A Shredder of the Hand

Wow, it's been almost a month with no updates. Sorry about that. I got a little busy with things.

Here's an amusing little bit of Engrish I ran into a few months ago. For those who want to rid themselves of their useless appendages, I give you...

THE HAND SHREDDER!



The only problem is once you've shredded one hand, you can't shred the other one! They need to come out with an automatic hand-shredder.

Is there a smaller "Finger Shredder" model for the tech-savvy Yakuza?

_@_v - not broken. it's for despots who want to shred hands but don't have a ready power source. you stick your victim's hand in it and crank away...

_@_v - and it's not just for hands. hannibal lector uses it when he wants some shredded feet for breakfast...

Doesn't everyone need a hand shredder? I think this what everyone will be getting for Christmas from me.
