an alternative to yer bog-standard chocolate fountains (yawn), this is an innovative device that will entertain your friends, shallow creatures that they are, for at least 20 minutes but by that time the alcohol will have kicked in and the party will be going strong…

the mud bath consists of a stainless steel slim bowl complete with heating element and they, the teflon covered mud wrestling marionettes, are constantly writhing and squirming; keeping the melted chocolate in a steady state of motion circulating the gentle heat melting the creamy confection.

the puppets themselves are worked from above by a mechanical contraption that plays with their wires to jerk and twist their little limbs in and out of the chocolate sauce like a bizarre game of twister; splashing merrily and comically falling about all over each other.

mind you, the working prototype is a beggar to untangle the wires afterwards and don’t forget to bring your own strawberries…

I was thinking cherries...mmmm good.
  

       (and as for those tangled wires, just cover 'em in chocolate too, and I'll gnaw right thru them ;-)

       I want to be able to hand one of them a strawberry. The puppet grabs it, dives into the chocolate and splashes & flails about, getting it well coated, then picks it up and offers it back to me.

       You'd better watch those puppets. I think one of them peed in the bowl.
