Burning Man may have jumped the shark.

“It started with a Pink Flamingo 15 years ago. Next it was the hiring of the Blue Collar Comedy Tour to perform - supposedly for irony. But what started as a joke, eventually saw the avant garde hipster Burning Man become the Skoal Burnin’ Man Redneck Arts and Blues Festival/Monster Truck Rally, this year being hosted by a hologram of legend Ted Nugent.”

I say fill it up with Greek soldiers and present it to Troy as a gift.

Uh… ya think?

And its not like the fan base would care if it did. Expect giant shark-jumping theme camps to celebrate the ingloriois excess of it all.

So creative. :confused: Just hope your neighbors don’t install one of these. As of about 8 months ago I have two 30ft is pink flamingos that stare at me menacingly every evening with their evil glow.

I hope it can swim …

Everybody thinks dying for art sounds cool until a 40-foot tall Pink Flamingo goes on a rampage across the Playa.

Mine is quite a bit smaller than that, your reflexive defensive equivalency aside.

If only they left as little trace the other 51 weeks.

I don’t know if that’s anything to go telling everybody.

How so? which thing? everybody? You’ve confused me.
