The Joy Buzzer

Soren Sorenson Adams (May 24, 1879 – October 20, 1963) was a 
Danish-born inventor who founded Adams Magic Manufacturing in
1906. He created novelty products such as the Joy Buzzer, Cachoo 
Sneeze Powder, the Dribble Glass and the Exploding Cigar.

Other prank products included the nut can with a spring snake. He
was once offered the rights to the Whoppee Cushion, but deemed
it “too indelicate”. He is credited with having invented over 650 joke
shop items.
