This device resembles a pair of compasses, except that, in place of a pencil, the non-spike end has something like a very narrow safety razor.

You use it to shave concentric patterns on your corduroy trousers or jacket, and then claim extra-terrestrial origins for them.

Of course, if evil, you could use it to shave concentric patterns in someone else's corduroys while they slept.

       I don't own any corduroy, but I'd be more likely to if I knew I could lay my hands on a Corduroy crop-circle cutter...

       Brilliant idea. Quiz question: What was the race of microscopically small aliens in the Hitchhikers' Guide to the Galaxy called who arrived on Earth and were eaten by a small dog?

       From memory, the Hartravartid?

       or possibly the "Vl'hurg"....

       [pertinax] - if you get this working, you'd make a fortune in Camden Market.....quick - patent it !

       + cool, cuz I don't care for plain old regular corduroy.

       Too late!!

       Can it also be used on body hair?
Galbinus_Caeli, Aug 02 2006
  

       In that case, I think the person might wake up.

       The G'Gugvuntt and the Vl'hurg joined forces to attack Earth, and were swallowed by a small dog.

       [Spidermother], is spidermother what was said about the leaders' mother? Funny you should make that anno.

       But any corduroy circles expert would immediately notice the individual hairs are cut, instead of folded without breaking.   

       +, made me laugh.
zeno, Aug 02 2006
  

       Or simply cut crop semi-circles to create fully ventilated trousers, allbeit very stupid looking ones. [+]

       Nice! [+] I recommend using a moustache-trimming blade (link)

       "Pardon me, don't mind the noise- I have a hovering spacecraft in my pants."   

       "Oh, is that what the kids are calling it these days? Who knew?"
