Many balloon twisters will tell you the answer is anywhere they want, but I put a little thought into this question and have come up with the true answer. An 800-pound gorilla can only twist balloons where the zoo keeper allows it to go. The zoo keeper is controlled by the zoo management and the trustees. Their actions are founded on what the public dictates, so the answer is to the question is… you the public, tells an 800-pound gorilla where to twist.
I would like to thank all the people who have hired me to twist balloons at their parties these past 24 years and for allowing me the opportunity to entertain your family and friends.
