+ 'it was on this day in 1847 the telephone was invented by alexander graham bell', craig ferguson informs us, 'no, thats not true. he was born on this day in 1847. no, he probably invented it a couple weeks after that... now, thats quite a feat what he did, how many other people invented something you cant live without? i never leave the house without three things: my phone, my keys, and my emerancy ball vacuum cleaner. because you never know when you are going to need the proper amount of suction. you know that people say, when alexander graham bell invented the telephone, his first words were 'come here, watson, i want you'. watson was graham bell's friend and, this is what he called him, his 'tinkering partner'. i think that when the tabloids caught them in the nineteenth century they called them 'tinkerbell'. i always wondered about this watson guy, that he knew how to answer the first telephone. if you had never heard a telephone before and this strange thing starts ringing, would you know what to do? i doubt it smartypants, i dont think you would! what should i do? this strange box is ringing, i'll pick it up and put it to my ear and do what it tells me!'
