Turn Your Roomba Into a Horny Toad

Papercraft Deer: Shoot It, But Don’t Eat It

One of my favorite movies of all time, behind the The Dark Knight, is Bambi. The ending is just so choice. Why not bring the big screen into your living room with this papercraft deer. It’s easy to print out and construct and when you and your friends get wasted, you can shout names at it and crush it with ...
