"And Claim 1 is also unduely restrictive." I was thinking the same thing! Despite the typical obfuscated dialect known as "Patent English," this claim is incredibly narrow. Even if this silly invention might have had some commercial value, this patent offers very little protection.

I love this silly device. It reminds me of the time that we had a birthday celebration for my dad at the family gathering place. The cake we ordered was a circus theme and had a paper circus tent mounted on straws above the cake. The wait staff had lit the candles on the cake which was sitting on a sideboard near our table. Much to our horror, we noticed the entire circus tent go up in flames. !!
