Fun with chat roulette

So I've been aware for a few weeks that there's this site called Chat Roulette where you can webchat, with video and audio, with random strangers from all over the world. I finally decided to check it out. I quickly realized I had less than zero interest in chatting with random strangers who mostly were a) jacking off on camera or b) asking me to show my titties.

So I decided to let Tux, my giant stuffed penguin, have a go at it instead. I used CamTwist to give him a friendly caption: "Hi, I'm Tux. Have a nice day." Then I sat just off-camera and watched the fun, with outgoing audio disabled. I occasionally made Tux wave, nod, or wiggle, but never changed the caption or typed anything into the chat.

This little diversion was way more fun than it had any right to be. Here are a few screenshots.

(Note: My screenshots are worksafe, but the Chat Roulette site itself is most definitely not.)
