Last Resort Alarm Clock

better get out of bed now …
(+3, -3)
  [vote for,

An alarm clock with an extra feature: it explodes after five minutes if you don’t get up. Not with a great deal of force, but with enough noise and smoke to wake the neighbors and bring the local Fire Department rushing to your house.

You may ask, “But how will this help me get out of bed in the morning?” Simple; between the embarrassment of causing a huge scene and the expense of cleaning up the mess (and replacing the alarm clock) you will never oversleep again.

Bonus feature: The Last Resort Alarm Clock provides a perfect excuse for being late to work, but only once - your boss will never believe that your house caught on fire twice.
