No Mower for You

Headline: Bat, Trimmer, Hammer Used in Lawn Brawl
FRUIT COVE, Fla. - The supervisor went for a bat. The employee whipped out a weed trimmer. Another worker used a hammer to break up the fight.
The safety gloves were off when the supervisor criticised the grass-cutting skills of one of his workers. Exactly how much skill is required to cut grass? It can't be that hard, 10 year old boys do it all of the time!

As far as using equipment as weapons, I get the weed eater concept. Getting hit with one of those would be like getting 100 mph papercuts all over your body - and that would just hurt. Although, it would've been a pain to repeatedly hit it on the ground to make sure the twine was long enough.

Even a leaf blower would've come in handy - send his ass tumbling faster than Boy George. I could even see throwing a bag of fertilizer on the opponent, mix that with the sprinkler system and you'd have some worthy Dixie Wrestling action on your hands.

But what I don't understand is the bat. Why in the hell would lawn care technicians have a bat in their inventory?

Troublesome weeds? Bash 'em in the head - Shaun style. (ow)

It's a good thing the police arrived before the hedge trimmers could be employed or I would imagine they would've all ended up looking something like this...

When Shaun gets the dart in the head...I cannot tell you how hard I was laughing. I nearly passed out when that happened. Oh my God, what a funny movie.

Imagine if they were hairdressers!

I'm going to put my money on the guy with the bat. Range and force. The guy with the trimmer....

Love every second of that movie.

When they actress girl was teaching them how to be zombie-like..."Just look at the face: it's vacant, with a hint of sadness. Like a drunk who's lost a bet"
- - and then they show Barbara's spaced out look. :)

ITJ: But if the trimmer is strong enough it could splinter the bat. :) glad to hear from you again, btw.

Thank goodnes they weren't armed with chainsaws. Now that would have been a whole different story and your picture in the top left hand corner would have a been from a completely different Horror movie.

Ben, absolutely! It would be horrifying enough to have lawn care people show up with chainsaws. you'd see me running out of the backdoor in a hurry!

I actually like to weed and rake leaves. That means I'm insane, right?

Enemy, no that doesn't mean you're insane at all - - that means YOU'RE HIRED!! :)

you're only crazy if you happened to whack the hell out of someone with that rake, otherwise yardwork can be relaxing.

Next thing we need is Bob the Builder to stop by and erect a momument in memory of such utter historical display of intelligence.
