now just add some long sharp blades on it and youve got a new kata
|That guy |
"He's amazing!! What a truly incredible display of skill, creativity and showmanship!!! Hey maybe we could have him put on a show at our barbecue next week. What's his appearance fee?"
"I was thinking like 40 bucks"
"He's he World Champion"
"Ok 50 bucks"
It's straight out of The Simpsons, but we had some pro yo yo team at our elementary school, which led to the subsequent ban of yo yos. But I remember their skills being better than this guy's.. not sure how much the assembly cost but I doubt if it was even 40 per performer. :(
Like they'd toss it up off the string and it'd fly up to the top of the auditorium and catch it on the string again, and stand on their heads and yo yo with their feet. Did anybody else have such a meaningless yet awesome assembly, or did Matt Groening and I just have the same childhood?
Ours were mostly about recycling and tolerance, not yo-yos.
had a laser show once.
also a guy with a synth.
We had a guy that dressed up like Benjamin Franklin and recited a dumb down biography of himself(Franklin) in the first person. Also an old guy with an acoustic guitar that sang kid's songs. He called himself something zany, like Pat Socksquiggles, or some such nonsense.
Heh.. we had one about recycling too where they just recruited a few of us, one of which was me, for a special song done to the tune of Y.M.C.A called "C.A.N.S." :(
Oh yeah, well, I can walk the dog.
I can't even get the damned things to go up and down.
I bet those gloves are full of Vaseline.
