My nominee for invention of the year: Clocky
Well, here it is, the invention I've been waiting my whole life for: Clocky, a clock that rolls away after you hit the snooze alarm, forcing you to get out of bed to turn it off when the alarm sounds again. Simplicity itself.
Clocky has so moved me (in the metaphorical sense) that I felt compelled to write a poem in its honor--a limerick, to be exact.
Shag-carpeted, wheeled, it looks schlocky.
But don't turn your nose up at Clocky.
So, snooze-alarm addict,
Buy one; it's nomadic,
And plays hard-to-get, this tick-tocky.
