New York Man Crusades For Fun

NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Having fun isn’t just for kids.

Jake Bronstein is on a mission to get New Yorkers to have a good time with his Fun Idea Machine, a gumball machine that dispenses ideas that people can use to have “child-like, wide-eyed fun.”

He says, “As you grow up you worry about what’s cool or rely on drinking to have fun. There are millions of things you did as a kid that you don’t do now.”

Along with fun ideas like combing your hair like Donald Trump or writing a “B” and an “R” on a one dollar bill so it reads “boner,” each egg dispenses a toy, a lucky penny, and a quarter.

Bronstein explains, “I only wanted to charge people 25 cents but the machine is configured for 50, so I put one quarter back in. With the other quarter I buy the toys from the supermarket across the street because they’re cooler. From a financial standpoint, this is a real loser.”
