When asked "What time is it Mr Wolf" the clock will tell you the correct time" in a wolfy kind of voice. The only drawback is that occasionally he might answer "it's dinner time"and chase after you with tickling claws and a strange laugh.

A robot suitable for wolf's clothing? http://www.cim.mcgill.ca/~arlweb/scoutii/

       Certainly fits the half-baked spirit. It would have an hour claw and a minute claw, no doubt.

       I'd like to know what a wolfy sort of voice sounds like

       I wonder if anyone's hacked an AIBO to turn it into a werewolf? (A web search turns up nothing.) Maybe attach razor-sharp fangs to its jaws. That would be a worthy application of robot technology; perhaps add some computer virus so it could bite other AIBOs and infect them too. (Alternative: a were-scooter Segway/Ginger/It, not at all baked in the movie Ginger Snaps, which just featured a werewolf called Ginger)

       Sounds a bit scary to me. Unless it was a large cuddly kind of wolfy with soft paws and glow in the dark teeth!

       Po: Maybe something a bit like this "It'sss arghalf passst seven"

       Gizmo: Does the wolf have a stammer or has it been imbibing at the Bachanalian Shrine?

       Be careful or it may blow your house down.
