Segway? I Laugh.

I just read in the news a day or 2 ago 'bout how that fella that invented the Segway is starting to get concerned that it's just not gonna catch on as the new mode of transportation for the 2000's.

I looked around on the world wide web a little bit and hell... there's folks all over the place unhappy as a wormy turtle. I would be too if I'd paid 6 or 7 thousand for one of those things and I just ended up pushing it home.

I'm gonna let y'all in on a little secret. I was in Orscheln's Farm and Home a while back and they had 'em for sale in there. $39.95. Yup.

I got all bundled up and Sal got a shot of me speeding down the driveway today. 'Bout froze my segway juniors plumb off. The pics a little blurry... man it's fast.












Remember... Orschelns. $39.95 Runs like the wind.

That one deserves a little Roscoe P. Coltrane "keeyack, keeyack, keeyack!" complete with arm-aloft-fist-pump.

On my dashboard page I saw the word Segway and the teeny pic of you on that dolly, and I cackled with glee...then I opened the post for the full commentary and was not disappointed!

Sassy Britches: I work hard at non-disappointment! ROSCOE!

Sarah J: Run fast, if they put 'em on special they're gonna run out of 'em.

Gracie: SOMEONE HAS THEIR EYE ON MY HELMET????

Sass: I can now die with a completed life. Nostril coffee from the Sassinator.

Cathi: The ones in your barn are probably older models that need to run on leaded gas. Go get a new one!

Jennifer: Push me home? Hell I got it stuck a couple weeks ago and Sal had to bring the 4x4 and a log chain.

Anonymous: Is "in my office" a metaphor for something risque? It's okay if is. *wink wink*

gracie said...

Besides...we bought a great present for *YOU* last week that will go perfect w/yer new *helmet.*

Crumbs, I had never heard of those things, and seriously, those things should be banned, maybe Obama can kick them out with a post-inaug bill of some kind.

Scope said...

Careful with that Segway.
