In a large refridgerator stand an artist, bundled up against the cold. He olds a knife, with various carving tools by his side. In front of him stands a large lump of Silly Putty, more solid than usual, due to the cold, but still pliable in the warmth of the sculptor's hands.

He begins carving. Is it an emu? Maybe a mosque? Perhaps a penguin? Who nkows what he is carving, it does not matter.

After hours of work, he is finished. He takes snapshots from all angles, creates a mold, for he may want to recreate this sculpture, and then, takes it out into the open, and starts a video camera. People stand gawking at the emu/mosque/penguin, watching it heat up and start drooping. It leans, flattens under its own weight, and slowy melts into a Silly Putty puddle of strange lumps and shapes.

The people cheer, and are handed copies of the videotapes.

       Could you just thwack it to chop of large pieces?

as well as comics pages from newpapers to press against the sculpture before it collapses.

       Oddly enough I read this as Silly Putty Scripture, and I like that better. Just me. A large volume of Silly Putty transfers. Some could be biblical, I suppose.

       Researchers have discovered some additional Dead Sea Scrolls that have never been seen before. However, the media is ink imprinted onto Silly Putty, and regrettably the putty has stretched considerably over the centuries, owing to the extremely warm climate. Scientists at Toys 'R' Us are employing Fisher Price brand Play-Doh tools in an attempt to restore the sacred texts.

       Does Play-Doh do transfers? It would have to be white or the color of the comics, I mean scriptures, would intermingle.

       Oh, I didn't mean play-doh; I meant tools, like plastic knives or extruders, that could be used to resquish the Silly Putty or unstick it from itself.
