Red Bull does an awesome promotional event each year in various cities in the US and Europe. Under the tagline "Red Bull Gives you Wings," competitors try to push the limits in distance, creativity and showmanship by flying (or crashing) ridiculously insane homemade flying machines off a pier and try to see who can fly the farthest. What constitutes a craft is purely up to the imagination of the participating teams, and past Flugtag entries have included a pregnant cow, a diaper-delivering stork, a pimped-out Cadillac, a giant Oompa Loompa, and yes - a lobster named Larry.
I have got to get in one of these someday!
