(2007, Ontario, Canada) Recently a patient was rushed into the hospital, needing a surgeon to reattach the tips of his fingers to his left hand. While taking the patient history, it was found that this bright chap got the idea of holding his lawn mower sideways and applying it to his hedge. He was holding the mower deck trimming the hedge, and things were going well until the weight of the mower got to be a bit much. He readjusted his grip on the mower deck--and that was when the blade bit him.

When the reconstructive plastic surgeon was almost finished with the complex job of sewing the patient back together, another patient came in with the same injury! On questioning him, it was found that he, too, had been using his mower to trim his hedge. Apparently he lived near the first patient. He saw his neighbor trimming his hedge with the mower, and thought it was a bright idea.


Stupid copying stupid....equals..of course. Stupid!

Great story! I thought to qualify for the award, you had to remove yourself from the gene pool.

Chain saw is the best hedge trimmer.

Did you see the recent one of the two dark skinned individuals who tried to steal the copper wire? Only issue they had was that said wire was an underground primary line carrying about 14,000 Volts. The pictures showed them in a very charred condition with one of them having his face literally welded to the metal power pole.
