how do you replace the batteries in your Type C clone? I tried looking everywhere (and I do mean everywhere) but I can't seem to find the little digety thing you press that makes the battery compartment open. I would ask the clone but for some reason, she's not talking to me.. (maybe it's the battery?)
ooh, also I was wondering if you have a poet clone? I would love to have him modeled on this guy I know named Carousal who writes these witty, clever and rhyming poems that always makes me wish I was talented enough to join him.

ps - Cari, you beat me too it. I have been trying for a month now to figure out a way to write a poem with the word "Acme" in the title and you did it.. They are my favorite company (thanks to the Roadrunner cartoons and poor Wiley E Coyote being their number one customer) and this poem is both funny, and fitting for the era we live in where sheep named Dolly can look in a broken mirror with no glass and still see themselves..
also, and this has nothing to do with your poem.. I enjoyed reading your article in Poetize.
Dreams do come true, you just have to have faith in them.
Dear Acme, I am very interested in your range of clones, however I wonder if you do a Magaret Thacher version? I could chase that little minx round the garden all day.

We are in receipt of your letter requesting a Margaret Thatcher clone; unfortunately this model has been recalled from existing customers and is no longer available. There were two faults with the product that our technical staff were unable to remedy, namely the model incessant arguing with their owners and subjecting them with a severe handbagging induced by them on uttering certain key words such as Michael Howard, Tony Blair, and most distressfully of all Geoffrey Howe.
However you may be interested in our Queen Mum clone as she is not very sprightly and considering your age rather easier to catch. She will of course demand the observance to the strict protocol conversant to her station. So when you have your evil way be sure to say ‘Wham Bam and Thank you MAM.
I remain Yours faithfully, W.D Forty, M.D, V.D and bar.
