Ode to the sewing machine #12

Many of you follow my "Ode to the Sewing Machine" posts.  We've all seen the ads on craigslist, ebay and elsewhere.  The clueless sellers give those of us who sew a belly laugh, or two!

No one in their right minds would continue reading, but who says quilters are in their right minds, so here's installment #12...







He hasn't made up his mind on the price.  He could start by removing a zero or two. 

I don't see any wires hanging so maybe it wasn't converted? My xray vision goggles are back at the office, darn, I'll have to pass on this one.














This one is just Ewwwwwww~!

No wonder he didn't turn 
the lights on for this shot!









And the last one for today...

A New Confederacy

(The following quote was translated into English from an article appearing in the Czech Republic as published in the Prager Zeitung of 28 April 2011).

“The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting an inexperienced man like him with the Presidency.  It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama Presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their President.  The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America.  Blaming the Prince of the Fools should not blind anyone to the vast Confederacy of Fools that made him their prince.  The Republic can survive a Barack Obama.  It is less likely to survive the multitude of idiots such as those who made him their President.”

Run right over there with $500!












This can be stored in your garage until planting time in the Spring.  Everyone needs one with 4 doors, I only have a 2 door myself.









A dim bulb holding the camera.  Could you at least open the curtains?

another day

Linda Burnett, 23, a resident of San Diego, was visiting her in-laws and while there went to a nearby supermarket to pick up some groceries.

Later, her husband noticed her sitting in her car in the driveway with the windows rolled up and with her eyes closed, with both hands behind the back of her head. He became concerned and walked over to the car.

He noticed that Linda's eyes were now open and she looked very strange. He asked her if she was okay, and Linda replied that she had been shot in the back of the head and had been holding her brains in for over an hour.

Her husband called the paramedics, who broke into the car because the doors were locked and Linda refused to remove her hands from her head.

When they finally got in, they found that Linda had a wad of bread dough on the back of her head. A Pillsbury biscuit canister had exploded from the heat, making a loud noise that sounded like a gunshot, and the wad of dough hit her in the back of her head. When she reached back to find out what it was, she felt the dough and thought it was her brains. She initially passed out, but quickly recovered.

Linda is a blonde, a Democrat, and an Obama supporter, but that could all be a coincidence. The defective biscuit canister was analyzed and the expiration date was from 2008, so it was determined to be Bush's fault.

The light bulb goes on the Christmas tree, Jack.

The price is right on this one, but he says he doesn't have a pedal to test the motor.  You could test it on a bicycle pedal and get the same results. Fail.

I think they may have used a whole roll of electrical tape on the cord, but hey, the guy he bought it from guaranteed it to work...
