Car radiator grille blow-out

A huge party 'blow-out' on your car.
  [vote for,

(This idea came to me while half-asleep last night).

The front of many cars resembles a face, with the headlights as eyes and the radiator grille as the mouth.

So, this idea is to fix an outsized 'blow-out' (those paper things children get at parties - you blow into them and they unroll and make a noise) such that when activated (by the fan? - by exhaust gases? - I'm not sure) it sticks through the radiator grille and looks like the car is sticking its tongue out. Combined with the noise that blow-outs make this could replace the car horn.

       Destined for a top ten list. I didn't even finish reading the subtitle before I needed oxygen.   

       Actually useful in that it makes a great pressure gage.

       It would be ESPECIALLY functional when you're stuck behind those old grannies in traffic.   

       Although, it would end the tradition of referring to cars as feminine objects.

       Yesterday I saw a video someone had posted on Facebook of a car exhaust suffed full of Blow-Outs. When they started the car, they all extended and honked in a really pleasing way.
