Jewellery box appropriately designed for tacky bling

My mother used to keep her jewellery in a box which contained a ballerina figure, who would spin slowly in sync with the benign tink, tonk music, when the lid was opened.

Bling-Box is an updated version of this container, suitable for storing the tacky baubles of a fashionable, metro-man. When you flip open its lid, a downwardly facing woofer, hidden under the box, begins pumping out a relentless bassy rap, but it has other hidden delights to compliment the theme.

Instead of the demur ballerina, a pole dancing figure twirls into animated action as the contents of the box bounce up and down in response to the throbbing beat.

The Eagle pub on the City Road in London's Borough of Islington, has a section of these lyrics inscribed on one of its outside walls.... aren't you glad you know this? [xenzag, May 08 2007]

       //Not a body piercing idea? //

       Good one, [Noexit]...   

       Now, does anyone have any ideas for a device to remove the beer left in one's sinuses after snorting it out one's nose?

       cool [jutta], a rappin' jack in the box?
(btw, this idea was just lying around until I churned it with Pop goes the rapper.) I know [xenzag] is happy because he deserves it!

       I would suggest a straw, perhaps a Shop Vac.

       In motivational speaking and in the book "The Art of Motorcycle Maintenance", that configuration is a "monkey trap". (With the specifics of the monkeys and trap setters varying the way they do when people make stuff up.) A racoon trap similar to what you describe existed, but relied on a sharp nail to get the racoon stuck.
