COW IN THE BOWL!

“Is that kinda like ‘fire in the hole?'”

“Yes, but in New Babbage.”

“Oh. Okay.”

* * *

“What do you want to do?”

*shrug*

“I dunno. What do you want to do?”

 

Kimika’s amazing and powerful cowtapult (experimental):

 

“Can we set it on fire?”

“That is ALWAYS a good question.”

 

And to think… Victor was worried about cows on the roof of the Brunel…

 

The only thing better than a cowtapult?

TWO cowtapults.

 

Many, many thanks to Kimika Ying for entertaining a bunch of us this evening by hurling various dangerous projectiles and thrill-seeking Babbagers over the wall.  Most of us made it.  (So very sorry, Scottie… that looked really painful.  *cringe*)

Victor, I think we might have broken a pane of glass on the roof of your sunroom.

Mr. Nuubert, I really hope those lace curtains are replaceable.

Herr Baron, Kenna really didn’t do any damage to the new Salon build.

I’m pretty sure Jimmy was okay after hitting the tower at Miska U.

Also, just so everyone can relax, that one bomb didn’t go off.

 

Spread the love

      Yes!

      But we decided to avoid the crab creatures and go launch some cows instead.

      *wink*

      Too much pie

        Hey, I hit the wall once too…whatcha sayin’, ‘son?

        • Emerson Lighthouse Emerson Lighthouse December 9, 2011

          Ah… mmm… I’m saying someone must have raised the wall.

      Safe to say they aren’t in the gairden anymore…it’s an advanced butter making experement.

      No cows were harmed in our “how far can we throw things” experiments, just some bruises on those of use who went for rides. The cow was the antique “Dancing Cow” freebie and it’s big googly eyes fit the occasion perfectly.

       

      On a whim I looked up the term “googly” and found that its also a Cricket term: “In cricket, a googly is a type of delivery bowled by a right-arm leg spin bowler.”

      “The googly is a major weapon in the arsenal of a leg spin bowler, and
      can be one of the bowler’s most effective wicket-taking balls. It is
      used infrequently, because its effectiveness comes mostly from its
      surprise value.”

      How wonderful, I love the terminology. I wonder how that major weapon would work with snowballs? Probably only with the element of surprise, as in: “What on earth are you doing?”

      Um..what was the question again?

      “It’s not the vision, it’s not the vision at all. It’s the groping… it’s the groping, the yearning…”

      Wow, I really miss that show

      • Ceejay Writer Ceejay Writer December 9, 2011

        Me too. Cicely and New Babbage have a lot in common. 

    • Cyan Rayna Cyan Rayna December 9, 2011

      Funny thing I was thinking of that episode when I saw the first pics of the Cow Flinger.

      • Ceejay Writer Ceejay Writer December 9, 2011

        It’s an iconic episode, once seen and taken to heart, it cannot be unseen!  

    • Junie Ginsburg Junie Ginsburg December 9, 2011

      *does a little shuffle*

      Oh, you ain’t got a thing, if you ain’t got that fling…

    • Kimika Ying Kimika Ying December 9, 2011

      I remembered that while I was building the contraption.  It *does* stick in your mind!

    You realize what it needs, of course?

    More cowbowl.

          I believe he wuz turned into a horny-toad.

           

          Wait, there’s a thought! Next time you youngsters get together for a fling send a whole tub full of amphibians. Perhaps you can even reenact the Plagues of Egypt?

    *watches the cow fly over the wall*

    The cow is back!

    Back from his magical journey!

    *splat*

    What did he see in the magical dimension?

    He saw eyes, lots of eyes, lots of eyes, lots of eyes.

    Oh yes, lots of eyes, lots of eyes, lots of eyes.

    Oh dear…

    I wonder if that device can fling a unicorn?

    That might be fun!
