Eyebombing 106

“Eyebombing is a perfectly charming and whimsical activity that gives personality to hunks of cold, soulless metal. When you glue googly eyes onto a trash receptacle and transform it into an adorable garbage-munching monster, it makes the world seem somewhat less mechanical. Ditto for gluing eyes on paper towel dispensers (the towel becomes like a long tongue), the end of a winding metal banister (a secret snake!), or any number of objects in our urban environment. So eyebomb with my blessing. Just don’t call it “new.” If you spot an article that refers to it as a “new” activity, please shake your head, adopt your most sarcastic tone, and say, “yeah, right.” Then order some more eyes from the craft store.” Gawker
