Egorrery is a hat with an orrery built in to it, the sole purpose of which is to confound any critics who might foolishly venture; "You just think you're the center of the universe", inviting you to press a button on your hat, which opens a small hatch, out of which arises your orrery, with you naturally at its centre.

       And I thought this was just another way to store leftover eggs in the fridge.

       This makes me feel kind of ignorant, I have no clue what an orrery is. I have to go look this one up.   

       (Edited, about 5 minutes later)Ah, now I understand. Bun for the idea, and the new vocabulary word.

       + I didn't even know my hat was missing.   

       Isn't it one of those chocolate biscuits? ho ho.

       This is a wonderful idea, finally I can prove everyone right.

       I thought this was going to be a covered garden in which one raised assistants for mad scientists.

       Wow - I can tell the linked page is artistic because it has no capital letters.   

       I still think it would be better if it popped out a hat- hatch, as per [xenzag].

       Yes, the absence of a hat caused me a degree of disappointment too, but nevertheless credit where it's due and I'm happy to be its recipient! ha
