Missile Toe   (+4)  [vote for, against]
For seasonal grumps.

A pair of black Santa style boots, with a big gold buckles. A small gas-powered snowball launcher is hidden in the toe of the right hand boot, and a tiny trigger switch on the inside of the right heel.

Clicking your heels together twice while wearing the Missile Toes would cause the fake snowball to shoot out of your right boot and, with a little practice, you could aim right up the nose of any carol singer who was getting up *your* nose. When the festive season gets too much for you, use the Missile Toes to splat Christmas trees, tinsel daubed market traders, charity brass bands, and any other seasonal annoyances.

To house the firing mechanism and gas canister, the boots would have a platform-style heel and sole. To avoid suspicion, a third click of your heels would start one of Slade's 1970's Christmas hits blasting out of a speaker in the sole of the left boot, and you could stroll off looking like a Noddy Holder fan.

Although I won't be wearing a pair, because I love Christmas, I can warmly recommend them for easing boredom at your children’s nativity plays.

Yes. And an idea. Did you read it yet?

Where are the snowballs stored? Surely you get more than one. Not that I would ever do anything like this. (+)

//looking like a Noddy Holder fan. //? whats not to love?

anything to liven up children's christmas concerts gets my vote although the nursery class singing "away in a manger" reduces me to tears every year.

They'd be stored in the platform heel. They'd need to be either small snowballs, expanding snow-foam, or the paper-based stuff they use in the movies. Sadly, I'm pretty sure they wouldn't be made of real snow.

"Your missile-toe is no match for my TOW-missile!"

Gratuitous Futurama quote. It wouldn't be a very big snowball would it?

[UB] It's not real snow. It's not between your toes. What's more, you should be wearing two pairs of socks at this time of year. Even if you are in the southern hemisphere.

OK [UB], you're allowed to wear open toe sandals... with two pairs of socks.
-- Fishrat, Dec 08 2003

I thought it was only the Poms that wore socks with sandals...

I would say you ripped off my Rocket Shoes, but I'm about two years late.
