As Chris says:
A flexible section of ship's speaking tube may be included, mounted where the occupant may easily reach and replace it. (Concealing the other end of the tube, complete with whistle, somewhere beneath seems best. If you know an audio person who can enclose the whistle in a structure that will give it a nice sound of distance, an otherworldly echo, or both, so much the better.) I can think of other elements that might be added, but a comfy chair requires a degree of comfortable, self-contained dignity that too many baubles might undermine (on the other hand, toys are fun), so it's probably best not to go overboard.
In this way you may comfort us all, as you often have in life, albeit only one or two at a time (probably also like life).
He goes on to suggest that the comfy chair travel to conventions in my place, perhaps present awards and so forth.
Personally, I think this is hilarious. I am now trying to decide if I think this is practical. What do you think?
