Half Dollar Fun

A REAL HONKER

YOU’LL FLIP OVER THIS ONE!

Instructions for Half Dollar Fun

Drill a hole in the checkout counter just next to the cash register. Run a small wire up through the hole and solder it onto the back of a tab switch. A tab switch or button switch is a thin contact switch which makes contact when touched. Then glue the tab or button switch to the counter. Then glue the half dollar to the button or tab switch. Attach the small wires coming out (one ground wire) back through a 12 volt transformer. Then run the wires to a horn. (This circuit is just like hooking up a door bell…) So when the half dollar is touched the horn sounds. Your best bet is to get a wiring diagram for a door bell.

Usually, the customer sees the half dollar and tries to pick it up when no one is looking. Of course, the horn honks loudly and all the others in the store have a good laugh. It is funny, but you might lose a customer if he doesn’t have a sense of humor. You might think this one over before you try it, but:

IT WILL BRING ATTENTION TO YOUR STORE, PLUS HAPPY CUSTOMERS

THE JOKE’S ALWAYS FUNNIER ON SOMEONE ELSE, BUT IT MIGHT COST YOU BUSINESS.

To be or not to be is NOT the question.
The question is what you want to become: a success or failure. It’s up to you.
