Ellis Tarrant, Claims Adjuster: Fine, fine, your Viagra
claim is approved. Please, don't share any more details. Now, what's
this item here: a Sling Media SlingBox Classic?
Jack Wise, Claimaint:
Uh, yeah, that's this thing that you plug into your TV and hook up to
the Internet, so you can watch your TV from any web browser. You can
change channels with it, or watch stuff recorded on TiVo, complete with
fast-forwarding, setting up season passes, and all that. Oh, and the
Sling Media people are starting a video-clip-sharing site, and they got
the NHL on board, so I won't get sued when I post clips of my favorite hockey brawls. It's pretty remarkable, this SlingBox thing.
Ellis Tarrant, Claims Adjuster: Sure, sure. But it doesn't sound like a medical device to me.
Jack Wise, Claimaint: No, it totally is. It's medically necessary. I'm a TV addict.
Ellis Tarrant, Claims Adjuster: You've got to be kidding me. No, there's no way -
Jack Wise, Claimaint: AAAGH! Listen, listen, you got a trash can or something I can puke into?
Ellis Tarrant, Claims Adjuster: What? What's wrong? Why are you shaking like that?
Jack Wise, Claimaint: It's been two hours since I've watched any TV, and I'm - I'm going through - withdr- GLLLUUUGGGGHHAAAGGGHHH
Ellis Tarrant, Claims Adjuster: Oh, gross! My God! That's nauseating! This is a $400 pair of shoes!
Jack Wise, Claimaint: Sorry, I tried to aim for the floor. (sobbing) I just, I just can never do anything right - like Dad always said - I just wish, I just wish I was dead - (sob)
Ellis Tarrant, Claims Adjuster: Look, uh, look, I guess we can approve the SlingBox. But there are two conditions.
Jack Wise, Claimaint: Yeah? Really? What?
Ellis Tarrant, Claims Adjuster: Get me one, too. And clean up this mess.
