Rube Goldberg machine
A Rube Goldberg machine is a deliberately over-engineered machine that performs a very simple task in a very complex fashion, usually including a chain reaction. The expression is named after American cartoonist and inventor Rube Goldberg. Since then, the expression has expanded to denote any form of overly confusing or complicated system. For example, news headlines include "Is Rep. Bill Thomas the Rube Goldberg of Legislative Reform?" and "Retirement 'insurance' as a Rube Goldberg machine".

Throw a bag through the cornhole board to hit a car that pushes the ball down the string which sets off a chain of dominoes that hits a car pushing it down a path that sets off another chain of dominoes that hits a ball that rolls down another platform finally pushing play on my record play to fill my house with the sweet tunes of The Toasters.
