The Pump-Action Oreo Gun, as Presented by a Friendly German
Three guess what he's going to do with those oreos. Your first two guesses don't count.
Screen Cap: JoergSprave
A couple of weeks ago, we showed you a series of videos designed to demonstrate novel means of separating Oreos from their cream. Today, we're going to introduce you to a pump-action slingshot gun that splits cookie from cream at high velocities and minimal regard for safety.
We're not exactly convinced at the effectiveness of his methodology here, but who's going to debate the finer points of cookie separation with a man who also manufactures circular saw launchers? If he says that the high-speed footage shows clear cookie/cream separation, we're going to take his word for it.
So who the hell is this guy? Jorg Sprave is the "CEO of a mid-size consumer electronics company located in Kronach/Germany." He's fond of weapons, in general, but appears to have developed a passion for using rubber bands to lob sharp or heavy things at high speeds.
He's also apparently a published author, a weightlifter, a dirt bike rider, and a collector of fountain pens. Because apparently after developing a car-size slingshot cannon, he stepped back and said, "No, my hobbies aren't nearly eclectic enough." He's also our pick for top people to know in the event of the zombie apocalypse. Any man who can build a machete gun is all right by us.
