seven second delay parade
"I certainly have never seen an animal like that last floater, Chuck".
"You got me, Bob. No telling what that protruding swirly-gig was sticking out of its rear. Well, it's passed now"...
.."In more ways than one".
"Looks like a small car, Chuck".
"Well, that's obvious, Bob".
"There's no need for sarcasm. What do you have in your coffee mug?"
[sound of throat clearing]
"Well..I don't know..could be it represents American Ingenuity, Chuck".
"Why...that's an Olga, Bob. A compact car from another land".
"Oh, really?" [thick molasses sarcasm]
"Yeah. Austria or Russia. Number one importers of paper mache".
"Hell, I don't know".
[silence. children screaming sheer delight in distance. tired brass band trailing off.]
"I think I can just reach it with this pea shooter".
"Go for it".
[sound of a spit, and then another more pronounced dart toss by expert marksman]
"You got the red balloon, Chuck! Good shot"!
"Two more - maybe three - and she's down".
[sounds of furious darts, followed by violent crashing and twisting metal in slow motion]
"That sure wasn't paper mache".
"Yee Haw! American Ingenuity"!
