Joe Cashore and his marionette horse

This, right here, is why I get cranky when I see an author write something like, “he flopped like a marionette.” Perhaps, “he flopped like a badly-operated marionette” might be applicable, but Joe Cashore will now demostrate that, yes, a marionette is capable of realistic movement.

I had the pleasure of seeing him perform live and he is a gifted marionette builder and performer.

Thanks to for pointing out the video.
