For the man who has totally run out of good ideas, here is the Woo-Wee Auto Horn.
Not only will you alienate women with this thing*, but you can goad “road hogs” into full-blown rage as you emit screeches, barks, whistles and siren noises. That’ll work out well.
And who hasn’t thought to themselves: I wish I could buy me a bright yellow Cadillac. It would sure impress the girls. And everyone would get out of my way on the highway, too. But those Cadillacs sure are pricey….Hey, I know! I’ll buy a loud obnoxious horn instead. It’s practically the same thing!
You thought inventing the automobile was a clever trick? Forget about it, that was nothing. This is the epitome of wit and charm. Too bad if you want to reel in the babes in Ohio, though – you’ll have to pay extra.
Insurance and legal fees not included.
*Although it seems to amuse elves in curlers, if that’s your sort of thing.
