PogoVac

Spring Fresh Carpet Cleaner

Dangerous, inefficient and annoying to the downstairs neighbours; a Pogo Stick with both base and rubber tip remaining hollow provides suction from each upward recoil to lift debris.

Said detritus feeds into bags on either side of main cylinder even as gravity pulls pogovacuumer like a spastic bull in a china shop to spot-clean here and there.

       To annoy the downstairs neighbors like having a prolonged nasty romp with your partner that moves from room to room without missing a beat? The thumping and panting is there but it needs a crescendo.

       If it doesn't make it as a room vacuum, removal of the rubber tip could make it a dandy tool for cultivating the flower beds, or it could be slightly rejiggered to aerate the lawns. [+] for product versatility.

       sounds a lot more fun than what I do with a vac. (which is not perverse or even a little bit funny)

       Hi bake/2 kids and witches! Yes, jurist - at low tide, it could also be a wonderful clamdigger, well, save for that sinking feeling; a halfclambake, if you will.

       Crazy, genius. (+)

       This would be fun at a bottle party, see who can get the cork out without falling over.

       Or some kind of floor based Hungry-Hungry-Hippos-esque party game.
