This post will be dedicated to Tangrams, the wonderful supports of the Gerbil factory here in Encyclophobaticsburg. No, the factory doesn't produce Gerbils, but Mr. Henry L. Gerbil founded it, so we named it after him. It is a factory that produces glass sculptures, And it is basically a large Ovular Building supported in the air by four stilts made of Tangrams. You see, Mr. Henry L. Gerbil was a master at Tangrams, and he built an amazing support system that can hold tremendous weight, while at the same time look artistic. On the side of the artistically painted building is a large pipe that is very dangerous, because glass sculptures randomly fall out of the pipe. A long time ago, Mr. Henry L. Gerbil devised a clever system of piping that led all over Encyclophobaticsburg, and whenever a customer ordered a sculpture, a series of hydraulic valves would open or close to guide the sculpture to the right house. Sadly, during the Encyclophobaticsburg Giraffe Breakout of 1994, the pipelines were smashed due to stampeding. The tangrams, however, were so well built that they survived. But because Mr. Henry L. Gerbil made the factory completely robotic, It continues to crank out statues and they fall out of the broken pipe. the vicinity around the pipe was very dangerous, because of the glass, until we managed to shut off the factory. But because people liked the architecture so much, it has been turned into a museum, with some of the original robotics still on display. This concludes our feature of the Mr. Henry L. Gerbil Museum, next time we will talk about a different building in Enccyclophobaticsburg.
