The article didn't mention that the husband spent the night on the digger.

He should have promised her a "toy yoda".

Whoa! There was a Farker that posted in yesterday's forums that he just bought his wife a backhoe for Christmas, complete with image.

Is this the same guy?!

Yo HO! That's....erm....really FUNNY. WOW. Laughing. And the article!... Man, that made me really feel the story. Especially the one sentence paragraphs!


Phew!

That was...

Wow. Great journalism. And the prank! Oh, my. Humor.
 
2002-12-27 01:12:42 AM  
I can just imagine that woman's face as she goes on about what a "*grinding teeth into eerie smile* good joke" it was.

Yeah. That guy. What a sweetie.

This article was not funny at all.
 
2002-12-27 01:14:20 AM  
so she can better go for the gold?
 
2002-12-27 01:15:28 AM  
Let me see if I'm understanding this... he bought his wife a 'Christmas present' that was, in fact, something for use in his business?

What an asshole.
 
2002-12-27 01:15:33 AM  
He got her an Australian soldier?
 
2002-12-27 01:15:40 AM  
that woman is a guy's guy
 
2002-12-27 01:18:09 AM  
Sounds like grounds for divorce, if not justfiable homicide.

Ho ho ho...

2002-12-27 01:29:13 AM

You, sir, are drunk.

I failed my journalism class so maybe I can't say much, but this article sucked and shouldn't have even been published in a small town newspaper.
 
2002-12-27 01:52:26 AM  
Skinink, I'm glad someone got the reference.
 
2002-12-27 01:54:57 AM  
Man... that dude doesn't have a sense of humor, he has a sense of ASS.

McWilley, isn't that what I said?

Is a digger is a back hoe or what? 'Digger' could be any of several different construction vehicles.

"She has been after a sports car for a while now and when it turned out to be a JCB I think she was a little disappointed."

No shiat, Sherlock.

For those of you who seem to be confused by this, a JCB is one of these:

[image from jcb.co.uk too old to be available]

The name derives from the founder, Joseph Charles Bamford's initials.

Weeeell ... it probably has more horsepower than a TT ... and way more torque ... maybe you can tilt the shovel to act as a spoiler (at 35 mph) ... and you can lift other vehicles out of the way when you want to park.

I see only advantages.
 
2002-12-27 06:41:22 AM  
Labberdasher Actually, they have surprisingly little in the way of horses (the one above has a rather pathetic 67hp). I guess the power is all in the hydraulics.
 
2002-12-27 06:42:39 AM  
Oh... it said digger. At first I thought she had a black gang bang fantasy like my wife.

I just don't know what to say about that. Ummm, Thanks for sharing.
 
2002-12-27 07:48:04 AM  
RobW - feh. I want a TT after all, then. With a shovel :)

This story reminds me of that episode of the Simpsons where Homer buys marge a bowling ball for her birthday....
