image for World's most imprecise clock created
It can't untell the wrong time

Children at Mowtown School, Illinois, have created the world's most imprecise clock. The impressive structure stretches grandly between the sandpit and the water trough.

The device is said by some to be one of the most impressive pieces of machinery for many years. Charles Braston, spokesperson for the children said:

"It really is an amazing feat. The impreciseness of the clock is tremendous, we've been watching it for what must be hours now, but according to the clock, we've been watching it for between 4 and a half milliseconds and forever."

The device works on a principle of non-machinery, ie. there are no moving parts, it just sits there and waits for the viewer to make up their mind on what the time is.

"The device is just ahead of rocks in the time-keeping world."

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
