GRUNFS LITTLE WORKSHOP / MALA GRUNFOVA RADIONICA
Mirko Karas

How to take a half of Euro and 13 cents worth of garbag... assorted materials and construct a cow flinger? Or an orbital reentry vehicle for an egg? Resources? Paperclips and one nut!
Who is Grunf? The brave aviator of Luftwaffe, currently invents half -baked gadgets and vehicles for super-top-secret (and flat broke) crime busters group TNT. This character from Magnus&Bunker comic book Alan Ford, extremely popular in former Yugoslavia, invents stuff with all of the imagination of Leonardo da Vinci, but none of the competence. Grunf is so embedded in the local pop-culture that his name became a monicker for "inventor".
