Pipe cleaners are the new sexy

everybody loves a good piping

I'm going to preface this by saying that I've never actually cleaned a pipe with pipe cleaners. As a small child Last week, however, I did manage to spell my name with them, with each letter corresponding to one pipe cleaner. Unfortunately, I found the H to be fairly difficult.

With that in mind, it's no surprise that nobody put me in charge of the "Really Cool 3-D Video Game Pipe Cleaner Sculpture" department. Someone over at HumorMe has, thankfully, filled that spot.

Useless personal anecdotes aside, these are really cool. As a huge 16-bit Sonic fan, I'm also glad to find Knuckles (one of the coolest characters ever) and Tails (a pedophile) in there. Conversely, it's too bad that Link looks like a burn victim, y'know, without a face or fingers. The obvious choice for a pipe cleaner structure would have been Mario, but what can you do?

Sure, people have made video game arts and crafts with LEGOs, chalk, and cake, but none of those are quite as cuddly as these little guys.

Hit the gallery for Kirby, Knuckles, Tails, MetaKnight, and Link in their all of their fuzzy, 3-D glory.
