We don’t see why this is a problem
We thought we could use this as one of our Five Favorite Things this week, but this is just too good. It needs its own blog.
Unless you’ve been living in a vacuum then you’re aware that MOST of the country is being buried under an avalanche of snow. Snowmageddon, if you will.
Either the following fellow is having a harder time dealing with it than most, or North Dakota just needs to be excused from this winter for the rest of the year.
Fargo, ND – Local resident Todd Fox has been detained for “reckless endangerment” and “illegal use of high-powered fire-breathing weaponry” for attacking snow with his flamethrower. Fox reportedly became so fed up with the week-long blowing snow epidemic in his area that he decided to KILL IT WITH FIRE.
The neighborhood was treated with quite a show last night as Fox unleashed an inferno upon the mountainous snow palace that was his front yard. Neighbors to his immediate right and left noticed a bright orange cloud and could hear what they thought was “puff the magic dragon spewing mayhem all over hell,” which prompted one of them to notify police.
Fox stated that he was simply “fed up with battling the elements” and that he did not possess the willpower necessary to move “four billion tons of white bull shit.”
Police say that Fox surrendered his efforts immediately upon their arrival and that his front yard “looked like a hydrogen bomb had gone off.” They think he was just happy to be done with snow removal, even if it did mean a trip to jail.
Often, the Sisters welcome the thought of jail and we’re betting this fellow is no different. In jail he gets his three hots and a cot and probably no shoveling. Although, wouldn’t that be the worst sentence for that guy ever? Talk about Sisyphusian justice.
Still, as far as we’re concerned this was a reasonable solution and we applaud his ingenuity.
