East Village gumball machine dispenses ideas

idea-gumball-machine.jpg

Neatorama through the proxy of a reader located this bubblegum machine in the East Village that has been savvily modded to dispense ideas for fifty cents apiece, each absolutely guaranteed to be actionable or your money back. Buy a moose, it might tell you, or Invent a Jump-To-Conclusions mat! Start a fire! Get a circumcision! Kidnap your ex-girlfriend! Shave a chicken! Breed a budgie with a mule! The possibilities are endless.

I think the only thing more amazing than feeding quarters into this thing is coming up with the subliminal instructions with which to impregnate the brightly colored ovums inside. Your suggestion with ideas I can sell in my soon-to-be-created idea dispenser, in the comments please. But where do I get a gumball machine in Berlin?

    Of course much like the items on offer from the left, no one guarantees they are good ideas or that they are good for you.

    This guy probably got his idea from an idea dispensing machine.
