Reverse Whoopie Cushion

Makes noise when you get up
  [vote for,

Despite the name, not entirely a joke. The idea is a travel cushion that makes a noise when you get up, to remind you to take it with you when you leave the bus, train, taxi, etc.

       What nose does it make? Can it clear it's throat tactfully?

       // what noise //   

       Haven’t decided yet. Throat clearing might be too discreet. Crying baby? Wolf whistle?

       I actually like this. And yes, custom-made sound effects like an eerie voice that kind of mocks you for forgetting it yet again.

       //an eerie voice//   

       I want the "sarcasm and existential angst" version

       I don't even know -- are those geolocation tags already set to make a beep if your wallet and pocket get separated?

       "Here I am, brain the size of a planet, and they tell me to hold you up like a fridge."   

       // geolocation tags //   

       Considered those. Shortcoming is response time. Need to sound off the instant butt leaves cushion, not after the cab or bus has pulled away.

       ^ ooh, nice leap-frog   

       unintentional - I hit the delete tag instead of edit.

       It happens.
It doesn't necessarily negate the possibility of my having recently swapped universes but it's a good indicator that the cycle isn't dramatically increasing in frequency.

       Thanks for the confirmation.   

       I need a version for my office chair saying "Make an extra effort to remember that thing you just forgot about because once you get to the other end of the hallway you're going to forget."

       Mine will say, "Oh, it is to be another day supporting your large derriere. What a treat".

       + I think this can be applied to other personal items and I would like to order a whoopee cushion purse!

       As the reverse of a whoopee cushion, it’s going to have to make the squelchy sucking sound of an un- fart.

       That SO reminds me of one of my favorite commercials from the eighties... at least I think it was the eighties and can't be bothered to look up the date. [link]   

       A one way teddy bear voice connected to expansion balloon might do. Sitting on the cushion pushes air into balloon on the other side of the voice box and holds it. Getting up, lets off the pressure and the growl is released.   

       A squeak, squawk or purr all could be possible.   

       Then again, the balloons might not even be needed.
