Sphinx toilet paper holder

For guest bathrooms.
  [vote for,

BorgCo are pleased to announce their latest home entertainment offering; a toilet roll holder with a model of the Sphinx mounted on top.

When the infrared sensors detect the presence of a toilet user, the eyes light up and the Sphinx then requests them to give their age. It then demands for "thee to answer my questions three" of a difficulty and content appropriate to the age of the user.

Voice recognition software analyzes the responses and if correct, releases the clutch on the roll; otherwise it waits until the room has been has been vacated for five minutes before resetting.

Guaranteed to break the ice at parties.

NB beware if asked your favourite colour.

       I absolutely love this. I'd give it more +'s if I could.

       Blue, no Yellow!

       Yeah, I love it too. This would be funny in public cubicles, with everyone settled down, whispering frantically to their respective Sphinx.   

       Toilet attendants might do a side-line in riddles so as to help-out their charges should they find themselves in a tight spot.

       Imagining the graffiti scrawled on a toilet wall:
Look upon my works, and despair!

       It's ok. I don't need any paper.
I'm just going for a Jimmy Riddle.

       Or "Britain's got ExLax" and the viewers get to vote on who gets the easy questions from the Sphinx..   

       + (but I don't speak Egyptian)

       //if its cruel to puppies there will be trouble. — po, Dec 10 2009// Especially if the puppy starts chewing up the roll of toilet paper.

       It could be a cute Sphinx puppy (kitten ? cub ? chick ? calf ? Anyone know what a baby Sphinx is called ?)

       Sphincter, An Egyptian muscle dog.

       OK, you get my vote, but my 8 year old's way too smart for this, but still has not learned proper judgment in TP consumption, so there's a minor flaw in the design there...

       If you buy the top-of-the-range model it has heuristic software and a web connection for question library updates.
