The Twelve Geeks of Christmas

Are you fed up with partridges, ladies dancing and gold rings?

Well, if you are, this is your chance to create your own 'alternative' version of the '12 Days of Christmas' by choosing things which only 'Geeks' would know about.


Instead of sending turtle doves to your true love, how about choosing a laser virtual keyboard as an alternative input device?

This tiny device laser-projects a keyboard on any flat surface... you can then type away accompanied by simulated key click sounds.

Don't fancy a keyboard?


Well if you are bored with water that doesn't look like futuristic alien mouthwash, here might be just the Geek item you need.

Still not convinced? Still looking for that ultra-cool output device?

Try an 'annoy-a-tron' instead - you know your friends and family will love you for this idea!

This innocent looking piece of electronics generates a short, but highly annoying, beep in uneven intervals, every few minutes. Using the built-in magnet, hide it carefully and let the madness begin!


Your Task

Create a PowerPoint presentation to display the Geek replacements for French hens, laying geese and milking maids.

Don't forget to include the adapted verse. The original words can be found here.

Many thanks to Anna Martin for suggesting this idea.
