Nostrilampus

guiding lights installed in your nose

Nostrilampus are two powerful, cold running lights that you install in your nostrils. They are held in place using a modified version of the type of flexible, clear plastic apparatus that hospitals use to supply oxygen to patients. This tubing also contains the power leads supplied from a battery pack, along with a cooling jet of air to prevent the nose from overheating.

The lights point permanently downwards, focusing just ahead of your feet, thus illuminating your pathway in life. In future, when folk say to you: "You should try to look into your future direction in life", your confident reply can be: "No need - I'm happy enough to follow my own nose"

       How bizzare. I think you just tried to fit as many semi-related puns into one idea, with no real thought as to whether it would work. Bun.

       Amazingly stupid. (+) On a par with those lights they use around the helmet of some SF movies, that make it impossible to see out, but very nice for seeing in.

       If someone with facial hair were walking towards you in darkness wearing these, all you would see is a small hairy creature with a large mouth and glowing eyes on top of its head, floating through the air.
