    Injuries

    I saw on T.V. a commentator said that there are an average of 5000 injuries a MONTH that go to the hospital from lawnmowers.


    Perhaps we can get the Brady bunch to try and outlaw lawnmowers.

    Think of it - if we don't have to mow the lawn we can go shooting more.

    One ought never to turn one's back on a threatened danger and try to run away from it. If you do that, you will double the danger. But if you meet it promptly and without flinching, you will reduce the danger by half.

    Apparently, Sir Winston never tangled with a lawnmower!

    That's why I practice situational avoidance. If I can avoid a situation involving a lawnmower, it can't hurt me!

    If I could afford it anyways - I'd sell my (pre-ban) mower and sprinkle whiskey all over my grass - makes it come up half cut LOL!

    I'd give up my riding mower for a 308.

    Man, this ain't funny, but the wife said that last night in the ER there was a dad that brought his five year old girl because of a lawn mower accident.

    His daughter liked to ride on the lawnmower with him when he mowed the lawn and was running out to hop on when she slipped on the dewed grass. She slid feet first under the mower and lost both feet. There was no saving them.

    But I wouldn't have figured there were 5000 accidents a year.

    Can we be arrested for ''mowing down'' those innocent blades of grass!

    Probably even worse if the transmission is ''full auto'' - you'd need a tax stamp!

    One of the few perks to apartment living, no freakin' lawn to mow! For those of you who do, don't forget that tall grass attracts bunnies and all sorts of tastey birds. Seems like a win/win situation to me: No more mowing, fried bunny for dinner and nobody could see your socks n' sandals .
