Clockwork Orange Juice Dispenser

For unco-ordinated small children
  (+7, -1)

  [vote for,

A clockwork machine that holds a (open) carton of juice, so that when small children want a drink all they have to do is turn the key (and put their cup there). This would have to come with restrictions on it, so that over-enthusiastic kids don't overwind it and end up pouring out all the juice, or so that they only get half cups at a time.

Inspired by a certain 7 year old who managed to tip the last carton of red orange juice in the house all over the kitchen.

       From what I've seen of juice dispensers in cafeterias, school and otherwise, that little "(and put their cup there)" is an oft-overlooked step.   

       You'll still be mopping up!

       Depending on where you put the emphasis, the title brings up an image of naked ladies in a milk bar.

       Well, I thought of it as like a 'Wallace & Gromit'-esque invention, although I have no idea why. Must've watched that darn movie too many times.

       //red orange juice // isn't there some kind of contradiction there

       No, as in orange the fruit, but the type of oranges used in the juice that I drink are coloured red, therefore, 'red orange juice'.

       silly me!

       I was expecting a lame echo. Pleasantly surprising. [+]
