Disco Nunchaku

UV reflective, LED-studded Nunchaku.

I learned, painfully, to use nunchaku many years ago with a hardwood set (signed by the late Pat Morita) ...which I may or may not still possess given their illegality in my jurisdiction.

These message-signalling mobile 'phones (where you jiggle the unit above your head and it appears to spell out Hi!, or some such inanity aimed at some disinterested babe / hunk / fellow desperado on the other side of a crowded club) seem wholly inadequate to me.

What's needed, if you want to send a decent sonnet or a bit of Valentine's Wagster Chaucer across a room is a bit of *area*, such as the large circular area that results from rapidly twirling nunchaku.

It would also be possible to program the LED display to form a large set of lips blowing a kiss, a picture of a rose or a puppy - or a large copy of your latest report from the clinic attesting to your STD free status.

They are still somewhat obscure, thank Zeus, but they are called "Message Wands" in some places. I don't see a 'chucks version. (How the heck do I even know about these things?) [baconbrain, Mar 01 2010]

       Let me guess, you are single, right?

       No, middle-aged grumpy old married fart actually :) Would never use this device myself, it's just a twirl of fancy - taking something as silly as a mobile phone message signaller and poking fun at it by taking the concept to an extreme. Plus it gave me a chance to name-drop, in a pathetic attempt to link myself to someone famous.

       I haven't tried twirling nunchaku in a club, but I expect that 20-stone bald bloke with the bomber jacket and the radio in his ear might have something to say about it. I would futher suggest that if you are using them to broadcast soppy messages in pseudo middle english, a word from the aforementioned goon may hurt a bit more than it might otherwise.

       Properly dressed, in a peach and lime Elvis disco suit and twirling a set of fluffy white fur nunchaku creating red letter love poems in the air.... who's going to touch you? [Sillie queynte] :0)

       Sounds Suitable for a Electric Six video.

       //illegality in my jurisdiction//   

       I'm intrigued. Two sticks joined by a chain or cord are illegal? That is bizarre.

       As someone trained in their usage, I assure you that nunchaku can be whipped around at very high and dangerous speeds.
