Looks like a padded SLYTP. If that's your idea of an awesome website, well.......

Are nostalging the slinky part or this guy in particular? Cuz I've never heard of him and I've played with slinkies are recently as a few months ago.

And, as we've discussed before, sarcasm works AMAZINGLY well in print.

That act is pretty awesome, too. But not as awesome as the YouTube video on his website.

Sk4n, what the hell are you talking about? No it doesn't.

Anyway, this is a GREAT post.

How about irony?

The Human Slinky act is interesting in a Frogz/DoJump/children's matinee kind of way. I've paid good money to see worse.

btw, the Slinky lyrics are either incorrect (possible) or there is more than one version (likely).

Ok, that's pretty cool.

I'd really like to see that guy do his act in a clear clinky outfit, just to see what the hell he's doing.
