My boss at work was telling me this story today.. he knew some kid in middle school that made something he called the "Contari" -- it looked EXACTLY like an Atari, but it was made out of construction paper and only cost $1. His selling point was simple - buy one and he didn't beat you.

We think that Brad (our boss) had 5 or 6 of these before he finished middle school.

(If you don't think this is funny, try reading it out loud to someone. This seems to amplify the hilarity about 5000%)
