The world's meanest alarm clock

In the continuing battle between man and alarm clock, man is currently way in the lead.

When the alarm clock starts bleating and ruining sleep, man can always rely on the wondrous snooze button to win the battle. But, it seems as if man's many victories, and general gloating, haven't gone unnoticed.

The alarm clock federation have taken time away from wound-licking to create the ultimate man-defeating machine.

In a brainstorm that probably took place behind the numbers of a giant alarm clock, they asked a simple question: would man rise faster in the morning if his money was being shredded? The answer was an overwhelming yes.

The more time you spend in bed, the more cash you lose. Mysteriously, no one quite knows the origin of the machine. Only that it's here and it's not taking snooze for an answer.
