Mouse Hide-A-Key   (+6, -1)  [vote for, against]

Especially useful with those pesky lockable cabinets. Save the room on your keyring, put 'em in your mouse. Can also be used for other items. Use up that unused space.

And where do you put the screwdriver that you need to open up your mouse? On your key-ring?

Hide-a-keys normally have a slide-in slot where you can store stuff... no screwdriver needed ;)

Oh wait, that was a joke... I think. :P

Like the hide-a-key rocks, this would work because it blends in with the umpteen dozen other mice on your desk.

But what if someone steals your mouse?

As a deterrent to theft, I would make the mouse incredibly heavy, or look broken.

Or look like a rock.

or a real mouse...

Yeah, make it a real, functional mouse connected to the computer. Why would anyone steal just an average mouse?

I meant make it look like a squeaky furry mouse - oh never mind...
