The Medusa's Electrostatic Tie

The Medusa's Electrostatic Tie is a multi tailed necktie that hangs in place like any other tie until a discreet switch is pressed. Pressing this switch delivers an electrostatic charge to the tie tails, causing them to flick upright and fan out so that they cover most of the wearer's face. This action also reveals the rows of Medusa snake detail previously hidden on the tie tail backs.

None of this has any practical use, except to cause consternation in those confronted the spectacle.

       Would you be able to tell?

       What stops the tails from rising up to touch the wearer's face, thereby discharging them?

       Lurch, I think their complexion would change maybe.

       This could also be an anti-mugging device - when confronted by an attacker, activate the tie and watch your assailant flee in abject terror

"Why no, it's an Argo knot actually." (+)

       Well [Lurch], you made me laugh too. Very funny. Silly idea. +

       If you severely limited the amount of breakfast cereal you had, mounted a national symbol above them, then set fire to the whole arrangement, would this be called a corn-flag-ration?
