Friday Flinging Fun

What other pleasures are there on a Friday afternoon than attempting to get things to go airborne?

I finally succumbed to the seductive lure of................the Chicken Chucker.

This brightly-colored "gun" is actually a miniature trebuchet of sorts and comes packaged with five small chickens. (Refills are available...should chicken be launched and turn up irretrievable.) You place the chicken inside one "tray," snap the top down on it, and pull the trigger. A fowl is flung into the air!

Yes, two chickens will fit in the tray. First attempt of double-cluck chucking resulted in one chicken flung into a co-worker's office across the hall and other chicken landing near my office door.

My editor in chief admitted his jealousy of my new firing arm. He tried it out and got quite an arc with the trajectory.

Why toss paper wads or fire rubber bands......when you can propel poultry?

Sweet!

I don't know. For some reason, I am still partial to The Wedding Slinger.

PK has threatened to bring The Wedding Slinger to your wedding. Well, to the reception at least.

Hey....instead of flinging underthings.....maybe little plastic grooms and brides WOULD be better! HeeheeHEE!!!!
