for those times when it is necessary to propel something at speed.

need to fling a sample of spaghetti at the ceiling? no problem – just fill up the vacant container and screw into the explosive part of your popper and pull the string. wham! your spaghetti is on the ceiling and you can assess whether it’s cooked to perfection.

need to send a quick note to a work colleague who is 40’ away? no problem, just fold up your note into another popper and fire…

I cringe to think what some people would put in them.

       A cob of corn?

       They'll be banned in schools in no time. Need to tell the girl in the third row you think she's cute - just pop her.

       The possiblities are unlimited....I could do anything I wanted to anybody, pull my little party-popper string and it instantly justifies my actions...hurrah!

       And next...Cell phone poppers. Instead of a quiet text message, POP!!!!! Your cell phone flies open and jumps out of your pocket.

       not sure that you could fit a phone into a popper?

       No reason why you can't make this I suppose: The 'lid' bit that includes the cardboard cap could be a threaded part that can be screwed onto the body of the popper that contains the charge. The cardboard will still fly off and eject the added contents, no?
I think I would like some of these.

       Were you inspired by leftover party poppers from New Year's Eve? :) At first glance I thought the title said "Empty Party Poopers" and thought, it can't get more boring than that. I like the idea of popping things over to another place, like raw eggs, for example.

       Party poppers are pretty easy to empty now. When I was in school a mate shot me with one fiilled with staples, they didn't do much as the tiny explosive can't fling very much stuff an interesting distance. The streamers don't go far and they weigh a lot less than spaghetti.

       A ping-pong ball works well. Blasting the bride and groom with rice would be, er, I mean ‘showering’...

       I saw party poopers as well, and sort of thought, well shit, that's what they get for being so dull. But a + instead for poppers that aren't poopers.

       Poopers, bliss?
