Today's wonder is at a location I cannot disclose [edit]couldn't previously disclose - Minnesota Department of Human Services.[/Edit]


See there was this elevator. And it needed "fixin'". And I guess to fix it the outer door had to be held open. So take a gander at these next 3 and as I zoom in, please notice the "tool" being used.
What's that holding the door open...
No it can't be...
Remember to only use Sharpie (tm) brand elevator door wedges and markers

First, just to clarify, I'm actually mostly pro-gun ownership. But I'm also capable of seeing some issues with the gun crowd. I know that personally nothing makes a me feel better about an emotionally charged issue that I'm concerned about or perhaps on the fence about than a personalized license plate that calls up images reminiscent of Hollywood B movies from the 70's. FIRE GOOD, GUNS OK, SABERTOOTH CAT BAAADDDDD!!!!! If anyone is listening, smug bumper stickers from any political perspective work almost as well...FIRE GOOD, GUNS OK, SABERTOOTH CAT BAAADDDDD!!!

... but really maybe we should take a shot at geometry and basic math...Something along the lines of if opening = 10' tall and car plus wrecker = 12' tall, how many feet must be ripped off the roof to get the car out.

Ok, I need to apologize for the image quality here. It was dusk, with a lot of artificial lights in the area, so the little pda camera was already well out of it's league. I caught this little action in the order presented. By the time I took the first picture the car was already loaded and they were starting to drive out of the opening. So the picture you see is just (seconds) after they stopped just in time to avoid creating an all new Ford Taurus convertible.

Which I might add is what they did do, lift bed complaining all the way. I'd like to know if the boss found out, but even I cannot read the name on the truck and I have the native files....
