The bottom left one might produce interesting results.

If the goal is intimidation rather than efficiency, you still might earn some points.

You haven't seen the 5-blade version for a closer shave.

Bottom right would be perfect for preparing crudité platters!

Noted fascist and carmaker Henry Ford had a variety of car execution devices, the best known being the flivvertigibbet.

Putting the "man" in mandoline.

You've got a blade, and some kind of gravity-driven mechanism.

You can kill someone with that.

I prefer when they were deFordestrated.

Of course, the car designed for monkeys was a failure. Perhaps if they had named it something other than fivvertigibbon.

By pulling repeatedly on the rope and then tying it to the cleat, you have stored energy. By cutting the rope you can use that energy, converting it to motion that can do work...

Er, sorry.

Class dismissed...

yes, if the first apparatus had springs at the bottom, the platform would be bounced back to the initiial position and be re-energised. Thus saving the State a few cents with each execution!
At the end of a year the staff could have a nice lunch somewhere using the savings.

reminds me I should really get back on development of the Wingnut Processor.

Now THATS a late night infomercial I'd stay up for!

You do not want them driving anyway after they've been at the monkey bars.

For many years I laboured under the misapprehension that Les Crudités was a stand-up comedian from North England.

The bottom left one would also be great for quickly shaving off a few pounds.

tigris said...

Or making Manwiches.

Apparently Rick Santelli is again auditioning to be the test subject on these devices.

>behead royalty

>kill royalty

>execute royalty
you can't do that

>slice appetizers

zombie rotten mcdonald said...

shaved queen

I suspect googling that would return a LOT of hits.

fish said...

With a stage name "Whore Durve"

IT WAS A MISTAKE! I was researching the history of the Commonwealth and the shared Queen!
Don't judge me,man!

mikey said...

Umm, yeah, I'll have the shaved queen with the spotted dick.

And a nice madeira...

You people can clearly not recognize a pipe organ transplant device. The cutout is for the organist, who must maintain the bellows during the procedure.

There is, of course, a special attachment for the carillon stops, but isn't there always?

Another Kiwi said...

As H.S.Truman said "The carillon stops here"

Smut Clyde said...

I would hate for anyone to say that we don't give John Ptak enough credit.

fish said...

A real artist would have sliced the baby too.

We've secretly replaced this organist's vox humana with vox clamantis, let's see if anyone notices...
