    Yes. In all origami/craft making things, cutting is a sin. THOU SHALT NOT CUT! Said the tin foil cow. AND THOU SHALL MAKE ME FRESH ORANGE JUICE AND GIVE ME FOOT MASSAGES IN THE MORNING!

    foot masages are evening activities. and mornings shall not arrive before noon. so sayeth the lord, may his word be ever holy

    I want my foot massages in the morning. It makes it less painful to enjoy weasel stomping day.

    shame on you! weasels should be streached and jerked, not stomped. they develop a much more pleasant texture to the palate that way. imagine, getting weasel stumping day wrong...

    Amusing :)

    Where I come from (boston) these are called armatures. Add clay and you got yourself a piece of sculpcha. Nice pics and documentation.

    I really feel like mocking these . .
