To not give the school a spoon for Uri Geller to bend into a gorilla?

Or maybe I should. It's not that the request for a spoon is unreasonable, it's just the Uri Geller spoon bending gorilla assembly bit is a bit odd.

It's all for a good cause of course. A man with a bicycle powered environmental awareness cinema.

Have you been at the UHU?

How the hell is Uri Geller going to hold a gorilla down long enough for him to bend a spoon into it?

Do you get to watch a film at the bicycle powered cinema? About Gorillas?

How much are they paying Uri to bend your spoons? Surely they'd be better off giving that money to the bicycle powered cinema (so they can buy a generator)?

That sounds like the most amazing assembly ever!

The best thing that ever happened in my school assemblies was the very frightening male PE teacher crying when they played Mike and the Mechanics for a gymnastics display grin

I'd send a massive ladle in for Uri.

He will need more than one spoon, binky.
10,000 in fact

Or, with the link correct....

<reads news letter properly>

Uri Geller is helping to make a spoon gorilla on behalf of GAFI that will be auctioned to raise money for a new PPC to be sent to the community of Uganda.

A PPC is a pedal powered cinema.

All makes sense now.

Oh, he's not actually going to perform this in front of the school? I see why it's a bit pointless now.

Slubberdegullion Fri 07-Mar-14 18:57:57

It just gets madder and madder.

Uri auctioned a Michael Jackson jacket to buy more spoons.

Slubberdegullion Fri 07-Mar-14 18:59:02

All I can see is the Iron Throne, but more gorilla-ish.

ShatnersBassoon Fri 07-Mar-14 18:59:15

The weeping PE teacher was probably better than this, actually.

Slubberdegullion Fri 07-Mar-14 19:00:30

Yes probably.

Now instead of Uri doing bending magic we just have a bucket of spoons.

Uri bending spoons into the Iron Throne would be AWESOME. I would give three spoons for that.

I have a little tear of mirth now reading the link kindly provided by Rusty

"He said he would collect the statue by flying to Oswestry and taking it home in a cage dangling from his helicopter in the style of King Kong."

So many questions

Binkyridesagain Fri 07-Mar-14 19:10:07

If he found out where all the tea spoons that regularly disappear from people homes went to he would have more than enough.

Is the cage going to be made out of spoons?

And will Sean Bean be at the opening?

Slubberdegullion Fri 07-Mar-14 19:14:42

I will donate 17 whole British spoons if Sean Bean dressed as Ned Stark opens the giant spoon gorilla.

Binkyridesagain Fri 07-Mar-14 19:16:04

I bid 20.

Kneedles Fri 07-Mar-14 19:18:03

I read that as stark naked for some reason grin

Slubberdegullion Fri 07-Mar-14 19:18:10

I bid 27 spoons.

gordyslovesheep Fri 07-Mar-14 19:19:50

I'll raise you 20 if Uri will impale himself on the thing
