Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is?

With the sound of Handel's Hallelujah Chorus played every hour on the hour, the Last Supper Wall Clock is a tasteful accoutrement no dining room should be without. No doubt the hearty hallelujahs are inspired by the actual Last Supper, where the disciples began the tradition of breaking into 12-part harmony every time the "hour candle" burned down. This sing-along experience can be enjoyed at family mealtimes without the inconvenience of melted wax on the tablecloth. For those who don't keep a monastic schedule, the clock's designers have thoughtfully programmed it to remain silent between 11 p.m. and 6 a.m. (since, of course, seven hours of sleep is the "holy number"). Made in China (where apparently the sweatshop laborers never sleep).
