ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
A photograph contributed to the Boing Boing Flickr Pool by BB reader Laser Bread, aka Brock Davis, who lives in Minneapolis, MN.
In high school, my younger brother constructed a replica of Stonehenge consisting of stolen traffic cones in the front yard of the house where a girl he was interested in lived. Her father was not amused at my brother’s “Conehenge” and proceeded to call the sheriff. Some people just don’t appreciate art……
Just look at it . . .
Dude, that’s what January in Minnesota will do to you.
Well done, Laser Bread!
This is what tiny ancient architecture consisted of before the invention of melted marshmallow mortar.
Exceptional example of re-contextualization… brilliant. Lovingly photographed, too.
I like to imagine tiny ant druids moving those all the way across the house during construction…
“Cereologists have determined the source of the material used to construct the microlithic monument as being somewhere in The Kitchen. They cannot, however, explain how the so-called ‘Krispies’ were transported the four hundred inches to their present location at the bottom of the stairs.”
Being overachievers, each ant could probably carry a bit of cereal all by themselves. Krispiehenge would take maybe an afternoon to build.
Compare to humans, where it likely took hundreds of individuals and several years. Humans are such wimps!
“I do not, for one, think that the problem was that the band was down. I think that the problem *may* have been, that there was a Stonehenge monument on the stage that was in danger of being *crushed* by an *ant*. Alright? That tended to understate the hugeness of the object.”

This is without a doubt one of the most amazing things I’ve ever seen.
Why that’s not tacky at all.
I like it. So does Mikee.
This just begs for a little ant druid with a sign that says, “The Milk is near!”
Laser, any chance of you doing Mount Ruskmore next?
I hate to point this out, but the heel Krispie is not aligned with the Vernal Equinox.
great lighting. yum yum. i am salivating.
This made me remember the tiny Stonehenge in Spinal Tap…so funny.
It accurately predicts the coming of the Great Milk Deluge.
I bet that was how they came up with the idea of Stonehenge years ago!
Obvious photoshop – everyone knows ancient Britons didn’t have Rice Krispies!
