A Line from a Movie

Another idiot asking for a bike

While entertaining somebody, usually a male adult, it never fails, with utter “I want a bicycle! Make me a bicycle, clown!” Then, he proceeded to tell me about the movie Wedding Crasher, as if I had never seen the movie.  My comeback is, “Did you see the outtakes where they 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 create a bike. Either as a challenge or because they just watched the movie and thought I could do a better bike?  I have made a couple of bikes over the years, some simple and others complications.

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.
