Inspiration driving past the DeKalb Farmer's Market.

This must be a red letter day, notions usually jump in and out of my head for a lampooning style post, but today this stuck. This deals with a born and raised southerner, not genteel, but very likable and a good man. To set this up, several assumption must be accepted. First that making a fire is a basic shill passed on from generation to generation, not genetic but innately environmental. Second, that a leaf blower and gasoline are not essential tools for a successfully contained fire to cook over.

In my neighborhood, we built this monster grill that doubled as a smoker and commercial grade wood burning grill. It's girth and folly were fired from twelve pack logic.

One fine summer day we left the fire building task to the afore-mentioned gentleman for our typical summer party. He was to start the fire around 11:00 AM, to build a nice bed of coals for optimal smoking of various roast, ribs, and fowl. When the primary cooks arrived to the pavilion where the grill is located, there is no fire to be seen, but a chemically smoldering mess with soot particles scattered everywhere and an over powering smell of gasoline. To top off this absurd scene, a leaf blower and an empty 2.5 gallon gas can.

I'll leave the rest to your imagination, needless to say, the fire duties were never left in this person's hands anymore. My question to you is what is the most absurd-ridiculous use of a power tool that you have either encountered or participated in?>>>itsallfun1957
