Golems are typically quite calm. He is very excited about the treat truck coming. I have noticed this effect with snowcone trucks -- ordinarily quiet people will scramble through the house and then jig impatiently from one foot to the other while waiting for the truck to pull up.

Re: Yes...

They're also quite heavy, being made of clay or earth and generally built quite solidly. One bouncing could probably do a good bit of earth-shaking.

Re: Yes...

That's what makes it funny, to me, this rather ponderous creature excited enough to bounce. It's kind of like Frankenstein's monster, that slow thud-thud when he walks.

Several buckets of clay, shaped into a largish humanoid form ... yeah, that golem probably weighs between two and three hundred pounds.
