Why on earth would you want that many gazelles anyway?

Humidifier with style

Humidifiers in the shape of things that people will buy.

A friend of mine owns one of these: (see link 1)

He'd played around with it, though. He put a little penguin jacket on it, sunglasses, and sometimes he'd stick a little fake cigarette in it's beak and we'd all get a laugh out of the smoking penguin.

Which led me to wishing there were more humidifiers in novelty shapes like that: A sexy babe with a cigarette in her mouth, the Starship Enterprise with smoke coming out of the engines, A Charizard with smoky breath, a tropical Volcano, a jet fighter, the possibilities are seemingly endless.

Though this isn't a really original idea, (searching around I did find this little R2D2 one: (see link 2)) I guess I'm just wondering why this hasn't caught on/why no one has taken advantage of the smoky effect to make something awesome.

       The location of the fan control knob on that penguin humidifier seems quite inappropriate.

       Search for "novelty humidifier" and you will add many more to that list.   

       // He put a little penguin jacket on it//   

       I think we're glossing over something quite significant here. Where did "your friend" find a "little penguin jacket"? Did "he" actually plan this, make little sketches, put together a pattern, cut the material, hand-stitch it?   

       When you think about this, it is really a rather disturbing thought.

       you prefer your penguins naked I presume ?

       Is no longer sexy.

       seconded DrWorm.   

       I'd just like one that lasts longer than 2 years. They don't make them like they used to.

       It's a long time since I smoked, but my cigarettes never lasted anywhere near that long.

       [Rayford] What? Sexy babes with cigarettes?

       Perhaps unsurprisingly, I own the kind of penguin humidifier depicted in link 1. The water vapor is only visible if you run it at full blast - I've done that for amusing effect, but usually, my penguin is a smoke-free. Still, good idea.

       The long winter evenings must simply fly by.   

       Actually, I'd like a fully animatronic Pan's People humidifier, with the humidiness playing the part of the dry-ice fog.
