Early Japanese chemtrail experimental weather modification machine and combination essential oil diffusers for larger garden parties , as used in a later Kate Bush videos .Imperial Inspection required to ensure the correct balance of flowery essential oils using the ceremonial dip stick sword combo to ensure the most excellent quality control of fragrances .

Early Mk 1 acoustic device found to be useful for acoustic location of persons with a fondness for beer and beans and or firing large caliber noisemakers .Accurate to within four kippers or a large tray of Sushi .

Well it sounded funny by the Spike Milligan voice in my head

Ohh those, they do nothing, we built them because they keep the Greeen Party and that annoying Swedish brat off our backs, as they believe we are saving the planet by cleaning the atmosphere with them.

We shall use it to fart in the direction of the sons of hamsters and fathers who smell of elderberries .

We are perfecting it to disarm someone armed with a piece of fruit .

Any Monty Python reference is purely intentional as the Tuba like weapons have already mastered the theme song. The Liberty Bell by John Phillip Sousa .
