With everyone’s favorite free-candy holiday approaching, [Slouriesr] set to work building a vomiting ghoul for his Halloween display. He’s calling it a puking pirate and it centers around a pump and some simple plumbing fixtures.
First, the vomit receptacle was made by adding a sink drain with a pop-up stopper to the bottom of a kitty litter bucket. The drain slows the evacuation of liquid into a five gallon bucket below. In that bucket you’ll find a float switch pump used to keep water off of a pool cover. As the bucket fills up the pump turns on and empties the water through a hose ending at the ghoul’s mouth. The result is a 20-second puke cycle sure to delight the trick-or-treaters. Sure, there’s a lot of work to be done to get this guy looking the part, but what a great idea!

funny! Can’t wait for Halloween!
Is it going to be a violent pulsating puke or a constant stream? I can’t wait for a video of this.
Very fun idea, but it needs more video! (At the same time, thanks for posting it early enough for someone to actually implement)
The build is cool, but the site is horrible! Never link to that again!
I like that!
I hope the finished version gets posted along with some video.
