Phone Votes Required - An Englishman's Bleg
You may remember that I publicised a book that was in preparation about amazing objects that make life worth living
This was my entry:
A telephone handset. Wonderful as they are for keeping us in touch with our family, friends and timeshare salesmen that is not why I have chosen it. It is no ordinary handset. It is an American one, it came from the command bunker of Greenham Common. It is through this handset that the coded orders would have passed that would have unleashed nuclear war. A few words listened to on it would have meant the end of civilisation as we knew it. We still face threats to our security but the black cloud of the Cold War hotting up which hung over a generation is now history. And that this telephone handset is no longer ready for use is something that makes life a lot better.
It has come to voting time now and I'm asking you to stoke my vanity by voting for it on their site. Voting continues until the 13th.
Remember Vote for The Phone, Thank you!
