Were you a fan of Aqua Teen Hunger Force on Cartoon Network's Adult Swim? For those of you who weren't fans, ATHF was about three not-so-superhero fast food items: Frylock, a box of French fries; Meatwad, a wad of hamburger meat; and Master Shake, a milkshake. It was awesome and was Adult Swim's longest running show ever (when it ended in 2015, it had clocked in 139 episodes).

The Juggling Gypsy is a Wilmington landmark. Part hookah bar, part cafe, part art gallery, part bar, and part music venue, The Juggling Gypsy has been around since 2004. It also has a large Master Shake on its roof. We had to know how he made it up there, so we spoke with The Juggling Gypsy's owner, Bash.



According to Bash, Master Shake has been around since 2011 but no one seems to know how he came to be:
The Master Shake was painted on an existing commercial stove hood vent that to someone apparently looked like Master Shake. A little paint and a cleverly heated, bent, and painted PVC pipe added the final touch.

The Juggling Gypsy is frequented by pranksters who consider this their safe space and wouldn't do anything to harm this special space. That said, we have wondered for a long time WHO exactly did it. But we expect that we know them. The general denial argument for these types of artists here is, "It wasn't us... but it sounds like something we'd do."
