    Greetings all ye forumites, here my plea!

    I've got a tricky assignment to solve and I could use some help with it. I need to transform a hairbrush into something it isn't. I need to find a new use for it, something that has nothing to do with brushing hair but still uses the brushes natural shape to its advantage. Also, you still need to see that it once was (or still is) a hairbrush.

    An example: We have this cylindrical brush at home, and I got the idea to use it as the centerpiece of a music box (you know, the ones with a little metal arm which you turn to play). I might use this for my assignment, but I'm stuck with it in my head and could really use some help in dreaming up other areas of use for a brush.

    If you've got any odd, funny or practical ideas, please let me hear them. Thanks in advance.

    Well, besides the obvious uses (Dildo), you could make a table cleaner, by making a case and adjusting the brush so it can rotate inside, then make a hole in the case's lower hole, so whenever you pass it over a table, the brush will rotate and little fibers and dust will get stuck in the brush.

    Tie a piece of spring to it, tie it round your neck and job done. You've just created an all new, visionary fashion accessory - the brushlace (patent pending).

    Please tell me this is some bullshit filler Gen Ed. requirement class you're in that has retarded assignments given out.

    PLEASE

    WHEN I WAS IN SCHOOL I WOULD HAVE KILLED FOR SOMETHING LIKE THIS

    AS SUCH MY ANSWER WILL BE IN ALL CAPS WITH NO PUNCTUATION

    THINK ABOUT WHAT A HAIRBRUSH DOES BRO ITS BRISTLES ARE USED TO SEPARATE AND DE-TANGLE VERY FINE AND LONG OBJECTS

    LIKE IF SMUEL HAD MORE THAN ONE DICK YOU COULD USE THE BRUSH ON THEM SINCE THEY WOULD ALL BE SHORT AND VERY FINE

    I personally can't stand Craft Wars. Why does Tori Spelling even have a job?

    Zanza's response is the most efficient. It applies to the hairbrush and Tori Spelling equally.

    Yes...
    What class are you taking, is it permaculture or some shit like that?
    I truly hated my permaculture classes.

    get one of those brushes with a flat back and turn it into a paddle for spanking your girl's (or guy's) ass.

    You can set it on fire and you have a torch. Or you can use it as throwing or stabbing weapon. You can also use to make a holes into ground for plant seeds. Also, you can like pretend it is a microphone, magic wand or a toy helicopter. Toothbrush anyone?

    Since this is a pointless busy-work assignment, do a half-arsed job.

    The traditional secondary function of a hairbrush is spanking. Call it a spanking-paddle and concentrate on education instead.

    A creative demonstration should ensure a passing grade.

    Craft a sword using the brush as the hilt. That way, when you get all sweaty during a duel to the death, you can wipe your brow and put those stray hairs back in place all in one smooth motion. Because, win or lose, the important thing is looking your best.

    Mail sorter?

    Replace the bristles with push-pins and have a miniature pin-board?

    Down on the farm, three brushes were tacked together for us to wipe the crud off our boots before entering the house. The handles were useful so that we didn't have to touch the offending matter on the bristles.

    Use for decorative plastering?

    Extra large pipe-cleaner?

    The bristles with the balled ends make really good massagers.

    Wrap the bristles in wire, and turn it into a hybrid multi-point teslacoil/tazer.
