator, “Refrigerator, do you have any cream pies in there?”, its response might well surprise you.

Dick Doodles

Good name for a band.

Came here for Jin Yang reference. Leaving satisfied.

Dang! I was just at Home Depot, and I didn’t think to go make their fridge dirty. I feel so unfulfilled!


#9

This isn’t new; I have a couple of filthy minded friends who consistently did this to every IoT fridge at Home Depot for a month. Pretty good reason to lock down your Internet connection.


#10

When we remodeled our kitchen we looked at one of these fridges and said “but why??” Regardless of this sort of issue we still didn’t see the value it brought that our $35 pin board/ chalk board doesn’t give us.

or Dick Doodles, Private Eye. He’s one hard dick.


#13

They can lock down their Internet connection, but is the fridge smart enough to handle having its wifi connection knocked down, and then presented with a portable Pi up close spoofing the store wifi, and a website full of images?

Rule #1: If a dick can be drawn on it, a dick will be drawn on it. This is attested back to the ancient romans and egyptians. Some weird thing about the human psyche (cue the scene from Superbad?)


#15

Yes, and that includes dicks, too. Dickception.


#16

Dick doodles on the outside. Ingredients for dickerdoodles on the inside.

That reminds me. Alexa, add another dildo to the shopping list!

Silicon Valley, ftw.

Also, let me guess. This esteemed anonymous colleague also has a near-teenage son, who works hard in school, gets good grades, and would never possibly be implicated in drawing dick pics on the IoS-enabled fridge.

I mean, it must’ve been the construction workers.
