I used to think Balloon Animals was the saddest art and then I met an Ice Sculptor.

Five minutes of legacy dude, five minutes of legacy.

When he made that beautiful swan and said sweetly to me "You know that Oxymandias was a whiny little biatch."  I wept at the poignancy of his words.

I was so choked up I was barely able to make it over to the crudite and gobble down some artichoke dip.

That was pretty cool!

That's very nice, but I was pretty impressed with the Pikachu some balloon guy made for me.

Why asinine?

Neat.

Ditto the comments on the tag. That's cool.

anyone got a screen shot? Work doesn't allow the u-toobs.

I used to be able to make a juggling poodle on a unicycle. But I think that only took two balloons.

a 20-foot dinosaur takes forever and leaves virtually no time for your average clown to get drunk and molest your wife and kids.

Making animals out of balloons? *YAWN* Big deal. I don't like to be like everyone else, so I make balloons out of animals.

Here's a link to a different source that has 6 still pictures for those who can't youtube.  This site loaded a hell of a lot quicker for me too.  Yahoo sucks.

Making people happy by doing something cool ain't how I would define "asinine".

Bart Simpson should have bought balloons instead of those crappy sponges.

"but challenge them to make a 20 foot balloon dinosaur sculpture like this guy did"

Who the hell has time to seek out, and offer challenges to, balloon twisting clowns?

Asinine tag? Seriously?

I get it- since it's obviously cool, but you sneered at it, you must be that much cooler.
 
2013-04-26 02:10:07 PM
That's neat, but I like the guy that made Bag End from the shire more...

Did you know you said this when you wrote it?

/A balloon guy who makes Pikachus out in public might be someone to avoid. Just sayin'.

So we can just replace "than" with "then" and it's not the Weeners on Fark? Fine. We've just simplified everything. "Than" is no more.

it is not a matter of "time" it is a matter perogative, gumption. to challange others to reach for their true potential.

Ozymandias.  Good story though.

I would imagine this is one of the least stressful jobs on the planet.

In my day, maniraptorans didn't have feathers. And we liked it that way!

/At least they'll never try to stick feathers on my mosasaurs...
