Nowadays it would be deemed politically incorrect to thump moles over the head with a hammer ... even if it is a plastic mole and a plastic hammer. But after the dodgems, Whac-a-Mole (apparently there's not a "k" in Whack) it was probably the most satisfying aspect of a visit to a Portrush amusement arcade when spending a weekend up on the North Coast. Physical exertion combined with mental concentration. Fun.
Well now you can do it at your desk. Without the hammer. And without the physical exertion. Bit rubbish really.
But the firms who make a fortune churning out pointless gizmos that can be powered from your computer’s USB port have created the USB Whack It. Uses your finger. Would be far more fun with a big hammer!
Think I’ll stick to the magnetic letter anagrams on the side of the filing cabinet ...
