On of the things that a lot of cartoons did for us is to put the notion that buildings, objects and machines can be alive and have a personality in our brains.
Yesterday I came across a building site with magical creatures doing a very elegant dance. A closer look taught me it were construction workers leveling a freshly put concrete floor with little hovercrafts.
It was quite a site. Especially because the dance quality of the activity was just as strong on a closer look. Big guys with matching mustaches handling their magical floating horses with obvious pleasure and proud skill.
In Dutch this work is called vlinderen, if translated it might be something like: doing a butterfly.
