A Line from a Movie

Another idiot asking for a bike

It never fails, while entertaining somebody, usually a male adult with utter “I want a bicycle! Make me a bicycle, clown!” Then, proceed to tell me about the movie Wedding Crasher, as if I have never seen the movie.  My comeback is, “Did you see the outtakes were the beat the snot out of the kids with balloons?” Some have responded, “Oh ya, I remember it now”, which is total nonsense because I made up the scene; others will tell me they have to go back and watch it.

The movie Wedding Crashers, made in 2006 forced many balloon artists to make a bike. Either as a challenge or because just they watched the movie and thought I can do a better bike?  I have made a couple of bikes over the years, some simple and other complicated.

So for those people who ask for a bike?  Here is just another balloon bike that I made several years ago.

To get the colors, I double stuffed all the balloons.
