Dizzy up the squirrel

If you have bird feeders, then chances are you have squirrels trying to steal the bird food. I've never figured out what it is that draws them to it. But I've seen some pretty crazy contraptions that aim to prevent this from happening. This has to be the most unique and apparently effective method yet.

The Twirl-A-Squirrel does exactly what the name says. When a squirrel jumps onto the feeder, a motor starts spinning the feeder until the pesky little thief is gone.

I'm not sure where you would get one of these, or if it is a homemade gadget, but I know several people that would love to have one.
