hey that is a cool thing but it also can hurt and you can lost your eyes when you shout in it... in Austria we call this " Uhagerl" because it have the form of an U and "hagerl" is the slang of "Hacken" which means in English huck

Make sure you bend the ends past the sides or the rubberband will get catch on the ends.

i think a screaming noise would be cooler! lol (seriosly)

COCOKITTY (author)2008-01-27

I followed the steps but when I shot mine I couldn't hear a whizzing noise sometimes I heard a screaming noise instead can you help me?

MunkyMan (author)2007-11-22

cool but it hurts!!!

SpinningCone (author)2007-11-21

i used to make these in high school. we called them "tweetys" tho rarely out of paper clips. the clips were nasty they could really hurt. typically i made mine out of paper. just fold it over and over till its long and narrow then in half to form the "V" the advantage of paper was you could pass notes with it plus you always had paper on hand. additionally they still could sting a lot without being dangerous.

Wow. Very nice. I hit my neighbors eye with it and i nearly stuffed his eye. Once again. Very VERY nice.

emericanskater (author)2007-08-16
