Go ahead and view the wonder. For the greater effect, click on the photo to enlarge. I'll wait.
That's right, it is an OCD marvel of cupdom, a massive collection of epic proportion. Obviously hundreds, maybe thousands of cups are involved with this display. A tear, slowly trickled down the side of my face by the majesty of this insanity.
But...does it score by the cup? No is does not. Here me out.
The fence is presented as a complete whole. I would dare call it art. As the broken tiles of a mosaic toilet makes a complete work:
so do the cups on the cuptastic fence.
Calling from The Higher Power:
Oh wow… my immediate response is to count them. Which is tricky, because they kind of remind me of those fences with boots stuck on the top (which I wouldn’t count), only done by an excessive coffee drinker instead of a cowboy. But they ARE manmade items, and they ARE used creatively, and I DO like coffee. So I would be generous and give it 3 points and a creativity bonus. After all, we count those dumb garden fences made out of tires painted white.
THP is a tough judge but she makes my point, my immediate reaction was to count each cup too. The Higher Power suggests I give a few points for the fence but not to count each cup. On further reflection, I recalled this:
Diane submitted the beach shoe fence which I called as one piece of art and did not count each shoe.
So with a heavy heart because everyone hates the referee:
Fence and cup covered building: 3 points (per THP)
Subtotal: 3 points
For the most amazing collection ever created by a coffee drinker and a true reflection of the insanity of the south: 4 points
Total: 7 points
The manatee raises a cup to a unique and awe inspiring tribute to the love of caffeine.
Let the debate begin... I can take it.
