That is absurd. It reminds me of the playground equipment at the broke, run-down elementary school I attended as a child. Here you go kids, have a big metal bar to play on. We had tether-ball poles with no tether balls. I was adult before I ever understood what those were meant for. I think I was in second grade when the school got its first playground slide. It took weeks for the line to go down it to die off.

I'm surprised they even have playgrounds anymore.
Someone might get hurt.

I don't know that I ever put this up last year.

First thing I thought was how stupid I always thought those comics were...but I can't imagine a better likeness from a vegetable! Never did eat that one.














This is the Springer girl after I told her that Jughead ate the last burger...again!

I once had my Jeep Wrangler driven off the lift when the guy dropped the old oil filter across both poles of my starting motor. They had left it in gear and the starter drove it right off the lift.

I think at least two people had a bad day, the owner of the truck and operator of the lift. Bet it scared the bejeebies out of him.

My uncle had a used car place where he built the buildings for it himself. The first building had a pit. He asked me to change a tire while a car was parked over the pit. I used the bumper jack he told me to use. I had the car jacked up just enough to remove the tire when the jack broke...WHAM! The wheel I was just about to remove was in the pit.

I walked away, and told my uncle he could change that tire.
