Couldn't James A. Williams of Fredonia, Texas have more easily side-stepped the patent process and have his invention approved by an act of the Texas legislature?
Didn't he also develop the revolver wart remover and the cannon bottle opener?
Anything worth doing is worth overdoing.
The authorities might have considered this to be "overkill" and a possible endangerment of human life!
Punxatawny Phil says this a helluva item to post shortly before Groundhog Day.
Anyway, I take it the world didn't beat a path to Mr. Williams' door.
By the way, didn't Williams also invent the game of "Whack-a-Mole"?
If Williams came out with this idea now, he would have all the "animal rights" activists and environmentalists all over his back. JUST STICK WITH A BUNCH OF CATS--THEY AIN'T ILLEGAL!
We have a desk stapler in the form of Tweety Bird wacking Sylvester with a big blue hammer.Cartoon characters get away with lots of violence!
Anthony, you're reminding me of all those mothers I met during my daughter's pre-school years who were horrified by the Roadrunner and Coyote cartoons. They clearly didn't understand the dangers of the inventor's creative process.
No only the Roadrunner-Wiley cartoons. There are--and have been--some others that are extremely violent. I have had friends request that I not give their children and/or grandchildren anything involving The Three Stooges!
Nyuck nyuck nyuck!
