With the growth of miniaturization, it must now surely be possible to bring into being a battery-operated device which can be hidden within a fullsome beard, and which causes a small cuckoo to emerge therefrom, briefly and sonorously, on the hour.

       With the growth of micro-miniaturization, it must now surely be possible to make a a battery-operated device which can be hidden within a fullsome real beard, and which causes a small cuckoo (with battery-operated false beard) to emerge therefrom, briefly and sonorously, on the hour ?

       I thought this would be about a type of beard that takes up residence on another persons chin.
Ian Tindale, Mar 07 2017
  

       But surely that's the norm, [Ian]? I mean, a beard has no chin of its own.
MaxwellBuchanan, Mar 07 2017
  

       He's got a point you know, [Ian].

There was an Old Man with a beard,
Who said, "It is just as I feared!—
Two Owls and a Hen, four Larks and a Wren,
Have all built their nests in my beard.

       This device that causes a small cuckoo to emerge - presumably we're referring to an actual live cuckoo, and behind it or underneath it, a battery operated cuckoo ejecting mechanism (which becomes attracting some time after, in good time for the next cuckoo ejection event). The cuckoo impeller would also have to feature a prodder, in such a way as to cause the sound to emerge from the cuckoo just after the impelling thrust is applied.

       Could such a device also be tucked away in a certain recently-elected coifed leader's hair? Or if more space were needed, inside the hollow cavity between his ears?

       No need, Jeremy Corbyn already has a beard.

       I assume there will be versions of this essential invention suitable for armpit and pubic hair?

       //I assume there will be versions of this essential invention suitable for armpit and public hair?//   

       A few years ago, microsoft suddenly created hundreds of newsgroups with names like microsoft.pubic.directx   

       I think you've just made the opposite mistake.
Loris, Mar 08 2017
  

       Oops yes, corrected now - and you're right, the opposite error is much more common
hippo, Mar 08 2017
  

       Although, public hair… there might be a demand?
Ian Tindale, Mar 08 2017
  

       More likely an injunction...

       + I happen to like this nonsense.   

       hopefully it can be disabled whilst sleeping!
