Baseball Cap Sprinkler Curtain

conversation stopper/starter
  [vote for,

Any time you want to disengage from a conversation, (or to startle those in close vicinity) simply activate your Baseball Cap Sprinkler Curtain. This results in a continuous fan of fine droplets of water being emitted from the row of nozzles embedded in outside edge of the cap's projecting peak. You can hide behind this spectacle, or if you have a long enough tongue (very long) you can stick it out, interrupting the flow and adding even more drama.

The reservoir and pumping apparatus to facilitate this activity are stored in a convenient backpack. Mosquito destroying agents may also be introduced to the water to add to the general functionality. A crowd may be dispersed by turning up the pressure, as this creates an even wider circle of deployment, but of course this action also quickly drains the reservoir.

Baseball Cap Sprinkler can also be used to water a small lawn in mid-summer by walking about or pirouetting if you're more adventurous.

Inevitable deluxe version facilitates the generation of coloured liquid curtain variations, via sets of bright leds that are also located in the peak.

       You know, it has just occurred to me. I’m familiar with what a baseball cap is, youth culture wears them all the time, and has done for decades. There must also be something called “baseball” for there to be a cap of it (or for it). I wonder what this might be? A ball that is the base of something, like the base of a tree or base of a pyramid? A ball that acts as the base of some kind of operation, such as how many newspapers were based in Fleet Street until they weren’t. A ball that is actually based on something, like fact or fiction or an economy being based on leaves. I suppose I’ll just go back to my prior assumption that it was a curious but meaningless name to give a hat with only a peak at the front and no brim elsewhere. It could have been called an emittersphere hat, and it’d have been just as abstract and sufficient.

       Don't be silly, [Ian]; a baseball cap is a rule to prevent excess in baseball. Baseball itself is a numbering system where the digits run from zero to ball-minus-one. If not capped at, say, 49, the value of "ball" would rise too high, destabilizing the system. A sprinkler makes a very sensible addition. [+]
