Ah, let's lament the great crossbow toothpick shooter. This was the biggest fad since the fidget spinner, and was all over China. Until the pampered only-child boys started killing each other. Seems you could easily substitute a finishing nail.
I read the article on the Guardian and immediately put in an order for one, before Canada could ban them. Look out red squirrels! The one I ordered was a friggin compound bow, twice the power of a single bow. Alas, China banned the things before the order could get out. Drat, who da thunk it?
Now we need a spinning disk shooter where you can substitute a sharpened quarter. Look out squirrels!
ps. I have never actually hit the stupid things, but I've gotten close enough to keep them from digging into my cottage. One look at my beady eyes and they run. :)
