    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.
