Dumbest Idea Ever

You know what I mean.

So I was like walking along the other day and I had this idea that I should tell you about but it's just so stupid that I don't think you'll like it.

It involves a car and an automatic arm and some modifications to the car and a couple of gullible people and some non-lethal wiring and a capacitor and a sign that says "DO NOT TOUCH".

Or maybe two of them.

       //non-lethal wiring//   

       Good thing you specified. I bought the other kind at Home Despot. Luckily, I kept the receipt, and only had my minions handle it.

       As grade school kids, we took an old gas station bell hose we found and ran it across the street in front of our house and put a wooden box over one end with a porcelin light bulb fixtue and bulb on top. People stopped that were afraid to drive over it.

       An early IED, [Mustard]?

       I voted [-] despite my appreciation of [UB]'s previous contributions to the HB. I'd prefer if known dumb ideas (as opposed to half-baked ones) weren't posted.   

       I think the posting is a parody of much of the detritus posted of late.   

       //Or maybe two of them.// This reference may be to the brilliant "two cups of coffee" post.

       As a kid, my cousin and I would each take a stance across the road from each other. We pretended we were holding some type of (invisible) wire or rope. The cars would slow down and stop and we would run off, laughing. I guess I've been a halfbaker most of my life. (I imagine I'll still be one in my rocking chair, too.)

       You're allowed to buy a rocking chair now if you like - there's no age-check when you buy one.

       Unless the shop that sells them has been placed in administration.
