Creative and Annoying Alarm Clocks

This is kind of like the alarm clock that is just out of reach… and mentioning either of them feels like a sales pitch, but I enjoyed thinking about how this new one would wake me up… and annoy me at the same time.  Please don’t get this for me!  Don’t get either one for me!
