Bat in the Hat

A bat in the hat is worth two in the cave...

A modified top hat with a birdhouse-like enclosure and a tunable radio transmitter. The Little Brown Bat inside is wearing a low- voltage, mild shock collar which is paired with the radio transmitter. The transmitter range can be tuned from 30-200 ft, and the bat is trained to respond to the gentle shocks by staying within the desired range. The purpose is, of course, to provide a zone of defense against pesky flying insects.

       A whimsical idea with practical value. [+]

       Here's my bun. It isn't quite as fresh as the bun I awarded to our friendly neighborhood Toasterman for 'Frog Hat', but I didn't think you'd mind.

       My bun is conditional on modifications to the top hat so it looks like a belfry. [+]

       Consider it so.

       Obligatory Christopher Moore quote:
  

       "Do you know how difficult it is to find Ray-Bans in a fruit bat medium?" (+)

       <pedantry> I believe the quote was "“Yeah, and don't think it's easy finding Ray-Bans in a fruit-bat medium." <\pedantry>

       Fruit bats can speak with the dead?
  

       NB fruit bats at a wild guess are not insectivores, but if you wanted to keep a cloud of pesky flying lychee away from you...

       Fruit bats also are not likely to fit in any but the very tallest stovepipe hats.

       Hat needs guano chamber to keep bat shit out of your hair.
  

       "As a manure, guano is a highly effective fertilizer due to its exceptionally high content of nitrogen, phosphate, and potassium, three nutrients essential for plant growth. " From Wikipedia
  

       I doubt the three do anything for hair growth.

       Who knows? Maybe that's the secret of Rogaine.
