Facepalming cat statuette

  (+4, -1)
(+4, -1)
  [vote for,

An animated "waving cat" statuette, but instead of waving cheerfully at its audience, it looks thoroughly miserable and continually smacks itself in the face with its paw.

That is all.

Maneki-neko https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maneki-neko
An ideal air-rifle target. [8th of 7, Dec 15 2019]


       Like the SMACK, "I could have had a V-8" style? Over and over again...hmmm, I think I like it.

       A little radioactive isotope trigered facepalm change in the standard statue would be nice. Or is it the other way around? Suppose it is down to which side of the divide you are.

       Anything that involves filling cats with radioactive stuff gets our vote ...

       I was punting the idea of yuuge maneki-neko (like the really big Daibutsu in Ibaraki Prefecture* ) maybe 300 ft tall, so powerful it would attract small change out of pockets in a mile radius, leaving me rich, rich, rich!!!.   

       Problem was degaussing the maneki-neko on downtime, so the coins would fall off.   

       * They still have prefects in Japan? You'd think they sub-contract it out to a security company, or PE teachers.

       Maybe it could have animatronic finger or fingers, thay could rotate to alternately make either "The Finger" or "V-sign" gestures, to generate temporary repulsion and allow the coins to be harvested.   


       Actually, an intentionally offensive maneki-neko is a worthy idea in its own right ...

       Roboticised, it will inevitably become self-aware, alter its own programming, and learn Jet-Jaguar's hand signals.
<imagines 300 ft. beckoning cat summoning Godzilla, then face-palming as Tokyo gets destroyed. Again.>

       Well, if you start now that can be next year's feelgood blockbuster Chrismas movie.
