That's some mighty fine "memory erase" you're drinking (or smoking). How about sharing with the rest of the class?

I am half temped to order the materials to make another button box, and put it in a case like that, and set it to play random sound effects (explosions, alarms, laughs, belches, flatulence, etc.) when someone pushes the button. (I should probably re-build the one I have with a nicer container at some point, and document it for y'all.)

Maybe with a little transmitter than can activate a remote speaker placed nearby? Like one that shouts "Hey!" from behind the hapless victim?

Much as I'd like one that throws pies, I'm morally unable to waste food like that. Well, unable to waste pie like that.

Jinx is in for a long, dull existence by resisting any urge to press the button.

An 8" aluminium foil pie dish with an inch of white, low density plastic foam foam in the bottom, and a not-too-thick layer of shaving cream on top simulates an edible missile without wasting actual tasty calories or injecting too large a quantity of cream in the target's nasal orifices....

(Slightly - but not completely - OT, I often wondered if Terry Jones had nose plugs inserted for this sketch. )
A little knowledge is..... the default setting.
