Upholster several rubber bands, a tea-strainer, joke imprinted ice cream sticks,several plates of meccano and a pulley and arft cogs.

Graft and meld together these ingredients within the "Top Hat" to enable - "Elevation and Flip-lid" (hat trick)< oil for faster hat vigour> (34 walnuts, max) Hat brim colour options: (low tech) Black through White.

Once assembled, (don)tug the ruby counterweighted pulley hat rim string.

Good for knocking off bobbies helmets and slinging walnuts for the parrots at feeding time.

       For more open warfare, install a small telescopic flagpole that will raise your heraldic flag from the hat-top while the lid-flip is up.

       How about a trebouquet for launching bunches of flowers at opera singers?

       [AWOL] - I think you just gave [UB] an idea...

       [wags] Yeah, I know, but he couldn't make up a decent pun for his. Nor, come to mention it, could I.
