Hum, seems the market is ripe for my do-it your-self Hangman's kit for kids.

Hangman's Kit for the Future Law Enforcement Officer in YOUR family.


Hang dolls for breaches of etiquette! Punish the gerbil for creating a papery mess in his cage! Strong enough to hold 100 pounds. A great educational toy. Learn Physics! What are the properties of falling objects? Learn how to test the tensile strength of different cords and cord materials! Test what lubricants work best for opening trap doors holding different weights!

Can be used indoors or outdoors.

Not suitable for children under 3.
(Some Assembly Required)

What is the point of all these toys that give you an electric shock? I just don't get it. I remember licking batteries and getting your friend to touch an electric fence but why have a toy that does it?

To teach pen pinchers a lesson ...

Quote
The victim will then pick up the pen, and, without even a nub of conscious motion, their thumb will immediately migrate to depress the top of the pen in hopes of discovering a fine new writing instrument. Instead, as they depress, they will complete a circuit that creates a small magnetic field, which then simulates an alternating current and provides relatively high voltage to the depression point on the thumb. It all happens in a split second, as will the screech and instant profanity, but the office memories will last a lifetime...

Please note, this pen does not actually write as it contains no ink nor an appropriate tip to dispense said ink. So, I suppose we should have called it a 'Shocking Mock Pen' instead of a 'Shocking Pen' - but, oh well - you'll forgive us, right? To make you feel better we'll tell you that it's about 5.5 inches tall. Oh, and it's not for children. This is an adult novelty toy.

Stuart - I want a Gilbert U-238 Atomic Energy Lab. I'm sure the brats would love playing with that in the field at the other end of the village  ;D
