Well, no wonder. It doesn't follow the old news dictum, "If it bleeds it leads."

No blood, no story. Move along, nothing to see here.

I killed my Briggs & Stratton once; does that count?

A little OT, but hey ...

One of my favorite stories is the one where my mom's brother was mowing the lawn and was about to run over a snake. My grandpa saw, pointed, yelled "SNAKE!" ...

... and my uncle looked at him, still moving forward, and shouted back, "WHAT?"

*browwwwwwwwthup-thup-thup-thup-thupbrowwwwwwwwwww*

Makes me giggle every time, and I wasn't even born then. Such is the way of lawn mowers. And snakes.

I had the same problem the other day. Turned out the belt to the blades was snapped.

No blood?

What about the grass? I hear it scream, ripped and torn with your terrible compulsion to impose "neatness" on Gaia's beautiful chaos.

I though I was the only person to carry while mowing.

Perhaps it would be more newsworthy, if said woman was also topless! ;)

Hey, that ain't nothin'. Today two guys and a woman went out for lunch, stopped in a health food store and a supermarket, all while openly carrying guns, and...nothing happened. No mayhem, no blood, no sheeplike citizens fleeing into the streets amid horrified shrieks; nothing.

Just like every other time. I really like it here.

WV = sners. Is that a social comment?

"Woman Mows Lawn With Gun" might be a story, like "Squad Helps Dog Bite Victim".

"Woman Mows Lawn with GUn." How many blades per bullet did you get?

On another note, man and wife went out to lunch today while carrying pistol. Nothing happened except for a nice lunch.

joe said...

Yes, but did you hear about the guy who rode on a bike trail and AROUND CAMPUS with a 9MM? No? Well, nothing happened here, either.

Hotshot--
You mean some people DON'T carry while mowing??

In other news, in Tennessee, firearms were brought into close proximity to food and alcohol without resulting in a chain reaction or shootouts over condiments...

Only one? I thought she had lots of them.

I actually have nothing to add that others haven't already said--Ham Radio operator goes to club meeting at fire station armed, pleasant time had by all!--but I felt that the word verification is too god not to share:

I believe that's the sound a flat tire makes, although it could be an elk with a speech impediment.
