HB Rocket Propelled Grenade

And finally, Half Bakery the flame thrower. The kiddies will really like this.
  [vote for,

Nothing says "my idea is better than yours" than the barrel of a rocket powered grenade.

Any person with 500 croissants and proper license is eligible to purchase a custard propelled rocket attached to a can filled with gunpowder, stones and broken glass, all with the halfbakery logo ofcourse. All of the ingredients are affordable thus allowing anyone with a small sum of money and a pyrotechnics license (and possibly a few more) to have this wonderful device of persuasion.

::Caution:: It is asked that you kindly remove any halfbakery decals from your grenade launcher when taking it out in public.

"decal" etymology https://www.etymonline.com/word/decal
[po], your etymology sounded like nonsense to me, but Etymonline confirms it! Semi-related: How does everyone here pronounce "decal"? [notexactly, Mar 18 2018]


       We've got a few pyro pros here... Why limit it to the *first* to obtain 500 buns? Shirley there will be others.

       We can make a whole catalog of rewards, like Marlboro proof-of-purchase products without the risk of lung cancer.

       Can it be custard-propelled instead?
friendlyfire, May 18 2003

       May I ask; where does the word 'decal' come from? I realise what a decal is, but I just can't work out what the word means - presuming it's short for something?
badgers, May 18 2003

       decal is short for decalcomania (French) I am told.   

       the art or process of transferring pictures and designs from specially prepared paper (as to glass)

       That's funny; I looked up the etymology of "decal" just the other day, because it was bugging me. Originally (before the "mania" part), it seems to have been a metaphor from the way a heel may come unstuck from a shoe.   

       In the UK, people usually say "transfer" instead. At least, they did back when I was sticking them to Airfix models.

       May I combine half buns?
