Is this a Greg Sargent article about Green Lantern?

That guy might have issues

Catcopter did it better.  Way, way better.

As God is my witness. . .

This would have actually been cool if they strapped a real (live) ostrich to the copter and flew it around to see what its reaction might be.

As stated above, the Catcopter was the only one of these "dead animal copters" that ever needed to be done. At this point, this "artist" is just beating a dead horse.

Oh crap, I just gave him another dead animal idea, didn't I?

Looks like something Survival Research Laboratories would come up with.

Can it defeat the pterodactyl though?

And sadly, a hedgehog was also killed.

I figured everyone would get it without the pic.

For some reason I had a vision of an Ostrich flying a helicopter in the artistic style of Seth MacFarlane.

I think you can post the pic without the quote and be fine, but the pic is always better.

Next project: Christopher Reeve.

Too soon?

Lemme guess, next he'll use a pig? I'm not saying he's predictable or anything... Pfft!

I do not wish to know what his childhood was like.

And has anyone looked into his "special basement"?

The day I saw a video of a flying lawnmower is the day I realized that it is possible to rig anything to fly.
 
2013-07-31 04:10:05 PM
Why would someone DO this, again??

SirTanon: Catcopter did it better.  Way, way better.


You know it was the same guy(s) that did it, right?  It's right there on the page...


But I agree: the "Orvillecopter" is better.  More elegant.

I see I've been beaten to the Joust reference. Carry on.

This is now the point where it's no longer fun and novelty.
