Shamelessly derivative

A clear glass or plastic sphere, closely resembling a snow globe. However, instead of snow, when shaken a cloud of volcanic ash is released, settling in a dense blanket over a realistic panorama of a town or city.

Available in Vesuvius, Pinatubo, Krakatoa, Mount St Helens, Mount Pelée, etc. etc.

Contains grimly realistic depictions of incinerated or suffocated victims.

Collect the complete set.

Warning: opening the globe may in some circumstances seriously disrupt commercial air transport. Dispose of in accordance with prevailing local legislation.

       ALL of the snowglobe ideas are already in existence. See links provided on previous one.

       What is this, a franchise?   

       //ALL of the snowglobe ideas are already in existence.   

       Au contraire, the orrery made up of snowglobes of each planet, a fractal snowglobe made up of infinite series of smaller and smaller snowglobes, the film Attack of the Killer Snowglobes and so on.

       a.k.a. Mount Redenbacher?

       As this is indistinguishable from existing snow globes, the solution is to distribute existing globes labeled "ash".   

       [xenzag], how can we tell which was previous?

       Snowglobe of snowglobes: a snowglobe large enough to use regular-sized snowglobes as grains of snow.

       Another version uses the cremated remains of a loved one; a snow globe/urn.

       How about a dandruff snowglobe?

       That idea would be head and shoulders above the rest ...

       (sound of trumpet going wa waa waah)   

       I was totally shocked to discover that (on the. subject of corny jokes) that Bob Monkhouse had one good joke...ahem (clears throat) "when I was young, I told people I wanted to be a comedian, and they laughed at me. Well, they're not laughing now".
