Celebrity- Based Calculator Poll - John W Kercheval - 12-20-2014 03:53 PM

If you could pick one celebrity and had to design a calc based on his or her celebrity aura who would it be and why?

For example, you may pick Donald Trump if you wanted a particularly luxurious calc using fine woods and leathers that would only appreciate in value.

Or Jennifer Love Hewitt if you wanted a sleek sexy calc but with little going for it "under the hood."

Or Hillary Clinton if you wanted a calc with universal appeal that could solve a nearly unlimited level of high level calculations with 100% precision and accuracy but required simpler calcs to drill down the the finer levels of detail.

Mr. Spock

(or, somewhat better looking and very smart in real life: Senator Padmé Amidala).

The Kim Kardashian Kalc: has really big BUTTons.
The Paris Hilton Calc: diamond-studded, jewel-encrusted, doesn't do anything
The Miley Cyrus Calc: its cover keeps falling off
The Pamela Anderson Calc: shows up in a different drawer every night (also available in a male version, the Billy Bob Thornton edition)
The George Foreman Calc: most of its keys have identical labels, but it grills great hamburgers.

The Ronald Reagan Calc: can't remember the operands
The Google Calc: can't forget the operands

The Congressional Budget Office Calc: only uses imaginary numbers
The Alan Greenspan Calc: only uses irrational numbers (with exuberance!)

If only I could model the calculator around my wife.
Apparently, it would know every "bloody" thing
