Doghound Piggy Bank
When is a piggy bank not a piggy bank? When it’s a Hungry Hound Coin Bank, silly! Already a hit amongst dippy yen hoarders in Japan, this barking mad savings receptacle resembles a shoe box with a cute little bow wow on top. So far, so daft. But drop a few coins into pooch’s bowl and he goes berserk, wolfing down the wonga in a disconcertingly frenzied manner. Grrr!
Okay, he doesn’t actually swallow your money, he merely om-nom-noms it into a little hole in his bowl. Indeed Choken Bako (as he’s known in Japan) is so enthusiastic he looks like he’s having a seizure. Maybe he is. Who knows? It&rsquo’s worth dropping in some shrapnel just to see this bonkers doggie doing his thing.
If only those greedy bankers had kept everyone’s money in a kennel-load of Hungry Hounds the global economic meltdown would never have occurred. At least that’s what our accountant reckons. Lend us a quid. Woof!
