'Baker Bluetooth Thinger

So One 'Baker Knows When He/She/It/They Encounter/s/ Another
  [vote for,

Shouldn't be too exceptionally life-threateningly hard. Just take an ordinary Bluetooth broadcaster-type device, and plug yer own info into it, for example: "ID=Special: Halfbaker--User: galukalock". Or somesuch.

Oh yeah, and a bitty screen and beeper to let you know if you pass another with the "ID=Special: Halfbaker" tag in their device.

       Wear a hat with a fish carcass stapled to it? The smell would have about the same range as a Bluetooth connection.

       Sure, but only downwind. Also, you have to admit there's no cool factor associated with fishbones.

       We know each other by our secret handshake and exploding underwear. If you don't know about either, well....

       Okay. But do you really shake the hands and inspect the underwear of every single person you see?   

       Even if you were that sick, it'd still be impossible.
galukalock, May 24 2003

       I highly resemble that!

       Staple a bloodhound to the other side of the hat to more easily detect other fish-carcass-hat-wearers.

       Anyone carrying an object (other than a doughnut) that is custard-filled is, by default, a baker. They also usually wear their underpants over their trousers. If that isn't enough for a positive idenification, they are often strange street-people with a scrawny dog on the end of several pieces of string tied together muttering 'Buggrit. Millenium hand and shrimp'. If that isn't enough for a positive ID, what are you doing here, you crazy Schlaven?
