Ultimate Useless Machine
The Most Useless Machine EVER...and yet everyone wants one?! You turn it on. And out of the box, a little finger pops out and turns the unit back off... That's all it does, and the smile on your face is proof it works!
Ok, so it's a black box, sort of shiny, with a switch on top. But what does it do? Does it trigger dynamite somewhere on a remote site? Does it shock you? Does it fold open into a robot and walk off? You stare it at over and over until you can't hold it any more. You slowly reach for the switch with your finger and carefully push it forward... And out of the box, a little finger pops out and turns the unit back off... You switch it back on and again... it switches itself off... That's all it does, and the smile on your face is proof it works!
