I just saw a new invention. It is a hamster cage with a paper shredder. The hamster powers the shredder as it runs around its wheel. The documents that need shredding are fed directly into the cage so that the hamster can use the shredded paper as bedding. I think this is a brilliant idea and very entertaining. Has anyone found any more weird and wonderful inventions?

I think the RSPCA would have something to say about making a hampster work for his living.:)

You'd need a Brit to show you where the on/off switch was. And don't bother asking the Treacle Town Totty because she wouldn't know either.

P.S. Ask her which town was voted the Least Cultured in the UK in The Times in 2004.
