reveilles and I went shopping today and, among other things, we bought a plunger for our apartment. When we got back to the house, I picked it up to carry it inside, but first I held it out in front of me, pointed it at reveilles, and said "EXTERMINATE!"

It's like, the worst sci-fi weapon EVAR. That ray gun thing was useful, but the plunger arm just waved about uselessly, stuck on its tin can mount. And they only made it slightly more embarrassing when they were like, "Check out this new terrifying face-sucking power, now that we have CGI!" I mean, c'mon! How useful is a weapon that only works if you can get your prey to put their face in exactly the right 6"-diameter spot, because the sucking arm has almost no freedom of movement?

It works *slightly* better as a data-input device, except for the part where it looks totally dorky smashed up against a non-flat or non-toilet-bowl-shaped interface.

Now, what would have been a cool power for a toilet-plunger arm to display? Anyone? (And no, I'm not looking for "TOILET PLUNGING!" Really. Stretch your creativity.)

Sonic weapon - the plunger bowl's actually a resonator bell.
