Hanging alarm clock does a spider act

The cunning orb is suspended from the ceiling on a cable, which immediately starts to retract the clock upward once the alarm goes off.

If you never grew up with the childhood song "Eensy Weensy Spider," it's about the peekaboo adventures of a spider as it ascends, descends, and ascends yet again along the water spout.

Well, the $29.10 Hanging Alarm Clock seems to have spun a Web around the same nursery rhyme, only with more ominous overtures that recall the monster spider Shelob that almost made a meal of Frodo in Fellowship of the Ring.

The cunning orb is suspended from the ceiling on a 12-inch cable, which immediately starts to retract the clock upward once the alarm goes off. The only way to shut it up is, well, to hop out of bed and yank the alarm all the way down.

Even if you do give it a wallop to put it into snooze, just be warned that it's a short reprieve. The orb will start wailing and climbing again until you hit the stop button. Deviously annoying enough to make you hit the roof. Literally.
