Tis' true. Today, September 29 is Inventor's Day. It's celebrated in Argentina and it's on the same day as the birthday of the inventor of the ballpoint pen.
Well move over Laszlo Hoszsef Biro (inventor of the ballpoint pen) because I will now unveil by invention for solving our planet's energy problems.
I give you:
...wait for it
...a little more
"The Dr Zibbs Energy Birds"
OK. It looks just like the drinking bird * that my sister Joan had when she was a kid but my DR ZIBBS ENERGY BIRDS will be fifty feet high and they'll be branded with the prestigious Dr Zibbs name.
Now I don't know how these drinking birds drink - I mean - who really does - but they do work. I've seen them doin' their stuff in person. So why not make them 50 feet high and line our streets with them? Of course you have to hook their up and down movement to something to capture all of their up and down drinking energy. What are they called?.. generators or something? ..You know what I mean...they "capture" energy then they....put it in that...in that thing.. You know. The thing that holds energy until me and you are ready to use the energy.
Yeah. You know what I'm talking about. It's that thing.
So there you go. Does anyone really see a down side? I can't think of one.
Now if you'll excuse me I need to go daydream about being in a parade that will soon me held in my honor as appreciation for my invention.
*practices waving and throwing hard candy to the crowds*
P.S. If anyone would like to leak this story to the press, I'd like my official title to be: "Dr Zibbs -the Eli Whitney of Drinking Bird Technology".
*I think my parents gave us toys like this in an attempt to trick us into Science. It didn't really work.
