Chicken Head Conning Towers

cluck, cluck, cluck
  [vote for,

Supplant the conning towers of some submarines with large brightly coloured chicken heads, that completely cover the existing structures.

These submarines would then cruise along just below the surface, with only the chicken heads fully exposed. At night, the heads would be brightly illuminated. Powerful speakers would supplement the spectacle of these nautical chickens by broadcasting a suitable range of loud clucking and crowing sounds, that would travel many miles across the sea surface.

This mad demonstration would take place instead of a show of force in international waters, but within easy surveillance range of any hostile state.

       Some situations require discrete observation without being observed. To accidentally do it this way would be regarded as a cockup.

       It's one of those ideas that is so pathetic that it would debase anyone making a comment. But at least it was in a vaguely relevant category.

       When the Loch Ness monster is discovered to be a mere cat, the thing to do would be to secretly populate the loch with occasional submarines, to keep interest up.

       It's highly unlikely that the Loch Ness Monster is a meerkat.
