Butterfly Phone

Swish! Swish! Click! Hello?

You are milling around among a large number of people, and a cell phone rings. Everyone draws, some pushing buttons, some extending antennae, some flipping open their pieces.

They all begin to put their phones away, only to stare in awe as you pull out the butterfly phone. Using the same principle as the super-fly illegal-in-NY-state butterfly knife, the phone is flip-flip-flippped into position, with a microphone in one handle, and a speaker and buttons in the "blade"(not bladelike in the least). A motor extends a small antenna out of the top 2 seconds after activation.(While everyone is still staring).
