Me and a friend today were balloon modelling and she got asked for a castle!

Instead she did the flowers that grew in the castle - which the child accepted!

Thats a good idea actually, if you get a weird request, i've asked them to hang on, do a model & say that it's ******* (whatever they've asked for) in disguise. They seem to accept that as well.....or give you a strange look. :)

I was askerd for 2 bizarre things on the same afternoon.

The first, a little boy, come to me and ask me: "please, can you make a blue duck?" I said yes, then I do the blue body for the duck (the hat of Mark Byrne) and ask him "If the body is blue, which color is the beak?" He looks me as if it was an evidence and say "orange!!". I felt stupid for a moment and say "Yes, I'm stupid, if the body is blue, it's normal that the beak is orange, ha ha ha!!!"

The second, for those who watch the football french championship, a grandma asked me for the symbol of OM (Olympique of Marseille). But I don't watch football, i don't like that, and I said "What is it look like?" She said "a white O with a blue M inside". Then I did my best to make something looks like she wanted.

Pamela Anderson. I had to tell the person asking that I didn't have big enough balloons. Hehe. But it did really happen, and that was my quick wit reply.
I got hired through my agent once for a clown job in central London a few years back, and it was supposed to be a for a birthday party. Something got crossed by the hirer, and it turned out it was for an adult crowd. Anyway, I ended up making some pretty X-rated balloons that night. I won't mention what here, but had to flow with the show, after travel time, cost of travel, and getting all dressed up for the occasion etc. Just had to tell the misses when I got home that it was a nice birthday party. HA!

You know you should have stayed home when you are barely adequate as a twister and your first request is for a hyena and the next table asks for a platypus ! My first thought was to phone call to Bonnie !

Oh I have often strange demand on balloon.
Someone asked me a joystick. (I made that)
One day a child asked me a chicken ! I said : "Don't you want a duck in place, it's more beautiful", and the child said OK !
Another day, I make a spiderman for a child, another said : "Do you want to make me batman". I had not the balloon to do that so I simply said : "Sorry, batman has gone on hollidays !"

I got asked for a rocket yesterday - so out came a 646! I added 160 flames and art work with his name "Harry 1" on the side. He was pleased, & so was I.
