Hello you lucky, sexy individuals.

I am an avid watcher of the BBC 2 show 'Dragons Den'. This has encouraged me to attempt to come up with an idea that would make the "Dragons" part with their hard earned wads of moola. Sadly I have failed completely to come up with a sensible, get-rich-quick scheme and I continue to live the life of a pauper in my squalid Edinburgh flat (I haven't vacuumed for 2 months.)

Anyway.

If you were to go on the show what would your idea be?

To get the ball rolling, here's my idea.

An automated tagging device for stories on spoof/satire/parody websites. I would call it the 'Tag-O-Matic 3000'. Not a funny idea but there you go.

I can imagine the response from the "Dragons."

*Imitates Duncan Bannatyne's dulcett tones*

"Aal tell ye where I aam. Aaam oot."

I'm sure you guys and gals can come up with some ingenius ideas that will be infinitely more amusing than my idea.

Simon

The Dragon Exterminator XE2000.

This marvellous invention can locate and hunt down any dragon, and exterminate it in a blinding flash of cash.

I know it looks like a sub-machine gun, but it is very specific with its targets.

Hi Simon

When I saw the words 'sexy individuals' I knew I could help you with this one.

My idea - and I've had many sleepless nights over this - is a portable inflatable bus shelter - along the lines of a bouncy castle. Brilliant eh?

I mean many is the time I've got very wet waiting for a 69!

Luv Patti

Debbie,

Not sure the Dragons would invest in a device that would eliminate them!

On the other hand, get yerself in the Den, flash a bit of thigh to distract them, then obliterate the grumpy dragons before making off with all the piles of dosh they have on those little tables next to them. Excellent!

Patti,

Oooo eeer missus! Very naughty!

Like the inflatable bus stop idea. Many a time I've been stuck between two bus stops miles apart without the necessary motivation to keep walking. Inflate the portable bus stop and hey presto you can park your arse and comfortably wait for the bus wherever you are without getting wet (guffaw!).

Glad you like the idea Simon. I was a bit worried about the inflating bit but my other half reassures me that I have enough hot air and wind to cope with that side of it.....bless!

PS. Do you think Deborah and Hilary have ever had to wait for a 69?

I've never had to wait for a 69. I find they come whenever you need them.

Although...I do prefer a 99. It's the flake.

At first I thought this was some sort of weird thread about bondage. But now I see it's like what we call Shark Tank here in the US.

I want to design and make geek inspired bicycles.

Seriously.

Oh. They've encased him in Carbonite. He should be quite well protected. If he survived the freezing process, that is.

Are they bikes with built in technology?

I say! That there Patti's a bit previous. Cheeky monkey.

I'd design a funny story generator.

And then blame somebody else for it.

Confused?

I know I am...

Skoob.

Patti,

I reckon Deborah and Hilary are probably chauffeur driven everywhere so they probably never have to get the bus.

*Wink*

Ellie,

I can see why you thought this was some sort of pervy bondage thread given the tone.

Unfortunately I'm not keen on bicycles ever since I fell off one as a 14 year old and broke my arm. I rely on tricycles these days. Much safer.

Also, are you telling me you don't have dragons in the US? I find that hard to believe. There's loads of the fire breathing swines over here.

*Insert mother-in-law/dragon joke here*

My idea is a hammer that when applied to the head of a tv presenter, it cures his bosideness, or coke habit.
Admittedly it would be a punt for a dragon.
