Just for fun...

What is this? (Sent by Jonathan Hanson)



UPDATE: (Jonathan): "Apparently you screw it into a log or something, stick a piece of bait on the hook, and when something pulls on it . . . bang. Twenty two caliber."

Interesting. A special-purpose set-gun.

That would keep the neighbors out of the wine cellar.

Spring gun??

I think it has something to do with an attempt by the OSS to capture that Marxist Santa Claus once and for all.

The hook was attached to a plate of Cookies and the gun hidden in an adjoining Christmas tree.

It was discontinued after complaints came in from sleep-deprived fathers who accidentally set the trap off after refueling on cookies during late-night amateur engineering and untrained Japanese translating.

That's got to be a lethal component of a trap for fur animals, based on the legend on the side.
