Product: Clock: Speaking
Geekoo Clock   (0)  [vote for, against]

Looks like a normal clock, perhaps a little gaudy but otherwise harmless in appearance. Every hour a mis-shapen dwarf -like creature shoots out of a portal and delivers a puerile one-word insult. At random intervals and for no apparent reason, the creature re-appears and launches into a complete rant about nothing in particular.

On the deluxe version, the feature can be turned off if required, via an infra red remote switch in the form of a 12-bore shotgun, to the accompaniment of a large gout of blue and purple flame and an enormous bang. Only works once.

Thanks to [UB] for unwitting inspiration.

I'll take a full case, and two boxes of shotgun shells.

I want one. As long as you can shut it up at night. How would you ensure a good variety of rants? Perhaps it could have an internet connection to download editorials from right-wing newspaper columnists.

A cuckoo clock with tourette's syndrome? I want one!

What? No dwarf tossing?

No, no, it's a troll, not an owl!
