    Saw a listing on eBay for Cuckoo Clock "cucumber weights".

    Saw another wanting to sell a "grape leaf" pendulum. Maple leaf anyone?

    Everyone has their own way of describing everything. A Bawo & Dotter catalog compares gong rod sets to "a row of knitting needles".

    Conversely, hot dog weights and a spinach pendulum would make for a rather unique clock. :nutjob:

    I've seen cuckoo motifs with grape vines and leaves, often related to the Sour Grapes fable.
