Corduroy crop-circle cutter   (+36, -1)  [vote for, against]
Aliens landed in my closet.

This device resembles a pair of compasses, except that, in place of a pencil, the non-spike end has something like a very narrow safety razor.

You use it to shave concentric patterns on your corduroy trousers or jacket, and then claim extra-terrestrial origins for them.

Of course, if evil, you could use it to shave concentric patterns in someone else's corduroys while they slept.

I don't own any corduroy, but I'd be more likely to if I knew I could lay my hands on a Corduroy crop-circle cutter...

Brilliant idea. Quiz question: What was the race of microscopically small aliens in the Hitchhikers' Guide to the Galaxy called who arrived on Earth and were eaten by a small dog?

From memory, the Hartravartid?

or possibly the "Vl'hurg"....

Too late!!

Can it also be used on body hair?
-- Galbinus_Caeli, Aug 02 2006

In that case, I think the person might wake up.
-- pertinax, Aug 02 2006

The G'Gugvuntt and the Vl'hurg joined forces to attack Earth, and were swallowed by a small dog.

[Spidermother], is spidermother what was said about the leaders' mother? Funny you should make that anno.

But any corduroy circles expert would immediately notice the individual hairs are cut, instead of folded without breaking.

+, made me laugh.

Or simply cut crop semi-circles to create fully ventilated trousers, allbeit very stupid looking ones. [+]

Nice! [+] I recommend using a moustache-trimming blade (link)
