I clicked the link without reading the text and was delightfully baffled. Finding out they have a purpose and function is almost a letdown.

I love this one.

There has been no answers to my CQs yet. Smoke signal CW activity is very low in the neighborhood and my chimney is too QRP for DX contacts.

Heh.

Best of the Web, 200%.

Very nice.

The nail clipper key is actually almost practical.

Since a CW operator's signature rhythm is sometime called their 'fist', I'm surprised there isn't a boxing glove key here.

BTW, in 2010 or 11, any CW key is strange.

The video that goes with the suspenders key is hilarious.

OH6DC has a very strange hobby. But then again, I say that as someone who jailbroke my iPhone to use it as an iambic keyer, so my credibility on this matter may be limited.
