Too many rubber bands = broken egg

Snitzel (author)jack84642015-02-14

Yes, I don't said that :( But I thought, that this is obviously. In satisfaction I send a "virtual bone" to your sad dog :)

omikeo (author)2015-02-03

nice thanks, was this your idea ?

Snitzel (author)omikeo2015-02-05

You ask a Schnitzel? You better don't ask a Schnitzel because a Schnitzel sometimes doesn't says the truth. It's a sly Schnitzel... :D
