Awh look at it's little hands

Artist's impression of a giant hamster at city hall
not the first rodent in there it has to be said.....

If you put a giant hamster wheel in the centre of Belfast you have to expect giant hamsters. It's inevitable. Mark my words they're coming......

More pictures of The Belfast Eye

More Pictures of Hamsters (some big, some small)

It's probably quite sad but this is the greatest thing to happen in Belfast since Spud's introduced the Mousetrap burger in '88. Happy days I can tell you. Belfast is a town of happy go lucky people who will happily pay £6.00 to go round and around in a big wheel for 13 minutes. Hahahahahaha I couldn't even write that with a straight face. Taxi drivers are a good barometer of what the "ordinary man" thinks of the Belfast Eye, "Fucking con if ye ask me. Score a quid to go round in circles? Are you fucking joking? Wha?" He finished off by telling me he was taking his kids next week. Which is what most people will do, slag it off but go all the same.

Not me though, scared of heights. Never gonna happen, and it would be just my luck to be on it when the Giant Fucking Hamsters show up.......

Post Script
I don't want you to get the impression that I am in some way opposed to The Belfast Eye I am not. I'm all for it. I really do like things like this and big needles, and street art and all that stuff that gets taxi drivers all upset. My only worry is the aforementioned Giant Hamsters.

25 People trying to get Manuel's attention:

omg, sugar, i would have to have those 2 bottles of plymouth gin with me to ride that thing! *hugs*
(in fact, just on general principle and to toast yourself...i'm going downstairs and fix one right now!)

Upset Waitress said...

LOOK Mommy! It's the vomit comet. =)

Steve said...

Pretty soon, every city in Europe will have an eyesore to call their own.

Steve said...

Oh, and here's my hangover remedy, in case you don't compulsively check the comments on my blog:

Drink half a gallon of water (or juice) and take 4 aspirin before bed. Keep another half a gallon of water (or juice), a glass, and 4 more aspirin on your nightstand for when you wake up. If this doesn't work, then you drank wayyy too much last night, you lush.

ellie said...

Well if we are talking general principle and all that I think I should join yourself and the beautiful Savannah in a toast to your moon (full) and your eye (big) Cheers, mine is Gordon's

Upset Waitress said...

I always imagine it falling off it's axle and rolling through town. I would rather ride a broomstick than that Wheel thingy.

MJ said...

Is Belfast run by the same eejits who tried to put 30 giant robotic dinosaurs in my city’s beautiful park?

Nick said...

Well, I love it and I'll ride it the moment it opens so yah boo sucks, you bunch of carping meanies. It'll be fantastically popular I'm sure and I hope it becomes a permanent fixture. Though what I really want is a roller coaster.

Mudflapgypsy said...

Nah, what we need is a house of horrors inside the city hall...oh, wait...

Belfast eye, not having an inkling of it's existence I damn near crashed the car last night after driving in to pick up Mrs M and a friend. Bloody UFO balanced on it's side.

Can I have a go mister, huh?

Medbh said...

Love the pics of the zombie hamsters in the link, Manuel.

It's to jarring to see the wheel right next to Queen Vicky. What's the point exactly?

Dave said...

How long is that big wheel thing gonna be there?
As long as there's enough room for the Food Fair. I want a roo burger from it.

Anonymous Boxer said...

No. No. No.

hyperhan said...

I'm just wondering what crazy things you're gonna see from the top of that thing, apart from giant hamsters that is... according to the Sunday Life each trip is 15 mins long and it travels at 3 mph - £6.00 to stare at a lot of metro buses then.. until u get to the top and then u can be blinded by the glare of the bling from the east and west of the city..

bendersbetterbrother said...

I'll be on it. Me and Mini-me. I'll write you a review.

toast said...

shaddup the lot of yis... these wheels are great things - really. The one in manchester, sits between the old cathedral and the eyesore that is the arndale and while not as beautiful as one, much more beautiful than the other - and it looks lovely at night... the views from it are great - belfast has a great skyline and a beautiful mountain backdrop - this will be a great thing.

Don't go up in wind, its pretty scary in the wind

sheepworrier said...

The spides will destroy it.

Im just lookin foward to the xmas fair again. A few bottles of ridiculously strong german beer, an ostrich burger and maybe then a wee ride in the wheel.
I am easily amused.

toast said...

sheepworrier: The one in manchester has bouncers (seriously) to stop pished people going on / wrecking it - i would imagine that the town that has bouncers on the door at mcdonalds will adopt a similar tactic

sheepworrier said...

Toast: The spides wont be pisht, and I dont think they can have a dress-code to stop them getting on.
"No white trainers or baseball-caps tonite son".
The spides'll find a way - they always do. Shower of absolute c*nts.
Oh fuck, how I hate them.

JC Skinner said...

So, I'm waiting days now. When do the hamsters arrive?

Manuel said...

JC Skinner: You're tempting fate, you'll be sorry......

Conan Drumm said...

Ah, a giant rim... I like it, an appropriate sign of the times for Belfast.

I'm just trying to work out what 'Ulster Says No' looks like upside down. I take it it will be sloganised, and kerb-painted?

Manuel said...

Manuel; No but it will probably be nicked...."here mate I gat one of em er big wheels. Your fer £20....."

Dear Manuel,hi this your strange Uncle here,the one who likes Tom Waits,thank you for posting the photo of you huddled in the fireplace,I had already had a sneak preview of it from the 'source'.And I must admit there is a sort of pathetic decorum that appeals to the poet in me.
On the subject of giant hamsters,I personally am in favour of them it's about time the City Fathers installed leisure facilities for our fat furry friends,although the 'wheel'or'eye' or whatever you want to call it has emboldened some of the hitherto (is that spelt right)? large hammies,as I like to call them,into anti-social activities.I have seen them openly drinking at street corners.I had better stop now as I am beginning to ramble and really do not know where I am going with this hamster subject,I will do some brushing up on hamster lore and get back to you.Best wishes,'The Poet'.

Manuel said...

Uncle Poet: If I didn't still have a hangover I would respond properly.but I do so I cant......carry on...
