Khrushchev-esque shoe-related mechanical clock

Ideal for attracting tourists or something
  [vote for,

One of them huge clocks which they have for tourists. It has a door that opens on the hour and quarter hour and a mechanical figure/s come out as does stuff.

On the the quarter hours a little Khrushchev comes out and bangs a shoe on a table.

On the half hour a miniature journalist throws shoes at George Bush..that kind of thing

       This all fits in a cell-phone?

       Yes, it's amazing what companies can do these days.

       I hadn't actually seen a market for 5 foot x 5 foot mobile phones, but now you mention it, it's obvious...

       OK then - a little croissant will come out, too! +
xandram, Jun 20 2012

       Presumably, if it -does- actually fit into a mobile telephone, one would have to peer very closely to see the details?

       //have to peer very closely to see the details?   

       Is that what they mean by peer pressure?

       And at the end of the day it knocks down the statue of Saddam and beats it around the head with shoes?

       It can, but that's a special order, don't forget to tick that box on the order form.   

       I'm thinking on the hour a small Dorothy comes out in red shoes and says "there's no place like home.."   

       And at 16:03:37 a pair of little boots come out..

       What happens at 4:20 in the afteroon?

       //what happens at 4:20//   

       Obama comes out and puffs a joint?
xandram, Jun 21 2012

       //What happens at 4:20 in the afteroon   

       Well, at 24:01:41 the little boots get splattered with something red and are dragged offstage...to be replaced by a small Claudius..

       ...and has a small samizdat shredder/re-education camp vouchers dispenser to capitalise (irony) on the current shredder movement on hb.

       I met a man who had no shoes, so I watched while he waited to steal a pair from the statue.

              //what happens at 4:20//      

       The beginning of 'not much else for the rest of the day', typically.

       At about 6pm on a Sunday, small figures come out and play toss the horse-shoes, later joined by a small Hercules who does the same, but with the horse still attached..   

       At which point an equally small little man adjudicator comes out, pointing out it's not fair on the horse and also Hercules gets to throw four shoes at the same time.   

       Hercules replies "You cannot be serious!" and storms off MacEnroe stylee
