I just tend to go with "pretend it doesn't exist".

Except for the candy aisle at the supermarket, it doesn't.

These are hilarious, Munsi. Great work!
Now, what can we do so that you don't sound like you're in a tin cup?

I pass these along to co-workers who don't "get" the Drabblecast.

I'm the least techy pewrson here, but I did notice when using a WavePad sound editor to record, that there are several sampling rate settings, from like 2200 to 40000, and you need to be about 20000 to get nontinny audio.

Yes, you need to get a nice woody sound to your voice. Not tinny...

Try saying woody words, like corn, caribou, or erogenous zones...

Just got caught up. I have a new resolution to wish people a happy Earth Day by proceeding it with "By your powers combined...". Also instead of "Good-bye", I will say "The Power Is Yours"
