Yeah. I dyed the pasta, then Elmer's Glued it together in the rough shape of a turtle's back. When the glue was almost dry, but still flexible, I got my model.

There was about a four-second stretch of time where the turtle kept this pasta on his back before it fell off. And he was moving during that time. *rolleyes* (It wasn't glued onto him or anything.)

The turtle received two worms as pay afterwards and then got put back outside.

Here's a link to a turtle and the worm shot... only click if you won't be offended by the... ummm... naturalness of it.

Michelle would like to know where you can find turtle pasta. She may need a wine recommendation as well!
