clockwork orange peeler

Peeling oranges by hand just gets your hands sticky. I have thought of a way to solve that problem and make a crappy joke at the same time. The mechanism has six curved arms that enclose the orange like large segments. There is a small apple corer mounted on top, pushing this down removes the stalk and the big bit of pith in the middle, locks down the arms, which cut the skin into segments, and starts the mechanism. The arms hold a set of serrated blades at the top that are pushed in by the plunger, the blades are then pulled down the orange by wires attached to the clockwork at the base.

Viola, a neatly peeled orange, a pointless gadget and a bad pun.
