Mark Cline Muffler Man

Apparently kids keep climbing on it and damaging it. It is currently in the hospital for repairs. Supposedly this is the second time that this has happened. It may not come back, according to the people who work in the ice cream shop.

The short height of this early Mark Cline creation may make it more tempting to climb, and might help to explain why traditional Muffler Men are as tall as they are.

The "golf ball" is supposed to be a scoop of pistachio ice cream; Mark Cline fashioned it from a giant golf ball mold as a joke.
