Another great design for mowing down pedestrians on shared sidewalks.

(The sidewalks is for you North American guys/gals. We call them footpaths down under.)

Garage sale kids bicycle missing front wheel $3

Garage sale push mower missing upper half of handle. $3

The look on your daughters face when she sees the new bike you bought her. Priceless.

Our test driver said that the bike was more stable on the straights now, but complained that it's pushing mower in the turns . . . pushing reel bad, in fact.

After Bubba's tenth DWI citation, the last while going home from the bar on his lawn tractor, the police even took away his rights to a motorized lawn mower.

You should see him do wheelies when he is drunk - it will scare you - especially if you're in front of him.
