slide

Slide shaped like an owl

I want to build a massive slide in the shape of a huge owl. You would enter the slide by climbing a huge ladder into the ear of the owl. The slide would go through the stomach, past the intestine, and out the anus.

I will call it the.... Owl Bowel

       I think you'll find that a bird's exit is a cloaca, not an anus.   

       I think you'll find that the Owl Bowel vowel is "ewwww".   

       I think you'll find this place amusing.   

       Welcome.

       you'd exit as a pellet!   

       I think you are as daft as a brush but welcome.

       Ed, this needs to be a song. Tune up your 12 string. "Owl Bowel" is the chorus. It would be peppy and upbeat, with lyrics describing the features you mention. The bridge, however would be slow and pensive, occupied with metaphysical ramifications. Following the bridge there could be a solo of hooting, then hooting and farting, before getting back to the chorus.

       I should add that the title of idea should really include words to the effect of "owl" and "bowel".

       Welcome! I love your idea but I'm boning you anyway! because I'm jealous! And drank way too much caffine!

       Other similar examples on Bakery already exist ie ideas where you travel through an anatomical system - but always room for another, so welcome Edi and feed your owl on this croissant +

       // you'd exit as a pellet! //
Through the beak?

       By the way [EdisonsBitch], you aren't allowed to post puns here. Fortunately this is obviously a great idea. [+]   

       If you build it from brick you'll need to use the Owl Bowel Trowel.

       [EdisonsBitch] you may want to obfuscate your email address on your profile page.

       Hi Dr. Hoo!

       [copro] you learn something new every day here!   

       Bill Oddie would be ashamed of me!

       //If you build it from brick you'll need to use the Owl Bowel Trowel//

This would obviously need some sort of weather-proof jacket so an Owl Bowel Trowel Cowl would be in order here I think.

...the idea? Includes the words "massive", "huge" & "slide" so +. On the proviso that anyone using the slide has to dress up as a mouse first.

       Colon (p)Owl?

       //you learn something new every day here//
So, [po], when you saw them on TV teasing apart an owl pellet, you thought they were handling...?..eeeewwwww!
coprocephalous, Oct 09 2008
  

       yep!
po, Oct 09 2008
  

       The only part I don't understand is, //into the ear of the owl//, why not the beak?   

       Well, the beak points down, but good point.
Do owls have Eustachian tubes? Could be a bit of a squeeze.

       Gonna ride me a ride, climb on up that owl,
I'll jump in his ear, slide on down through his bowel.
It'll be such fun, and so educational,
I'll learn about all things owl digestational.

Chorus:
Owl bowel, owl bowel,
Owl bowel, owl bowel,
Owl bowel, owl bowel,
Owl bowel, owl bowel.
  

       First the proventriculus, stomach number one,
Then there's the gizzard where the real work gets done.
Next come the intestines, both large & small,
Through the cloaca and out the vent we fall!
  

       Chorus:
Owl bowel, owl bowel,
Owl bowel, owl bowel,
Owl bowel, owl bowel,
Owl bowel, owl bowel.
  

       Bridge:
This ride though the owl, enjoying his bowel, though seemingly foul, is actually very enlightening.
And it's just as well it, doesn't make me a pellet, then proceed to expel it, a fate much more frightening!
  

       HOOT! HOOT!
Hoot, hoot, fart.
HOOT! HOOT!
Hoot, fart, hoot.
  

       Chorus:
Owl bowel, owl bowel,
Owl bowel, owl bowel,
Owl bowel, owl bowel,
Owl bowel, owl bowel.
  

       Repeat and fade.   

       bungston: Sorry I couldn't get all mystical, metaphorical and metaphysical in the bridge, but for a quick first attempt I like to think it has a certain je ne sais quoi. Thanks for the inspiration. You get co-writing credit, of course.
