The Personalized Talking Astrolabe

The Personalized Talking Astrolabe is a clock-like gadget that has a lot of features.


Homer sees this in the shop Things Unnecessary and decides that he wants it. He buys it for himself for $500, the budget for the Christmas tree. After the family found out Homer was so selfish, it told him that it was not returnable. It then tests it's smoke alarm for three hours. After Homer steals all the presents from people, Snake steals the Astrolabe, still wrapped up, and runs off with it.
