A pen that explodes when someone tries to spell "magic" as "magick."

       As every single damn Microsoft product in the world is VBScript-enabled, it would be more feasible to propogate this idea to MSWord users via an MSOutlook email virus. The virus would attach scripts to MSWord which would detect the word 'magick' being typed and change the default annoying Office Assistant into a super-annoying Office Assistant Goblin.

Note that I do not approve of people actually writing viruses.

       Perhaps a pen with a pressure sensor and some high explosive, and when you chew on it, it explodes, blowing up your pen and in all likelihood, a large portion of your head.   

       Kind of... and anti-chewing mechanism...

       Shouldn't need a large blasting cap, but the smell of the nitroglycerin might be a dead[pun intended] giveaway. Just hope Dan Quayle doesn't decide to autograph something for the Orlando Magic [whew, that was close]. Nice knowin' ya. I hear the food's pretty good in Maximum Security Federal Penitentiaries.
