A Horological Peacock Feeding . . . Or? Caption Competition #35
by Ian Skellern
Believe it or not, this stylized peacock pecking at a bowl full of ears of wheat is actually a fully functional horological component. The “bowl” is a cam, while the peacock controls the instantaneous second time zone jump mechanism of the Fabergé DTZ Visionnaire.
But what other story might explain what’s going on here? Could it actually be a new avian constellation in the night sky? Please share your ideas in the comments below.
Congratulations to imageWIS for his “Star Trek” caption, featuring Scotty not being a watchmaker caption in last week’s caption competition. Don’t miss that and all of last week’s excellent entries, including David’s exceptional Iain M. Banks “Culture” spaceship reference, at Surely Created By Extraterrestrials: Caption Competition #34.
