That is so sad.

Just think of all the inhumane treatment.

All those ducks used in making duck tape.

It drives me quackers when I pull a length off of a roll and hear the
torcherous wailing sounds of all those waylaid waterfoul screaming in my hands.

I say we form a faction and press for the removal
of all duck products from duck tape.

How dare they???


Just think of those poor mistreated cuddly ducks.


I wonder what they do with the feathers?


~~~bzzzzz!?!


What the hell was that I just drank...that didn`t taste like PBR.
I uh....

uhm

Boy, you should see the pile of leaves up against the trash fence! I think it followed me here from Michigan....we're sternum-deep in 'em there! Maybe we'll have Burning Leaf Man today....I'll start working on a chickenwire and rebar frame.

Yep. Fall fell in a big way here too.

I`m up on the roof with a leaf blower tomorrow.
Then comes the yard.
Serious poundage.

Accelerant and matches sounds mighty nice.

yeah....a chicken wire form filled with leaves and soaked in lighter fluid
with a few black powder filled tennis balls placed in the center for entertainment purposes!!!

unfortunately in my neighborhood I would get so busted.

I DO want it. My grandiose plans for next year will require me to have my own Work Ranch.....
I'm thinkin' maybe just throw a 3V or 4V dome of 2" welded rebar around that house. Then start work on the Man-O-Rail terminal.

*KampKalamazoo can barely lift the can to his lips before an alarming crack appears in his forehead...Accompanied by a ghastly tearing sound the skin splits asunder and the glint of newly-polished aluminum shines from beneath the green-painted skin*

Whoa.

Whoa.
Good show robotland!
I was a little worried there for a sec.
I think we should build a huge robot in honor of your speedy recovery.
Something in a platinum finish might be nice.

oooooh , just had a thought...It was really cool this year to be able to spin the Man.... wouldn`t it be great if the Man paced back and forth
using kinetic energy provided by participants hoisting a large
weight or turning a crank or loading weights or treadmill...etc?
Mobile Man......


a little bacon sounds good about now.
Think I`ll throw another log on the fire.

A big Roving Robot Man would be GREAT. Something HUGE...mebbe a thirty-footer, probably with a tubular framework that would allow wind through. Wait...A TRANSFORMER! We get six people to contribute vehicles that would then connect, forming the arms, legs, torso and head....

Well, that explains why there are parts of Michigan where it seems like it's about 1950....They try to convince schoolkids that the glaciers made those wrinkles.
