I was asked to do ... fire. But since I was twisting at the public library I told the kid that the books are inflamable and I couldn't make it because of health and safet regulations... :)

lol...it's funny what some kids will ask for.
I've been asked to make a bowl of mashed potatoes with a spoon, an alligator with antlers, a trampoline (that was hard!), and regular requests for body parts from one of my regulars (kidney, spleen, heart, brain, spine etc.). Pretty weird.

Sorry I saw this post and just had to reply! We get a lot of strange requests for deliveries. The pig farmer giving a pig a shot in the rump comes to mind. Or the life size man in a speedo riding a bicycle and wearing running shoes and a stethoscope (he was a doctor who was also a triathlete).... or the 6 foot turkey with a mohawk, earring, and orange sneakers. That one was for a fundraiser walk/run on Thanksgiving Day. I should post some photos if I can figure out how to resize them. The most unusual line work request? Probably the mosquito! I started at the back of the balloon and left the puffed end for the nose. The boy who asked for it was thrilled, and mom and dad asked for our card after seing me make it!

These are fantastic! I once was at a show and a child asked the man to make him a coffee machine...

This thread has just made my day! I am in total awe of all you guys who can conjure something up on the spot. I'm off out fishing now, but when I get back, I'm getting practicing!

Also, would it be a fun idea to have a 'request thread'? Where forum members can ask for a certain thing to be made?!!

I know I got asked for an odd one the other day, but I cant recall.. maybe a skyscraper or something.. but the oddest one from years ago I CAN remember, would be when a little 6 year old looked at me, and said "I wanna Hyena dancing onna mountain top!"
I'll wager it was something to do with the lion king. It was big back then.
