The Making of Beyonce’ Jr

A few weeks ago, I posted a picture on Facebook of a metal chicken I found at the flea market for $15.

Yes, there's a cock in my lap.

If you have no idea why this is significant, go read this article and then come back. I’ll wait.

Anyway, when I posted that photo, Natalie emailed me and simply said,

You win at life. I hate you.

Then and there, I knew that I was going to send Beyonce’ Jr to Natalie to have as her own.

I gathered my materials that afternoon and set to work.

Priming the chicken

Priming the chicken? Is that a euphemism?

It's kind of like giving old metal a nice bath. Except if it's Pantera or something. That's a totally different process.

Then I started creating a MASTERPIECE of poultry awesomeness.

(Mostly) Finished Project

It was amazing. I was very happy with the way it came out.

I packed up myself and Beyonce Jr and made the 6 hour drive to Atlanta to meet up with Diana, who had offered to transport “the package” to Natalie. It was unveiled last night to much fanfare and excitement. According to Diana, the entire neighborhood heard the screams of excitement.

Today, I’m going back to the flea market to see if I can find another one!

    I was keeping my eye on the BMC’s at HEB in hopes that they’d go on sale at the end of the season and I could snag one for half off.

    The reason I love BMC’s is because of Beyonce, and, the reason there are no half off BMCs is probably also because of Beyonce. It’s ironic or something.
