Illustration Friday - Impossibility



And they said it couldn't be done, ladies and gentlemen! But Irvine "Wheel N' Deal" Walsh is currently doing it. Oh, he's doing it, alright! Ladies and gentlemen, remove your shoes and prepare to place a foot (or two) in your mouths. But first, please finish that tasty Jumbodog. Wouldn't want to get chili in your toenails, would you?

Wheel N' Deal Walsh has been told it would be impossible to launch his unicycle over seven busses. W&DW (not the shortest way to say his name, I know) has taken this as a personal challenge, despite the previous world record unicycle jump being zero busses.

"I aint sayin imma god or nuthin but if you set them busses up, they will get theirselves jumped. An I'll jump all them nay-sayers right on afterwards. They just askin ta be jumped. Thats the deal an here's the wheel," Walsh said in an interview moments before burning mono-rubber towards the launch ramp.

And now the moment has come, ladies and gentlemen. Wheel N' Deal is off! He's pedaling furiously; gathering speed. LOOK AT THOSE LEGS GO. I've never SEEN acceleration like this come from one man, one wheel before. Golly! One wheel, two legs, folks. There's got to be power somehow in that equation. Double the leg-power, right?

HE'S IN THE AIR! LIFTOFF! Look at him go! He knows he has it! He is giving the audience a show now! He -- this just in: It seems that Ol' Alfonse the farmer has misplaced his prized alligator, Clovis. If anyone has seen an overly large gater roaming about, please report him to the Security Station immediately...

  3. This is really cool. I love the double challenge here and the way it all seems to add to the impossibility of the stunt.
