What Not to Ask the Guy Who Test Drove His “Hungry Hungry Hippo” Soapbox Derby Racer Past Your House

1. "Dude, where’s the engine?" (It runs on gravity.)
2. "What's that giant LEGO piece with eyes?" (That’s the hippo head. It opens!)

3. "Where’s the rest of the body?" (In construction for the official competition next week.)

4. "Ooh, can I drive it?" (No.)

5. "Can I sit in the back?" (Yes, if that’s what it takes to shut you up.)

6. "Wow, this is great! Can I be part of the team that rides on it in the official competition next week?"
(You're still talking? Get out! *shove*)
