It went “Zip” when it moved
And “Bop” when it stopped
And “Whirrr” when it stood still
I never knew just what it was and I guess I never will
‘The Marvelous Toy’ by Peter Paul and Mary
Tis the season when online shoppers relax, secure in the knowledge that their purchases will soon be waiting, snug on their doorstep.
Tis also the season when a virtual bounty awaits package thieves who boldly stroll up and take those packages in broad daylight.When a package was taken from NASA scientist and well-known prankster Mark Rober, he put his ingenuity in high gear to reward criminals in a way that not only gives Karma an assist, but provides hours of fun for Mark and for friends who borrow his reusable invention.
Watch with Mark as the box which is equipped with four cameras, is stolen. Once thieves are safely in their car or lair, the box seems to come alive, emitting a warning sound, and then a whirlwind of glitter. Astonishment turns to revulsion when a highly potent shot fart odor sprays, which inevitably causes bad guys to scramble in haste to be rid of the box. Watch the fun as bad guys and girls get their just desserts!
