Texas Dad Invents a Simple Way to Fill 100 Water Balloons - In Less Than A MINUTE (Video)

Where was this for my son's pool party last weekend?

We must have spent 3 hours making water balloons for the kids, and my fingers were sore afterwards.

Very soon, I'll be able to do it in mere minutes. My fellow Texan and inventor Josh Malone, along with his kids, developed a much faster way to replace the time-consuming process of filling water balloons.

Malone's device, which can fill 100 balloons in a minute, attaches to the hose directly for one-time use. He calls it "Bunch O Balloons" and launched a Kickstarter campaign for the manufacture-ready project. It's called the"Bunch O Balloons," and if you've ever attempted to fill up more than a few water balloons as we did, you know this is game changing. The balloons even tie themselves!

Video at the link explains it. There appears to be a rubber o-ring that holds the balloon on the rigid plastic filler tube. The weight of a filled balloon pulls itself down off the tube, and the o-ring snaps tight.

I know it's just a toy, but I'm thrilled to see any type of innovation when we have such a rotten, oversized government.

Dang it! My idea for a Hillary doll had her leaning to the left and then slouching there, very much like a potato. Yours is an action-figure by comparison.

Or until the envirowhackos complain about all of the latex that could be used to prevent more humans beings from being conceived to ruin the "Mother"/"Spaceship" Earth.

And Al Gore starts complaining about all the water going to waste, without he and his cronies getting a cut.

I’m almost there, but I’m still working on trying to get the doll to say WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE when it lands on it’s head.

I’m working on an entire collection of Hillary dolls I’m going to sell.

One shoots the V Foster doll that comes with it.

Another yells WACO then sets your house on fire.

SHHHH!

Those are accessories being sold separate, can’t give away the whole business plan.

I will tell you the Bill Clinton doll dressed in women’s lingerie is looking to be a big seller.

I recall some water balloon bans — 55 years ago.

The ban didn't stop them. It just made their use more clandestine.

This may take some time.

Have you ever danced in the rain ?

Are you a Vegan ?

When entering a Highway, do you yield or merge ?

The worst was when someone managed to pop you one right on the ear. That calls for some garden-hose-jetstream-setting style revenge.

Kick Starter is a wonderful way to fund your ideas.....

A couple years ago I bought a Bug-A-Salt gun from the inventor on Kick Starter

Your question, “What is wrong with me?” can only be answered through the process of elimination.

Your honest answers are imperative.

Have you ever blamed your fart on someone else ?

When backing up in your car, do you look over your shoulder or use the mirrors ?

Are you a “Stacker” of stuff or is everything neatly sorted ?

Have you ever shot at wild critters from your porch ?

Why do people want to take away the best parts of childhood. The whole point is that it took time to fill the water balloons and some broke while making them. This kept the ammo building to a minimum, but we stilll had fun doing it.

I have never heard of adults making water balloons for kids to use.

There are a lot of things parents are now doing with their kids that are strange and not a little perplexing.

While walking my dog the other night, I ran across a an empty SUV with the engine running in front of a neighbor’s house and a woman with her children toilet papering the front yard. When I commented about her great parenting skills, she and her children took great offense. She also said that it was the home of a friend.

With friends like these ..... anyway, I hope my comment made her think later on, after she got off her high horse.

Yeah, until someone tries to do a hundred balloons in cold weather and the o-rings fail to snap shut, with disastrous results.
