Then if anyone said "Thats not a real monkey, it's just a monkey suit, I can see the zipper", I could say "I bet you fifty dollars it is a real monkey" and when they said "that seems like a reasonable bet, you are on", my monkey would take off the monkey suit and they would have to pay me fifty dollars.

The Paper Boat Carpet › Illusion - Nightly (Build 20120728030524) A few years ago, I featured “Unique Carpets made from Pasta, Bricks and Band-Aids,” which were made by Marcia Nolte, Stijn van der Vleuten and Bob Waardenburg from We Make Carpets.
