Achewood’s Phone Balls Have Become a Terrifying Reality
Chris Onstad's "Achewood" has often explored the concept of useless commercial products whose very existence diminishes us all, but few have had the resonance of the fake smart phone testicles he first imagined in a 2006 strip titled "Ana-Tomix nuts for your phone." It was a hilariously absurd concept that parodied that already hilariously absurd nature of Truck Nutz, and we all had a good laugh about it.
Well, hold on to your hat, because an off-hand joke that Onstad made about masculinity and commercialism and the way we express our deep, personal insecurities via the products that we believe define us has now come to life. That's right, you can now buy Phoneballs.
If you take a look back at the original comic, its prescience is almost disturbing. See this?
