Suicidal Teapot is a teapot, which hits itself until it breaks.
We may sympathize with its action as an attempt of suicide, or may observe its motion as a pure mechanical function.
In any case, the self-destruction continues until the teapot shatters into pieces, splashing out the tea it contains. The destruction will be completed with high-voltage short-circuit blast on the fabric circuit beneath.
You may use this teapot as a suicidal apparatus, by sitting beside with a cup of tea and waiting until the final moment arrives. If you are lucky, you will be “properly” electrocuted.
