Slingshots

So whose dumbass idea was this?

(Three brothers and a cousin.)

Actually, I can't take credit for this one. The inspiration, imagination, and design were all from this guy:

Thanks a lot, Jack.

I'm torn between chastising him for creating a weapon and praising him for his creativity.

  1. Oh how amazing my Jack is. He deserves lots of praise as you shoo the boys out side to play...

  3. Praise from me. I love it.

    But then again - it's not in my house...

  4. In my house we have a "no gun" rule so what does my son do? Builds a gun with Legos. There's just something about boys that makes them natural lunatics about weapons. At least Jack was pretty creative in his lunaticness AND he made enough for everyone. I say he should get praise.

  7. Give them them marshmallows! They make wonderfully silly ammunition and a fantastically satisfying thud when they hit something!

    Thanks, Stimey. And I thought I was going to have a peaceful day...

  10. OMG!!!! What little smarty-pantses!!! And, also, BOYS. Sheesh!

    I think the marshmallow idea is a good one, too! or, balled up socks.

    Or, do you have any pirate eye patches? Then you could be sure that they'd each have *at least* one good eye left, right? Hedge your bets, woman!
