Geller Orders Gorilla Made of Spoons

Fake psychic con man Uri Geller is apparently not getting enough attention these days (especially in the United States, where James Randi exposed him as a fraud decades ago) so he’s decided to order a statue of a gorilla made out of the spoons he so famously likes to bend.

Entertainer Uri Geller has commissioned a sculpture of a gorilla made from 5,000 spoons.

The British Ironwork Centre in Oswestry, Shropshire is to make the piece.

Geller plans to put the 12ft (3.6m) primate in his garden in Sonning-on-Thames, Berkshire, where he already has a Cadillac covered in spoons.

“I plan to fly it to my house in a large cage hanging from a helicopter,” Mr Geller said.

The British Ironwork Centre is calling on the public to donate spoons for the project.

“It will make it even more special to have the community involved,” said the centre’s managing director Clive Knowles.

Yes, how very “special” it will be that people can donate their spoons to make a trophy for a guy who became rich and famous by fooling them into thinking that spoon bending was evidence of his supernatural powers.

    Can we make a prison cell for him made out of spoons?

  2. 2

    he transmuted bent spoons into gold.

    What a fool. This is proof he has no spoon powers. He should be gorillizing them himself. With his mind.

    Why the hell is this filthy rich douche asking people to donate spoons? Are the spoons he’s looking for made of titanium?

    Did the British Ironwork Centre offer Geller a discount if they could use his fatigued pre-bent spoons?

    It’s too bad that Geller settled on a gorilla. A more suitable symbol would be a unicorn.

    From what I can gather gorillas are something of a speciality of the British Ironworks Centre, so maybe Geller approached them and said “Make me something to get me back in the news” and they came up with the idea.

    I also encourage you to see how they are advertising this with a picture of Uncle Sam who appears to be wearing lipstick and carrying a large spoon like it’s a club.

    Why is he using a helicopter? For something so fabulous, he should gather up the telekinetics of Great Britain and have them all levitate it to his place.

    I’d even say they could take in in little bits, like, “Levitate it past this field, and then we’ll knock off for the day, because telekinesis is heavy work!”

    I’m sure they’d get it there in no time.

    Hah, sending that fraud all your grannie’s old spoons won’t see them appear on any sculpture. They’ll go to antiques auctions and catering grade flatware will go on instead.

    I have to give him this: he has a sense of humor. He knows how to do a show which is worth watching for people who know he’s a fraud. I would look out for the *overhead flying spoon gorilla* if I were in England.

    Yes, this is “special.” Cue the SNL Church Lady.
