Marlin Mascots . . . . The A to Z of Slightly Strange Unknown Victorian Inventors and Explorers
Another inventor who had known the right Honourable Arnold Alexander Axle Armstrong-Atlas and Georgina Gramophone Goshwell with whom there had been rumours of a relationship. although Merlin always denied everything claiming that the rumour was started by Benjamin Braithwaite Browning to deflect from his own misdemeanours .
He realized though through their work though, that sound could be converted to motion so that it would be possible to create a sound powered motor. Inventing the Mascots Motion Motor, an incredibly clever device because the louder the noise the more powerful the motor became. And by building in a regulator and energy storage system the Mascots Motion Motor could be used even through quiet periods.
It was said that the Mascots Motion Motor could provide clean limitless energy for thousands of years by turning the sounds of nature into regular motion with no pollution and at almost no cost to the users. A claim thought to have been proved by extensive tests carried out by the British Coal Board, but the Coal Board Chairman Mr Haggy Hatcher suddenly announced the shock news that the device had been destroyed and thrown down a disused mineshaft. The only witness a Mr Skippy Kangaroo saying he saw two men, one a muscular chap with a green glow and a rather ripped shirt on, carrying a Danister Detector while the other was shouting . . . . Haggy Haggy Haggy . . . out out out. . . Although most conspiracy theorists have always claimed the British Coal Board just wanted the machine destroyed. Strangely Marlin Mascots was never seen again and a brief statement from the British Coal Board announced that the news of the destruction of his machine was too much for Mr Mascots. And that he had gone completely mad convinced he was a penguin, and was convalescing at a secret location. Thought by some to be the Green Acres Retirement Home for Naval Officers, because of its secure facilities.
Sadly there are only a few rough sketches left of the original machine as all the detailed drawings and plans were destroyed in a localized fire at the British Coal Boards central records office.
