Silly Walk Generator

The British Ministry of Silly Walks has gone virtual. Using modern virtualization techniques, the creative minds at the Flying Circus have revived this time-honored classic from Monty Python's Flying Circus.

Today's version, provided by Transmote, is a fresh and fun way to advertise a new product. It's easy and quite intuitive. Users choose a character and backdrop. The character is paper-doll posable and, in a method similar to that of stop-action filmography, your walk's moves and order are captured by changing the pose and assigning that pose to the next number in the action sequence. When you're done, provided you register, you can Send your silly walk to friends or Save your walk.

If your walk is silly enough, perhaps the Ministry will offer you a grant to further develop it. ("Wink, wink. Nudge, nudge. Know what I mean, know what I mean? Say no more, Say no more.")

[OK. We made up the part about the grant, and there is really no such thing as a Ministry of Silly Walks.]
