I understand "Whimsey" is all the rage but this is just silly and stupid and way over the top. They say on their site "to brighten up your 9 to 5" but I think I would be a little frightened to carry this into the office. It's not office-chic, in my opinion. While I do think there is a place for "playful" in the workspace, when surrounded by a bunch of user-centered designers and presented with a non-functional keyboard on a bag... yeah, not so cool. Now if I actually could type using my bag while my computer takes 20 minutes to start up, that might be cool. But then why would I have my iPhone?

Things that make you go hmmm....
