I woke up because Skeeter (aka Mr. Barfy) was throwing up. After I cleaned it up I wandered over to the computer where I found this:
It's part of a Flickr slide show called "The Sultan's Elephant in Antwerpen
." I have no idea why they have these giant puppets, but they are really cool, especially when you're half asleep at 6 in the morning.

The Story Behind The Sultan's Elephant
Check it out, John
The puppet looks normal, but why are those people wearing those outfits? The poor puppet's feet are muddy. It's a cool picture what ever is going on.
Maybe this is where Swift got the idea for the lilliputians. These guys are wearing the right outfits for that period. This is really cool. In America, the puppets are just in front of cameras, doing ventriloquist acts where they say things like, tax revenue is up, the economy is turning. The levers are now all digital. I prefer analog.
This is a fun shot. I will miss seeing it when you have posted 25 on top of this entry. Or is it 20. But who is counting.
