too long, the human race, when it hears a noise in the house at
night, has been forced to carry a baseball bat in one hand and
a flashlight in another. After spending decades trying to improve
this system, the top engineers in the world came up with an amazing
breakthrough concept: Put a flashlight inside a baseball bat!
Now you carry a single device that enables you to both shine a
light on an intruder, AND strike him with a bat. Unfortunately,
because the light is in the end of the bat, you cannot do both
of these things at the same time. Your best bet is to instruct
the intruder to stand absolutely still while you take your backswing,
so you'll be sure to make contact with him.
item is not just a highly effective weapon against criminals with
tiny brains. It can also provide a definite ''edge'' in a baseball
game, where the batter can use the light to flash Morse Code signals
to his teammates, or to temporarily blind members of the opposing
team. How do you think the so-called ''New York Yankees'' keep
winning the World Series?
is the perfect gift for the sports enthusiast on your list, as
well as anybody who needs personal protection. Your top New York
fashion models all have flashlight bats tucked away in their handbags.
It also fits perfectly on a keychain.
