yoyo ear-rings   (+16, -8)  [vote for, against]
dynamic jewellery

girl%20with%20yoyo%20ear-rings delicately balanced and precision made, these yoyos dangle from each ear and at the slightest movement of the head they are sent spinning downwards or bungeed back up; the white gold and diamond bearings twinkling through the transparent casing as they do so.

with a little practice you could learn to ‘walk the dog’ by using just a fraction more movement of your head, the yoyos will travel up the silver thread, over your ears and back down again to the amazement of all your friends.

‘rocking the baby’ is more complicated and may take some weeks to accomplish but will definitely keep a toddler amused and may actually mesmorise them to sleep so its definitely worth pursuing.

the ‘forward pass’ involves the yoyo/yoyos extending forwards some feet and may not be appreciated at dinner parties but as a self-defence move it is incomparable.

please remember though that these are not toys but sensitive items of jewellery and the manufacturers cannot be responsible for breakage if treated roughly or inappropriately.

yoyo ear-rings [FarmerJohn, Dec 15 2004, last modified Dec 16 2004]

Yo-yo ear-rings
Done, like everything else in life, in the Simpsons. The Twirl King troupe had Sparkle, with a yo-yo in each ear. There's a mention about 1/4 way through. Please forgive my geekiness. [suctionpad, Dec 15 2004]

These would make the perfect anniversary present, along with the precision weighted hula necklace.

-- po, Dec 15 2004

Thanks [FJ], but I can see the illustration neither in-line nor via the link. Had similar problems with one of [bris]'s recently too.

or me!

I need a sabbatical perhaps.
-- po, Dec 16 2004

We love you [po]! Anyway, given your last posting I can't see a sabbatical lasting more than 24 hours.
-- wagster, Dec 16 2004

uhm . . . 7. And it's not hate! Hate is such a strong word.

Can't believe I haven't seen this one before. Also uncanny the way the illustration is *exactly* what [po] looks like in real life.
