    That's been done, I think it's the VFE Enterprise Phaser, and this thread has been done at least once or twice at other times.

    Danelectro Robert Dogbey. Not sure what it does, but it fits in with the current tycoon series of pedals.

    And also the Golden Oligarch (Klon clone).

    Stupid Robot - talk box
    Turkey Baster - fuzz/OD

    Aside from some of the more whacked-out names Z. Vex and Way Huge have used on their pedals, these three suggestions are excellent.

    I think almost any effect, of any type, called a "flaming toupee," would be hilarious, but to me it suggests some sort of filter-sweeping fuzz with high-frequency overtones going nuts.

    I think "Stupid Robot" could've been an alternate name for the WMD Geiger Counter. And "Turkey Baster"...many possibilities there, not just fuzz/OD.

    I think I remember a Star Wars themed pedal thread a while back...I believe I submitted a Boba FET drive and a Garbage Chute Compressor back then...I still think they are funny :)

    I ripped the guts out of a Fender Chorus pedal like the one below and built a fuzz pedal using the existing pots. I then used a sharpie to rename it the Fuzzy Bhorus.

    I dig your flaming toupee suggestion! For the Turkey Baster I was guided by the punny idea of keeping things juicy... :lol:
