"sky guy" - that's what they're called

well, this has been a slow, slow year indeed. not a lot of parties, i guess, but i have about a month left to make cakes for everyone who still has not gotten one yet, so put your orders in. for real. i've got a lot of time on my hands between now and graduation.

alright, alright. so, yes, this is one of those inflatable wind things that they use to advertise car dealerships, mobile phones (yes, mobile), pawn shops, crack houses, etc. the joke around this came about when i attempted to dance like one of these. everyone has a friend who dances like THIS, and if you've never tried to dance like that, then you haven't lived.

after some research, we discovered that these things are called sky guys, sky dancers, air dancers, sky puppets... so on and so forth, and the market for them is pretty outrageous. there are plenty of websites selling these things that look like you made them on your geocities account in sixth grade. it's amazing what you can learn when you're actually motivated to do so.

as a cake it was a pretty easy/weak design, but badger has been lazy this semester i guess. so, let me know if i owe you a cake. i really mean it.

TOTAL DECORATING TIME: 1 hour + 30 minutes watching videos of these things on youtube.
