Zardoz is a 1970's science fiction film directed by John Boorman and staring Sean Connery. It's laughably kitsch, but worth watching for the single line that "the gun is good but the penis is evil" if for no other reason.

The film features a large stone head, that may be identified as the character of Zardoz.

It is this head to which the idea refers, with the invitation to dry your hands in the hot air streaming from its gaping mouth, when used as a bathroom appliance.

It's best to view the simple illustration that describes the new product.

       I want mine with odd breath.

       Ha - I can add a control to select your choice of breath. Name your "flavour"!
xenzag, Mar 03 2022

       I'd prefer even breath; better to dry both hands at the same rate.

       Ooh, can I have a drier of the hot air of the politician or former politician of my choice?
Voice, Mar 03 2022

       [Voice], you wouldn't even need to plug it in; politicians already produce lots of hot air. Just ask about <contentious issue du jour> & feel the hot air blast!

       If we're going to personify dryers, I would prefer dryads.

       //Name your "flavour"!//   

       I want a bit of flammable gas thrown in and ignited on random occasions. I call it 'Excite Mint" flavour.

       Should be possible to find or invent a liquid or gas fuel that burns cool enough not to cause too much pain or damage to the user's hands.

       //.. fuel that burns cool enough not to cause too much pain or damage ..//   

       Acetylene, maybe. It produces a fair amount of smoke, too, so that adds aesthetically pleasing to the warm breeze.

       note - Putin is the new Zardoz, bringer of death "the gun is good, the penis is bad" see digital collage (link)

       //the gun is good, the penis is bad//   

       I suggest this rephrasing: "The gun is egalitarian, the penis is elitist".
pertinax, Mar 12 2022

       You could always suggest it to John Boorman for a redux version.
