Funny you should say that. My wife bought me one.
I thought it was a ridiculous gag gift at first, but it's come in quite handy when the kids are sleeping and I'm pickin'. I work the night shift, so oftentimes I'm up late on the weekends because my clock is all screwed up, so I stay awake and pick. I actually use it quite a bit.
If those kids or momma was to wake up... Well, I'd ask that you folks make sure I'm buried beneath the willow tree on the south 40.
