That reminds me of something I've been meaning to ask you for a while. I had to do some patent searching at work (possibly the most boring job I've ever been given - right up there with stagging on at 2am) and the search reports that accompanied the patents really confused me. The majority of the reports were clearly linked to the original patent, but every now and again I'd find what appeared to be a totally unrelated one. The one that really sticks in my mind was finding a patent for the mirror system in an SLR camera referenced as relevant to an application for a specific type of bearing. Is this some kind of patent office joke, or was this really thought to be relevant?

If this was a US application, it's quite likely they were being Mongs. If not, the devil may be there in the detail.

Patent searching the way we do it isn't that bad -- I have to process an awful lot of visual information very very quickly, which is a challenge. Those that work in other technical fields don't have it so easy, although many of them don't envy my position because I have to process visual, mechanical information which not everyone is good at. The search tools that we have are also significantly better than anything available to the public. This makes life significantly easier.

While we're talking about US search reports, some of them can be utterly crap. I have even seen a combine harvester cited as relevant prior art against part of a mechanical watch.

Thinking about it, I'm pretty sure it was a US search report. I just couldn't see how anyone could be quite that dumb without it being a running joke, but I suppose human stupidity is infinite...

Yes, some of the US PTO's work really is that pump. There is someone who works there doing electronic implementation of music who insists on giving his applications a classification which relates to mechanical gear work for watches! This forms a reasonable proportion of my classification work!

I sincerely hope that Tinwalt still lurking, says he will now be fuming about the British thug gang and their rampant anti-Americanism.:D

I sell rubber penises, merkins & associated items to the retail & wholesale trade.

Obviously these days almost all our production comes from China, but I can remember the glory days of the trade when many of the Northern mill towns of Lancashire & Yorkshire had a least one dildo factory or a love egg production facility.

Happy days, happy days

The Rampant Rabbit is a registered design, so we are not allowed to copy it.

However, we are about to launch a new model, the "Horny Hare" which is in the same market poistion.

Thanks for your interest. In light of your current job as a pole dancer perhaps you might consider a sponsorship deal from one of my factories?

The Guangdong Interior Goods & Rubber Cock Factory No3 Ltd would like to find a suitable outlet for their advertising budget, and you might be that very outlet.

If you are agreeable, I will speak to Mr Hu Hee, their CEO, and take discussions further.

AT this point I would say back on Topic, but you already are.

I'd be interested in buying a box or two of "Wavy Willies" if you still do them.

Sorry Firefly

We had to discontinue the "Wavy Willy" line after some unfortunate incidents and a product liability claim.

We had specified level 3 moistureproofing for the battery model, and level 5 for the mains version (due to the higher inherent risks of 240 volts vs 9 volts).

Sadly, the factory got its wires crossed, both metaphorically and literally and the young lady involved was hospitalised with quite severe burns.

The manufacturer was sued for negligence, pain & suffering and mental suffering, so the line was discontinued.

Funnily enough, I hadn't really envisaged you as prime client material, but whatever floats your boat, as we say in the trade.

Perhaps you'd consider one of our "merkin-lite" pubic wigs? Made from real hair, although not real human hair for hygene purposes, they come in a variety of colours including "GWAR ginger", "dumb blonde", "gordon brown" and "natural" (which is of course, nothing of the sort)

Thanks agin for your interest in our products. You can view our catalogue online at

www.merkins-and-stuff.com

Kind regards

Fluffy

Damn, as many of you know I'm a Crab farmer and theres nothing like the Wavy Willy to get the Crabs Xmas party going full swing.

Sorry to hear they had so many accidents, but I suppose it was inevitable in a product that requires so much power to thrust ratio.

Theres a few older Crabs that may look good in the Merkins though, Id take 12 ounces of rough Shag if you do it.

Do you have any 'Rubber Jubblies' in stock this festive season, I would need a gross of them fitted with the electric tasslers and light up thruppeny's.

Finally I am on the look out for some perspex 'Freckle Shields' for the OAP's Xmas lunch.

Yours in hope
