One of the most useless, but decently selling redneck hall of fame gifts, Big Mouth Billy Bass, is getting reborn as a useful, high tech smart speaker. Some nerds like me had already integrated Alexa functionality into Billy Bass a couple of years ago, but now it looks like it will soon be a commercially available product.

Honestly, if you have the classic version of one of these, you are either someone who loves to fish, loves to annoy people, or were the victim of a white elephant gift from your company Christmas party. However, having one of these giving useful information is actually much funnier than the "Take me to the River" song we all know and hate. I'm not much of a fisherman, but I wouldn't mind having one of these myself...hint hint.

They'll start shipping Saturday and you can pre-order one here.
