Over the weekend, the city of Dublin fell victim to a rampage of giant yellow proportions. The city had set up a huge inflatable minion for a local fair.
They did not know, however, that the mighty minion cannot be contained. On Monday afternoon, the 30+ foot tall begoggled yellow giant broke free of its human captivity and unleashed its fury on the local highways.
While this may seem weird or funny or even horrifically adorable, Dublin city councilor Paul McAuliffe does not agree.
I don’t want to sound like a killjoy, but if that had landed on a cyclist, for instance, it could have been serious.He’s so right! Even having established that there were no injuries, this giant yellow mumbly monster is nothing to laugh at. Other definitely not-cute, not-funny, totally serious potential tragedies, not to be taken lightly:
If you take the Minion part of it out, if this was a large inflatable weather balloon that had not been properly tethered, there would be no humour in this story at all.
—Overcrowding of cuddling animals.
—Severe lack of baby animal haberdasheries.
—The mass hysteria of dogs and cats living together.
—Corgis being trained to attack humans.
Stay strong, Ireland. We wish you the best of luck with your Minion war.
