Guillotine Slingshot: The Most Dangerous Elasticised Weapon

It's hard to imagine what kind of fairytales a young German boy has to grow up with to inspire a life spent crafting a ridiculous slingshot-based arsenal, but Joerg Sprave seems particularly endeared to Hansel & Gretel. So to celebrate the upcoming film loosely based on that story, Joerg has created what has to be one of the scariest devices to ever come out of his armoury: a massive bazooka that can behead whatever or whoever is in its sights.

It is of course designed with witches in mind, making it easy to take them out of commission with one well-placed shot. But there's no reason it can't also come in handy at picnics, slicing up a watermelon for all to enjoy. Or for finding and prepping the perfect the perfect Christmas turkey. The possibilities are endless. [YouTube]
