Revolving Door Music

Office music box powered by turning

To lighten up these times of corporate lay-offs (yeah, they got to me in the end, just in time for Christmas), incorporate the pins and combs [thank you, Aristotle] from music boxes into revolving doors, so they generate music as they turn.

Could also use the sheet-fed barrel organ from a vintage merry-go-round.

       Clever *and* charming. Sorry about your job.

       I think it should play catchy little tunes like "Take this job and shove it" and "I don't wanna' work", etc... My condolences on your lay-off, Doc, I had a similar experience.

       I have, [bliss]. Huge commiserations, [DrC], I've been there. What happened, did they find out you spend all your time here?

       It could play "Pop goes the weasel!" climaxing with a random toilet in the executive washroom backing up explosively.

       <very small piglet voice> I do, but I'm starting to feel very lonely<very small piglet...>   

       Commiserations you guys. Hope everything works out alright.

       Just the thought of you good folks being on the receiving end of the corporate broom has given me an immediate and unrelenting 2-ibuprofen headache.
I always hated that call into the office, and I empathize with you.
I do have a question though: If one's head is rolling at a considerable clip, and it should jam up the revolving door mechanism, is the head liable for damages?
