boutonnière dispenser

not to dispense boutonnières
  [vote for,

This is actually a dispenser to load items onto/into and dispense them singly.

Let me explain: A small,disc that can rotate, with slots or pockets to load with candy, cigarettes, pretzels or even pencils. I’m thinking cylindrical objects like these would work best. The disc gets loaded and then attached to the base through the buttonhole, just like a flower boutonnière. Now one has easy access to these items.

I pictured a cigarette smoker just being able to turn their head and grab a ciggie hands-free. Or eating pretzels hands-free...

       Should incorporate a self-lighting mevhanism

       This would be nice to have attached to my blazer. If someone would happen to ask for a sugary treat, I'd just say "help yourself to my stash". I like this.

       Oh, alright. (+)   

       ...but you're just enabling now.   

       [poc] wouldn’t a self lighting Mechanism entail some Spontaneous combustion?

       Can they be spring loaded so that they shoot out like a jack in a box?

       YES, xen.

       Spring loaded pencils… Poke your eye out! Ha ha

       Yes, but after field tests, Q needed to dial back the spring force a bit as initial trials with agents resulted in a tragic loss of willing state's witnesses, resulting in a loss of several months of undercover work progress into the sport-coat gang.

       [+] Actually, with a job with high reach, and cordless tools, reaching for a screw coming from a lapel or epaulette has an appeal.
