It's a giant robotic duck that just waddles around a plaza, open-air
market, or other public space. It has a sign attached to it advertising
its sponsor's products and/or services. Every now and then it emits a
loud quack, and a hatch opens up on the bottom and a pie (cherry,
banana cream, apple,
or key lime) drops out. The standard pie
assortment may be augmented with seasonal selections, such as
pumpkin or rhubarb.
People are sure to follow the duck around hoping for a chance to
secure the precious pie ejected from its mechanical cloaca, thus all
but guaranteeing attention to the sponsor. Attendants will doubtless
have to remain on site, both to restock the pies periodically and to
right the duck should it become trapped or fall over, but this is not
expected to be a significant logistical problem.

||You could also have a vending machine version where the
duck mouth is positioned so you can feed it money and the
pie comes out the back.
||I can hardly wait for the malf, the glowing red eyes and the subsequent "Pie-Crapping Mechanical Duck Massacre" headlines...
||Not terribly unlike something I posted some time
||For added irony, it could excrete chicken pies.
||To clarify, I'm envisioning this as more like one of
those wind-up duck toys rather than a realistic (albeit
enormous) facsimile of a member of family Anatidae.
Just in case there was any confusion.
||When dada ideas like these become so surreal that
they effectively fall into the realm of a mashup of
random thoughts, I start to lose interest.
||Hmmm... what was that, dear?
||The "crapping" part of the title bothers me. Why no
chocolate pudding pies? Also pie is almost always a
last choice dessert isn't it?
Perhaps this duck bot should have a soft serve
chocolate ice cream dispensing sphincter and then it
could come back around and sneeze rainbow
sprinkles onto its ice cream deposit. Imagine
stepping in duck poo and suddenly your shoe is
super cooled it would change your day especially in
the summer time.
Imagine seeing a group of hungry children with
spoons chasing a robotic duck.
||In St. Neots, there is a very long tradition of goose
(made of wicker, and worn by a person) who walks
around depositing small christmas gifts from an
undisclosed rearward orifice.
