Modifying A PlayStation
28 December 1996
I'm Phoning Honey, the wonderful prankster who uses the phone for fun.
With the Christmas season all-but dead, I have one final opportunity to (Christmas) present you with my latest phoning ruse.
If I never see you again, I hope you have a very good New Year, and an even better 1964! As ever, the naming of the shops differs from the reality to protect the innocent lives.
"STELLAR GAMES", NORTH LONDON
US: Happy foetus! Merry Christmas!
US: Right. I run a youth club for disadvantaged children, and I'm trying to get hold of a Saturn or a PlayStation for them.
SG: I see. Well, we stock both.
US: I know you do, God bless you. But do you do modifications?
SG: How do you mean, modifications? We do conversions...
US: See, we've got a few kids in the club who are a bit high-spirited, and we need to get the thing "converted" so that they can't damage it.
SG: I don't understand. Converted how?
US: Is there any way, if I buy a console off of you, that you can weld it into a steel frame?
SG: What? How so?
US: Can you not do that? Weld a PlayStation into a heavy-duty steel cage.
SG: I wouldn't have thought so! Where are we supposed to get a heavy-duty steel cage from?
US: Oh I can supply that.
SG: Heh. You have a lot of cages lying around do you?
SG: No, I'd have to speak to the manager, but I can tell you now that isn't the sort of thing we do.
US: But these kids need hope. How can you be so heartless?
SG: Well... sorry.
US: OK, will you let me come in and weld the cage out the front of the shop. I'll be real quiet.
