Sloth In A Box

with cloth sloth
  [vote for,

Exactly the same as a standard harlequin-patterned jack-in-the-box, except that when the box is opened (by whatever mechanism is bestest), rather than a bignosed clown, nothing pops up and wobbles at yer because the sloth inside is having a good auld kip.

Can't believe I didn't think of this earlier... [Jinbish, Jun 05 2009]

"Most sloths have difficulty surviving when in captivity outside of their natural range because they cannot fight off new diseases or adapt to a colder climate." http://www.sloth-world.org/
I find that there's something strangely comforting about the existence of a web site called "Sloth World". [DrBob, Jun 05 2009]

       Throw in a Bagpuss-esque yawn too.
Jinbish, Jun 04 2009

       well as long as the lid doesn't pop open +, as that is the part of the process that unravels me.

       Maybe he could "pop" out reaaaally slowly in his little harlequin jammies.

       You should get Justin Timberlake to help market it. <linky>

       Sloth + anything = awesome!

       And then there are the six follow-on products: Envy in a box, gluttony in a box...and my personal favourite Lust in a box.

       Gluttony: a cake on a spring
Greed: a $-labelled bag, bobbing and weaving from your grasp
Wrath: a boxing glove, to wallop you in the pus, Warner Bros style
Envy: um, Iago?
Pride: a mirror
Lust: daseva's link, I think!

       Can I have a moth in a box please?   

       When you open the lid, a milky moon is suspended above the cavity, around which the pet moth is encouraged to flit.   

       Later, it might be cool to insinuate Robert Smith into a box and see how that turns out.

       Also in this box, is there a glass vial of cyanide which will be broken by a mechanism triggered by the decay of a radioactive isotope which has a 50% probability of decaying within time T?
