  5. Oh my god, I need to track one of these phones down! It's too cool and should be used for a Jay Leno segment...

    Obviously the overseas toy manufacturer meant to translate the words to read "Being Girl" but somehow printed "Benign Girl" -- a cancer free cellphone for girls... kinda funny, too, because there's so much press about how cellphones may cause brain tumors due to radiation from batteries.

    I'll see if I can find one on eBay...

  6. I got more information on the phone... "Benign Girl" was intended to mean "sweet" or "harmless" -- the toy company has a companion phone for boys called "Naughty Boy"

    I tried to code the URL here as a hyperlink to show the image but the code wouldn't be accepted so I'll paste it here:
