The Captain Loves Crazy Contraptions

It’s no secret that I’m a fan of Pee Wee Herman.  One of my favorite of his bits is the breakfast machine from Pee Wee’s Big Adventure.

To me this was the ultimate Rube Goldberg contraption.  That was until I saw this today.

Internet darlings OkGo apparently are trying to break my allegiance to Mr. Herman1.  You were close, but no cigar.

While you contraption may be flashier, in the end all it was able to accomplish was coating the band in paint.  Pee Wee’s device produced smiley faced pancakes.  Smiley.  Faced.  Pancakes.  Nice try fellas, but it’s Pee Wee FTW!

Ciao,

The Captain

1. While they may not be able to break my allegiance, I think they have a good shot at breaking the internet today.
