Olympic Rings Knuckleduster

New from BorgCo, on first inspection this looks just like a set of interlocked, stainless-steel Olympic rings that could be attached to a keyring - although they're just a bit large.

However, press the concealed catch, pull gently, and the five rings can be pulled apart on cunningly crafted pivots and sliding bars, locking into a handy knuckleduster.

Press the release catch and squeeze; back to that now oh-so-familiar logo in the blink of an eye.

Now, when someone asks you your opinion of London hosting the 2012 Olympics, you're ideally equipped to push their teeth down their miserable throat in tiny sharp-edged fragments with a perfectly co-ordinated right hook to the jaw.

Comes in a special presentation box complete with a spray-bottle of special cleaner, guaranteed to destroy any forensic traces of blood, skin, tissue or bone in a single application.

       Poor form—the Olympics have been over for nearly a month already. Frustrating though it might be, I'm afraid decorum dictates that you should have sat on this idea for a couple of years.

       The Olympics are very much alive. Closing ceremony of wonderful Paralympics currently gracing my tv.

       I see only two flaws with this idea. The first is that knuckledusters conventionally accommodate four digits rather than five, but perhaps the Borg have a different arrangement.   

       The second is that, in fact, I think old Blighty did rather well with the Olympics and put on a damned fine show. Considering that the budget was only a shade over £20, I think we knocked the spots off the Chinese. Plus our fireworks weren't Photoshopped in afterwards.
