Only in America will you find a character like Lawnchair Larry wacko.gif

When I used to work at UPS, we would get bull semen in the system all the time... that just sounds so wrong. Also, the container it is shipped in oddly enough has a phallic shape to it. One time one of those containers busted open, and all this smoke started pouring out of it. At the time I had no idea what it was; I just saw a missile-shaped container with smoke pouring out of it. We got the HAZMAT team over to check it out, and they immediately knew what it was.. bull semen.

It is shipped with dry ice in the container, and thats where all the "smoke" was coming from. They then told us a story about when a supervisor was handling one of those containers and it slipped out of her hands. It busted open and spilled all over her. I think she became a vegetarian after that...

laugh.gif laugh.gif laugh.gif oh my...you know, Lawnchair Larry managed to fly - I like that idea tongue.gif when I was a little boy.... I built a ship out of wood and stuffed it's outer bottom part with plastic bottles filled with air so that it would most surely float on the river. It never got to the river anyway biggrin.gif but the sheer idea that I have built something which could've worked thrilled me the most! Probably that's what Larry felt about his contraption and he really made it fly smile.gif
