Early Birds Catch Worms...

Concept alarms for sensible people who hate mornings...

*The Pulp Fiction Alarm: When this alarm goes off, you'll be jabbed in the chest with some adrenaline. Probably the only thing that would turn me into a morning person!

*The Back to the Future Alarm: My personal favorite (and I think this one would make it's inventor MILLIONS). This alarm looks like a mini Delorean and comes equipped with its own flux capacitor. When your alarm goes off, this little gem actually rewinds time so that you can wake up several hours later but still not be late.

*The Percolator: Remember your parents' coffee pot? Not only did it brew fantastic smelling coffee, but it made that charming perking sound. When this alarm goes off, it actually starts perking an amazing cup of joe. You'll be awoken gradually by the ever increasing perk and once you're up, you can start your day with a cup of coffee in bed.

*The Jetsons: This alarm gets you going before you get going. It sounds with the perky "Jetsons" theme song, then you'll be robotically whisked off, showered, shaved, dressed, and out the door before even becoming coherent.

*The Monster's Inc.: You'll be terrified into alertness by a top-notch crew of scary, yet lovable, monsters.

*The Kid Brother: There is no snooze button on this pesky alarm. When it goes off, it actually smacks you in the face and then runs off laughing! If you don't catch it, it'll be back to deliver dose after dose after obnoxious dose.

*The Cake Boss: Guaranteed to wake you up, but also highly likely to leave you in a foul mood. You know Buddy's sister, Mary? Yeah. With this alarm, you will be jolted awake by Mary's nagging. (comes with a trial prescription of Cymbalta)

*The Vacationator: Waking up each morning for work is nearly impossible, but if I'm waking up to do something exciting, like climbing a fourteener, catching a flight to somewhere exotic, or to swim with stingrays, I have no problem getting up. The Vacationator uses hypnotic suggestion while you sleep to subtly convince you that instead of getting up for work, you're actually getting up to have an adventure. By the time you realize you've been duped, you'll be wide awake and raring to go!

Maybe if someone would invent a few of the afore mentioned alarms I'd manage to be alert before 10:00 a.m.!

It's a tie between "Back to the Future" and "The Peculator." Maybe combine them? Turn back time and perk coffee???
