She Wouldn't Fit Into The Box With The Chainsaw

So today I just have to share another John story:

We both were acting like couch potatoes last night, both with our feet up on the furniture, both watching TV, and both balancing our laptops on our bellies.

I looked over from my Bejeweled game and saw John enter something into the Google search engine. He thought for a few minutes, and clicked some more. After which he burst into laughter.

OK. Tell me. Tell me! (I can't stand being left out of a good joke.) So what were you searching for?!

"Um....."

What?

He grinned broadly and said, "Chainsaw."

What's so funny about that?

"Not by itself. But then I added the words ON A .... and Google suggested CHAINSAW ON A STICK. Ha!"

Ha! Yeah, that IS funny.

"Which is actually what I was searching for."

WHAT??

"Jul. You don't want me balancing on a ladder with a chainsaw, do you?"

I.......don't know.....how even to begin to respond....to a question like that......

If you give a man a flamethrower weed burner he will want something with even more self-destructive capabilities.

You can watch ToolGirl's review of Chainsaw-On-A-Stick on YouTube. Oh, and John? ToolGirl DOES NOT come with the chainsaw.

The weed dragon miniature flame-thrower is working quite nicely for weed abatement. I can concur with one of its reviews which states: "The uses are only limited by your imagination".

Moving on to the chainsaw-on-a-stick seems like a nice progression in landscape maintenance technology.

I don't know what is more frightening...the flame blaster thingy or the chainsaw on a stick. (I am SO gonna have nightmarish nights after picturing Hubby with either!)

good thing you can't get a flame thrower on a stick, although I'm sure someone somewhere has rigged up their own to get rid of the pesky bees nests high up in the trees.

SUE!!! Oh, my gosh...I hadn't thought about a FLAME THROWER ON A STICK....don't panic, everyone....

Also, at least he's not trying to use the weed-control flamethrower to deal with things better addressed with a chainsaw on a stick....

YET, Kyrielle. Not YET.
