MockThigh Hand Dryers

Wet toilet hands? Not anymore

Replace wasteful towel dispensers and hopeless hot air dryers with lifesize moulds of actual thighs covered in the fabric of your choice.

Co-ordinate with your lavatory, change to suit your mood.

Save frustrated minutes of dryer angst and years of wear, tear and questionable soiling on the actual trousers you end up drying your hands on anyway.

This Kylie? http://www.kylie.com/
Note the pink pop up (You nasty boys) [reensure, Nov 07 2001]

       I'm guessing the celebrity thigh moulds will be popular. And why stop at thighs?

       Of course if actually was Kylie herself I'd never wash my hands again.

       This would also lead to a new flowering in men's legwear fashion, as no longer would our choice of trousers be dictated by the requirements of absorbancy and not showing wet hand marks. Now leather, PVC, velvet, velour, gold lame, become practical at last!

       And in restaurants, instead of putting napkins out at the tables, there should be lifesize molds of actual arms covered in the sleeve material of your choice.

       Stew, that should be for runny noses everywhere as well.

       Who's Kylie, anyway? Are you talking about Kylie Minogue? I thought she stopped being famous ages ago...

       She recently started being famous again, but in a more sexy sort of way.

       what stupop said.

       Or terrycloth nappies?
