Wait, wait... don't tell me it's 6am!
Are you an NPR fan who has trouble waking up in the morning? Because if so, we've got exactly what you need, straight from CMP fave Tocky
Tocky is that silicone-skinned alarm clock
that makes it pretty much impossible for you to hit the snooze button and go back to sleep. How? By rolling off your bedside table, falling to the ground, and trundling off across the floor.
This version of Tocky includes nine different, witty phrases from NPRs Wait, Wait... Don't Tell Me! host Peter Sagal and announcer Carl Kasell, in addition to a crazy alarm that will force you into consciousness in a slightly less erudite way.
If you like the idea of chasing your alarm clock but don't want to hear either of those sounds, you can always wake up to the song of your choice by uploading up to two hours of your own MP3s using the included USB cable. You can even record your own voice, although for me, my son yelling would probably get me out of bed the fastest.
If you prefer a regular alarm clock, it can be programmed to sit quietly on your table, waking you up as politely as NPR's All Things Considered
. We're also pretty sure it won't ask you for money either way. ~Delilah
