Question I hate those blank dummy buttons! What should I replace it with?

Guys,
I have two blank dummy buttons in my horseshoe center console which I want to replace with something useful...
The first one I decided to replace with the in-dash spoiler switch like in the 996 turbo, but I need help with what to do with the last one....

see pic.

didn't someone have a button with what looked like a missile launcher motto on it or something similar a few years back?

When you push it, your garage door opens.

Flame thrower for slow left lane drivers.

Huge spiked boxing glove hidden in the rear quarter panel for people who ride in my blind spot.

Missile launcher for Q-tips who drive slow in any lane.

Missile launcher for people who pull out across multiple lanes, with optional nuclear detonators for people who do it with a cell phone in one hand and a doughnut in the other hand.

Oil slick releaser for tailgaters. Optional bucket of nails for people who do it with their high beams on.

Cheers,
-- Mike
