Egg Clock

Clock in the form of an ovum with wiggling sperm

This clock is in the form of an ovum blown up wall-clock size. The time (hour only) would be indicated by the position of the germinal vesicle (the big blobby thing, I think), while the organelles (the little blobby things) would move around pretty much at random.

The sperm trying to fertilize the ovum would tick away the seconds around the outside, its (flexible) tail wiggling with each tick.

(Of course, before we went to market on this thing, we would consult some real microbiologists to get all the terms right, and maybe get a better picture.)
