3D Printer
I just can't wait for the Better Homes and Gardens list of helpful tips for household reuse of sixteen-inch acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene phalluses.
Title text: I just can't wait for the Better Homes and Gardens list of helpful tips for household reuse of sixteen-inch acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene phalluses.

Explanation

Jeff's explanation:

It is true. 3D Printers are starting to get better and better. As the comic suggests, just don't put them online like fax machines.

In the image text, Better Homes and Gardens is an American magazine that as the name suggests, shows you how to make your home and garden better.

Also in the image text, acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene or ABS is a light-weight and moldable plastic which makes it perfect for 3D printers.

Godammit, that refill cartridge was expensive too. Davidy²²[talk] 09:22, 9 March 2013 (UTC)

Wouldn't this completely invert their targeted market? 162.158.177.11 18:07, 28 February 2016 (UTC)

Four years later... 3D printers cost $400 and they are found hardly anywhere. 625571b7-aa66-4f98-ac5c-92464cfb4ed8 (talk) 22:47, 7 March 2017 (UTC)
