Spitting Made Simple with Kickstand's Snot Gun

There could be a whole other market for this at Halloween for snotty nosed kids needing a helmet as part of their costume.

A member of Duluth Minnesota's Nobody Motorcycle Club, spent the past winter working on how "to spit a wad of snot, while riding your bike helmet bound." His solution: a "snot accelerator system" called the the Snot Gun. The 60-year-old Minnesotan, who goes by the name Kickstand and lists indoor bocce ball as one of his hobbies, says his 12-volt-powered device allows you to spit into a mouth piece and shoot your sputum rearwards, clear of you and your bike, out of a tube mounted on the back of your helmet. No explanation on how it works with a passenger onboard though. 

Kickstand says he's looking for someone to manufacture his unsightly invention in the hope that they can make it better and less conspicuous, but for now he's building and selling a limited number of Snot Guns himself for $134.86 (USD), shipping and handling included in the continental US.
