Coffee Table Mantlet

For people who want to storm sofa forts
(+2, -2)
  [vote for,

The coffee table mantlet is a coffee table on large wooden wheels that looks very innocent.

However when a sofa fort is established people can lift off the top of the table, preserving whatever was on it, and unfold the base into a padded mantlet (a wheeled shield that provides cover from missiles during sieges). Kids can then wheel the mantlet back and forward, being careful to avoid carpet moats.

       I think you guys need your own special area to go play in (and which the rest of us can filter out).

       [DrCurry] Elizabeth the first didn't persecute priests in the U.S.. In fact, that's pretty much what we're all about (as you should know).
