Keyboard for Blondes

What do you get for the fair-haired girl who has everything? This aggressively pink Keyboard for Blondes. Outfitted with the latest technology and lamest of stereotypes, for a mere $50, you too can own this openly misogynistic input device. Quoth the marketing copy:

The all-pink keyboard swaps out standard keys with funnier, dumber key names. The backspace key now says "Oops!" and the entire row of function keys spells out USELESS KEYS. Hit the "$" sign and you get the sound of a cash register clinking.

Blondes can even get a little technical and use special keys that type out "OMG," "ALI" (Absolutely Love It!) or "XOXO." My favorite? The caps lock key now says: "Warning! size XXL letters."

Who says geeks don't understand women? Oh, right. Women do.
