    They do suck, surprisingly powerful I got one stuck to me and had to have it removed at the hospital. :eek:

    Can't see it going down well as a gag though.

    How about reversing the motor in a vacuum cleaner, and making it blow things all over?

    Benny Hill probably doesn't serve too often, as an inspiration for the goody two shoes, wholesome, all American, family values, children's entertainer. His dated, saucy humour, rarely ventured much further than the accidental disrobement of a nurse or policewomen. But he was a great clown in the slapstick tradition of Chaplin, Laurel and Hardy, Keaton and Lloyd and there is much of value to learn by watching him. I can't picture the exact scene but I am sure Hill, at some point, would have used a vacuum cleaner to accidentally suck or blow off a girls clothing.

    Roald Atkinson playing Mr. Bean, also had some fun with a vacuum at the dentist.

    Looks like Bean was watching Harvey Korman and Tim Conway on the old Carol Burnett show.
