Slash and his Paper Bowl

Back in 2007,
I blogged a step-by-step photo guide to
folding your own paper bowls.

3 years later,
it is interesting to see that the Paper Bowl entry is
the most viewed page on this blog.

And so I wonder...
What did the Paper Bowl readers think about the guide?
Was it as useful as I had intended it to be?
Or should it never have seen the light of a computer screen?

To help me ascertain if
my Paper Bowl guide is a hit or miss,
Slash will attempt to fold a paper bowl all by himself
using only the instructions of my guide.

Take it away, Slash!

Okay, Mommy!
I've read the Paper Bowl entry and I'm ready to start folding.
Assistant Prawn, please hand me a sheet of paper.

The first two steps have been accomplished.

But I've forgotten what to do next.
Assistant Prawn, please go to the computer and read the steps out to me.

Now that I'm back on track, I'm doing pretty good.

I need to carefully open up the box now.

It sounds easy...

But it actually isn't when you do not have opposable thumbs.

Ha! I've got it opened. But this flap is not behaving.

I'm trying to fold it down...

But it keeps wanting to stick out.

I'll just have to improvise. I'll use my teeth to crush the flap down.

C'mon! C'mon! Stay down already!

Aaarrgghh!!! This is so frustrating!!!

Take that, you stoopid paper bowl!!!

If you won't be a bowl, I'll turn you into a ball!!!



There's only one way to get rid of you.




Thanks to Slash and his anger management issues,
that marked the end of my Paper Bowl guide assessment.

Slash, you are hysterical destroying that bowl but what else is there to do with anything paper but shred it. We have never tried to eat paper bowls. Was it tasty?? Good job Slash.

You don't need to fold your own bowl, Slash - that is what humans are for!

It seems the destruction of the paPURR bowl was more fun that the making of it! All good things must come to an end -- and Slash sure made sure of that!

Cute, cute, cute!

Cliff and Olivia said...

This is our first visit to you blog (Huffle told us to stop by). The paper bowl looks like lots of fun ;-)

Nice to meet you.

Mama and I really got a good laugh from this. I like your style. When in doubt (or angry, or frustrated, or just plain hungry), eat it! I have to admit you did pretty well with the bowl at first.

I am trying soooo hard to type to you but my claws are hung in the keyboard from laughing SO hard! You should see Sam. He's on his back on the carpet and kickin' his feet into the air. He says he want's to be Slash's stage manager.
