So a big net and an on board sorting machine.


What about the fish?  I think he forgot there is some stuff we want in our rivers.

But will it be sleek and horrendously overpriced?

I have a Dyson.

You may not have my Dyson.


That is all.

How about a hand dryer that doesn't deafen me whilst soaking my trousers.

Can I use it clean my fish tank?


/Not a euphemism.

And after that, the aliens from Oblivion will get Dyson to design their ocean vacuums.

They're only targeting floating debris. If the fish are floating, you don't really want them.

Not everything that floats is bad.  Maybe it's just a Baby Ruth.

Frogs, turtles, alligators, fish that are feeding on flies (not floating, but close to the surface).

What about the sea of plastic bags?

I'll wait for the Shark river cleaning vacuum.

What's the big deal? If we find that any fish went through the shredding process, we put them back in the river.

I'm surprised he hasn't tapped into the porn market with his revolutionary sucking designs.

Yes, this genius who invents things that solve problems totally forgot about fish. I'm certain that's the case.

Because I need a vacuum cleaner in which the parts rotate at the speed of a Formula One car engine.

That's fine, I've got one of my own.
