Tumbleweed Turbine

the banality engine
(+4, -4)
  [vote for,

A misdelivered joke is commonly known to manifest a tumblweed that spins at a slow yet constant rate. Take a series of these Tumbleweeds and cover their outside perimeters in electromagnets. From here an engine can easily be designed to power your vehicle.

Enter the car and tell a joke into the dashboard microphone, that is badly delivered - leaving out important parts that relate to the punchline, and the Tumbleweeds will begin to turn . .

       I wouldn't get anywhere. My jokes are too good. Do you have a car that runs on rim-shots?

       I think I heard the engine crank...

       We badly need a category for tumbleweeds.[+]
