...make McDonalds men...
What you need
An abundance of McDonalds straws
Way too much spare time...
Take your first McDonalds straw, and de-wrapperise it. Fold into a square, and squeeze one end into the other to form a, square. Apply tape.
Pinch an area of the square that isn't a corner, and cut a slit into the straw, through which to poke another straw. Leave about an inch sticking into the middle of the square, fold over. Apply tape.
About 2 1/2 inches down the "body", pinch, and make another incision, through which to poke another straw, being the arm. Pull through untileach arm is of equal length. Apply tape.
Somewhere near the bottom of the body, make another incision, and poke another straw through, bending downwards to form legs. Remove any excess that protrudes from between the legs (unless you really don't want to...). Apply tape.
Add weaponry to taste.
And that's it, now that you have one McDonalds man, why stop there? Why not create an army of the little buggers and try to take over small ex-Yugoslavian territories?
