I painted these flamingo’s at Warners Bay High School recently.
The story of Benny, Teddy and Lenny the Flamingos
Once there was three flamingos called Benny, Teddy and Lenny and they were brothers and their mum was called Donna and they had a pet turtle called Mirtle. The three flamingo brothers were pretty good at hacky sack. Every arvo after school they would play hacky sack in their backyard for hours and they could do all the hacky sack tricks like that one where you stall it between your shoulder blades. They competed in the WBHSL (Warners Bay Hacky Sack League) every Saturday and their team name was The Flamingo Bros and they were quite competitive although they never could beat the Bin Chicken Bandits.
One time they got in the Guinness World Records Book for kicking the hacky sac 51,156 times over 7 hours 1 minute and 38 seconds (look it up it’s a true story). They even got their photos in the local paper, the Newcastle Herald and they were pretty chuffed about that. The article’s still on the fridge.
