Bungee Jump Squirrel Feeder

Love em or hate em, you'll like this new feeder that makes squirrels "work" for their food while entertaining you at the same time.
  Called a Squngee, it's a bungee-type spring-loaded metal cable that you attach to a tree or bird feeder pole. Two corn cobs screw to eye hooks at the end of the cable. When squirrels jump on the corn, they bounce up and down and swing back and forth as they eat.
  Scott Shultz, the Eagan, Minn. inventor, says the feeder keeps squirrels away from bird feeders. "I always say to put them about 10 ft. away from the bird feeders. They can't resist it," he says.
  While exhibiting at the Minnesota State Fair last fall, someone asked him how to keep the bluejays off the squirrel feeder. He didn't know. "It's one thing to get the squirrels off your bird feeder but another to get the birds off your squirrel feeder," he jokes.  
  Sells for $16.95 plus S&H. Shultz also sells a video cassette of five choreographed musical segments with "Squngee Squirrels" that repeats throughout the 30-min. tape for $4.95.
