Someone on the RD forum suggested a "new product" which involved a pull string doll of Richard Dawkins that says quotes whenever you pull the string.

Unfortunately, due to my imagination, I couldn't resist doing a variation of that idea. But instead of a pull string, it's a plush, and when you poke/click on different parts of him, he says different things.

Of course, his design is loosely based on the characters from my math flash, The Octahedron.

Unfortunately, I don't get around a lot, and don't know where to find audio of his quotes.

This is brilliant! I've spent a good few minutes looking through all the quotes, and they never fail to entertain me. However I can't find the "Hatemail" quote people have been metioning in the comments. I'll probably find it as soon as I post this, but where do I click for that one?
I think possibly my favourite Dawkins quote is in orangelion90's signature: "There's this thing called being so open-minded your brains drop out." :giggle:

Brilliant quotes, and lovely animation!

As for audio, a lot of his lectures are available on Youtube or DVD, and a good number of his books have audiobooks read by him. You can probably get most of the latter from your local library if it's a good one, and if not, they're on iTunes. If you still can't get them, oh well, it's still great!

Nobody is safe from being chibified. I love the quotes (especially him reading his "fanmail") though I'm more of a Christopher Hitchens fan myself.

This is awesome! I hope you share it on RD's site, I'm sure many people would be touched.

The quote about being offended can be found in the youtube video of him at UC Berkley if that's any help to you. (I wouldn't know, I'm a techological-ignoramus)

Yes, I already put it on the RD forum. I think a few people find it amusing.

I did also find that video quote on youtube, and that's where I got it from, but I was hoping it was written down somewhere so that I wouldn't have to make a fool of myself and mistranscribe what he was trying to say.

That already happened with the hatemail bit, and I was told it was already transcribed.

Brilliant work, both meaningful and insightful quotes but there is also an air of comedy to it.

Excellent piece one of your better works no doubt.

Well, this is awesome. Where'd you get the coding for this?

I made it myself. Compared to some other stuff, it's actually not all that hard.
