Avoid identity theft – get a hamster

In the world of daft inventions, here’s a great new one: the hamster shredder.

No, it’s not a machine for grinding wee hammy into pulp, but a document shredder driven by hamster power.

The
idea is that you get rid of your sensitive documents by putting them in
the slot on top of the shredder, like normal.  Then little hammy goes
around and around and around on his little wheel and, as he does this,
it drives cogs and barrels and shreds your pages. 

There are two versions of the hamster shredder: Mark I and Mark II.

The
great news is that when little hammy has finished his running, he can
sleep on his produce of the day – lots of little bits of paper.  And
the only downside is that it takes him about 45 minutes to run through
1 piece of A4, so don’t try doing mass shredding here folks.

If you don’t have a hamster, by the way, you can always go and find a rat.
