Re: The Universal Vending Machine

The machine clanks, whistles, and spits them out again. You put them on so you can't hear that financial adviser telling you you don't need another new car.

Inserts a used, empty ballot-box.

They come out again as real bats.

While they are flying around your head you accidentally insert an old woolly hat, your left shoe and a flyswat.
