Scratch That

Thanks to all of you, we realized the one of our ‘Anything Is Better Than This’ Flickr photo contest winners was not real. It was fake. 😦 So, we have decided to reward the third $50 Anything Card to Buckaroo2008 who submitted this beautiful homemade mechanical bank. Check out the caption, it’s hilarious.

From Buckaroo2008 on Flickr: For Christmas one year, my dear old dad decided to make me a homemade mechanical bank from a pattern he found. He cut the wood and painted it himself. To operate it, you put a coin on the tongue that's sticking out, then pull the lever on the side. The tongue moves back as it swallows the money, then the eyes bug out -- pretty much the same reaction as people looking at it.
