Today's Wonder of the World is...the Funnel!

But that's no funnel!
Or is it?
The cala lily is one of the most elegant funnels I've seen.
I've been thinking about funnels ever since I found this one, with the help of a smurf.

Whenever I see funnels, I always think of the Tin Man.

Poor Dorothy got caught in a funnel of her own!

Can you be brave and take a look at another frightening funnel?
I'll hold your hand.
Here it comes...
a funnel web!

How about that for a conniving spider! It lives in its nest in the dirt, and waits for its prey to get caught in the funnel!
Enough scary funnels.
How about a majestic one?
I've always thought this guy's head looks like a funnel.

And I'm not the only one!
Look! The folks at Pylones (Sarut, aux les Etats Unis) thought of it too!

I just love love love that company.
If I ever get rich, I'm going to buy up everything they've ever made. And I'll sit on a kitchen stool and watch my chef use all their cool things to make me all sorts of fattening French food!
And when I get tired of that, I'll spend the rest of my time playing on their website, HERE. It's still the best all around product website I've found. (But I'm partial to weird kitchen implements.)
I might even have my chef (who'll be named Fabio or maybe Gustav) use one of their funnels to make me a plate of funnel cake!

And then I'd have to run off all those calories playing funnel ball!

And I'd spend at least a half hour sending pennies down a funnel. But hey, if I'm rich, I might as well use silver dollars!

Have you ever done this? It's mesmerizing.
I love to watch full grown adults get entranced by that thing.
Why don't we listen to some funnel music?

What, you can't hear it?
Watch this video, then. It was taken in Zurich at an Alpine Horn festival.
Maybe they even had funnel cake there!
Did I leave any funnels out? Please share!
Have a wonder-full Wednesday, everyone!
