Giant People-Vacuum

For de-mobbing streets
  [vote for,

A giant rotary brush gently directs an unruly crowd towards an equally giant vacuum slot. Brush and slot are mounted to the front of a mobile unit. A rubberized cyclone section allows adults to be separated from children and small animals so that the latter are sent to a bypass chute where they are harmlessly deposited behind the unit in a generally upright position. Adults and large animals are dropped into the collection bag which, when full, is discarded.

       Only if it can have a grumbly voice like the Suc-u-bus in 'Starship Titanic.'

       This was half baked in some long forgotten sci fi movie (all I remember is the image on the poster).

       Ah, it's all well and good until the beater brush snags the edge of the carpet and you get that nasty "burnt rubber" smell from the belt.

Sounds ominous!
