My boyfriend's 30th birthday is Sunday, and he insisted that he didn't want a party, or presents, or any fuss.   (le sigh)  Anyway, I wanted to get him something small in addition to taking him & his brother, visiting from out of state, out to this cool older theater for a B movie marathon.  Two things you gotta know about him -- he is truly hard to buy for and he is a total goofball.  You know how the Aqua Teen Hunger Force is a group of crime-fighting fast food?  He decided there should be a group like that for computer science (he's a CS professor), to attract more people to the field, so he came up with the Happy Time Computer Gang, which consists of computer components who dance, sing, and have a great time, with the monitor being the ringleader.   Roll Eyes boys. 

So I had to tell you guys all that for this guy to make sense.  This is the monitor, the leader of the Happy Time Computer Gang, who has yet to be named:



Here's a side view...not that there is much to see, except his teeny arms made of pipe cleaners. 



He's so basic that he barely looks like anything, but I was pleased that I came up with a unique gift that I really think he will enjoy.  His students will probably have a few laughs over it too!   Grin

OMG, that is so funny.  I saw the little moniter and thought \"That reminds me of Meatwad from Aqua Teen Hunger Force for some reason\" before I even read your post!!  It is really cute!
