If Autobots wage battle to destroy the evil forces in this chair, I’ll kick them back to Cybertron. Of all the goodies we found at the Alameda Flea Market last Sunday (among them a framed puzzle of naked women playing croquet), the Deceptachair cannot be topped. It was one of the on-the-way-out finds, and for a whopping $40, ($8 per function!) it truly wins the prize as the coolest Transformer ever.
The company that created this wonder of engineering was Stork Miller, a.k.a. Die Storchenmuehle, a German company that hit it big with car seats in 1969. It’s missing a foot bar and a seat belt, both minor items that can be easily replaced when the time comes (we hope) and if I’m really ambitious, I might replace the fabric on the chair and cushion.
I had all sorts of things I wanted to say about it, but I have to finish dinner, and honestly? You can see its awesomeness for yourself. So here’s a sample of all the Deceptachair’s uses. I don’t know if we’ll ever use it as a potty seat, but it’s worth having just for that.
