Mr Spartan is a impact resistant rubber or thermoplastic doll the size of a ventriloquist dummy,dressed in a worn-in tux with a unshaven appearance.
He has a memory bank of 100's of pre-recorded laconic,stoical and curt pithy remarks,the type which from observation only the drunk in the corner
who waves his finger in the air and converses with himself would have and understand.
Mr Spartan is placed behind me or near to me on a stool in the bar,ready to be activated via a remote control whenever I am approached by a drunk demanding a cigarette or in need of a ridiculous conversation.
Mr Spartan would summon this person away from me,so I may continue my drink....(MS) "ahem ..yes..you..over here" and begins a voice activated hardy banter ,if he is knocked over, his giro thingy mechanism would activate "help me back up will ya?" And banter will resume.This would give me the chance to escape or when I need to leave approach and swiftly explain "excuse me I have to take my good friend Mr Spartan to a hospital appointment" or alike.
