What color are smoke dectectors? Correct. What shape are smoke detectors? Correct.

Round and White has ruled for too long!

It's time to liven it up a little. I want to buy a smoke detector that looks like a nose and put on my wall/ceiling. When you check the battery it either says, "I'm clear" or else (in a stuffed up voice), "I'm stuffy." I'd like to be friends with this important household item.

       I can think of some body parts we could substitute for thermometers, too.

       What colour is a PeterSealy's nose? Mine's kinda beige. Perhaps he has a bright blue iNose.

       <off topic> I remember reading a book, when I was a kid, which mentioned a canary. I was thoroughly confused for a long time because I thought that they were talking about a place where cans were made.

       I'll take one in Toucan Sam style. Maybe it'll even follow its nose to the source of the smoke.

       Well, señor, the recently introduced Lav-x® refillable toilet bowl deodorizer uses a special green apple scented gel. If we were to offer that shaped like a nose?

       Little Joan of Arc statues that scream and pray when they detect smoke.

       Isn't smoke used to pacify bees? If you filled your house full of angry bees, instead of a conventional smoke detector, then when they stopped stinging you, you'd know that your house is on fire.
