imageThink Geek is now offering a unique portable iPod speaker system and guitar amp made from actual PVC pipe. Priced at $150, the PyP-Bomb offers 18 watts of power and features an internal liquid acid battery that gives you “days of play time.”

“Made from durable PVC pipe this tiny little powerhouse dominates with sound,” says the store. “Simply jack in your iPod or your guitar and crank the volume. The PyP-Bomb gets seriously loud with 18 watts of power blasting from its single enclosed speaker. Sound output is optimized for the iPod (or other external music source) when using the 3.5mm phono input jack. Plug your guitar into the standard 1/4” input jack and the one-of-a-kind electric/acoustic switch enables you to actively control the frequency response of the amplifier and cater it to the requirements of the instrument you are using.”

What were they thinking when they came up with the name for this product?

Picture this scenario at the airport luggage screening area:

TSA: “Excuse me sir, what is this object in your luggage?”

Traveler: “Oh, that’s my PypBomb. Isn’t it awesome?”

Traveler is instantly surrounded by police with their weapons drawn, and hauled away while screaming “But it’s just an amplifier/speaker system for my iPod!”
