Chihuahua ballistic armour

ideal defence against steam driven cats
 
(+2, -2)

I envisage a largish metal coil, on its vertical axis with wheels on. Chihuahuas are strapped in an interlocking pattern to provide protection against projectiles, up to and including stream driven cats.

Obviously rigorous testing will be required to properly assess how many chihuahuas are needed to stop the projectiles, and some way to not to stand in the dog poop that will inevitably build up around the cylinder.

A testing program of several years may very well be required, in which case the number of chihuahuas and cats would be depleted, obviously to universal regret...

       Reactive armour would be SO much better in this design ...

       Only if you wear the first one. Have you ever known many chihuahuas and their owners? I wouldn't wear one if I knew it would save my life.

       Catamarans?

       It's probably guaranteed to do so, as no one in their right mind would come close with all the yapping and dog poo...

       Doesn't seem very practical to me.

       //Doesn't seem very practical to me.   

       Ok....if we were to go for an inner layer of Chihuahuas, with an outer layer of chameleons, the stealth factor might improve the practicality?   

       Also there is a close-in support version, with a form-fitting mesh that goes under a shirt, with hamsters attached.

       an idea consisting solely of "let's torture chinchillas and cats". NOR: (original, funny, idea, interesting)   

       EDIT: it's funny and it stays

       //I submit that a chihuahua is not a chinchilla   

       I have it on divine authority that the Capybara is a fish, so you never know...   

       // an idea consisting solely of "let's torture chinchillas and cats". NOR: (original, funny, idea, interesting)   

       Not a word about the chameleons, I notice. That's so chameleonist...

       Would that be counted as miraculous, and lead to my canonisation?

       You mean stuff you full of black powder and an iron ball and then light the fuse? Yes, sure, no problem.

       Reminds me strangely of being married...

       //a girlfriend who desperately wants a pet rabbit   

       Not much meat on a rabbit, she'd be better off with something bigger.

       A capybara ?

The hamsters are bred to have mithril coats, I presume?

       //A capybara ?   

       Hmm, a steam catapult to send capybara to areas short on fish for Lent, now that's an idea..   

       Anyway, currently working on the NMR Inc steam-driven mouse interceptor battery. Upon the radar picking up incoming steam-driven cats a screen of high-velocity mice is ejected.   

       Comes with optional chaff dispensers (fluffy things on a bit of string, laser pointers etc)
