Hey,.... Me too!

You know,... if you were a 'ninja forklift driver'... you'd wouldn't have to worry about those details.... because I understand they go 'commando'.

You'll notice that there's no one in the picture. The photographer has the detonator in his pocket!

I had the same pun in mine for the caption I was planning.

However, your speed in posting blew me out of the water.

So I will defuse the situation by giving you a GA.

Fired! Fired!? I knew it! No good deed goes unpunished around here! I catch a bomb that fell right out of the sky, preventing an explosion, no less!... and you want me out of here for tipping over!

Safety Rules are made for a reason,... if we let this slide, we'd have total chaos,...

Human sacrifice! Dogs and cats living together! Mass hysteria!

And you know, we have a Zero tolerance on this policy. For this infraction, we're going to have to let you go,... immediately.

"You know that new stealth technology the military has been rolling out for their land vehicles? Guess what, private? It has NOT been deployed on the DOT trailers used to ferry supplies. So now that we both know there is no such thing as a 'stealth trailer,' would you like to give your report on the accident again?"

I've told Bill a hundred times that if he doesn't synchronize his watch with the truck driver's, the "just in time inventory" system falls apart!
