What the F...(rereads) ohhhhh.

backhoe.
 
2013-11-14 12:06:01 PM
Well, he took the hoe back.
 
2013-11-14 12:08:37 PM
Of course he used a backhoe. A rototiller wouldn't suffice.

I have a neighbor who drives his backhoe to work everyday.  However, I think he is taken.

Considering it's not unusual to see one of those things driving down the highway, I'm sure no one thought twice about it.  The fact that it was missing for over 2 hours before anyone noticed is a little surprising though.

Pusey did not intend to sell the backhoe for scrap, however, according to the officer.

What a pussy. I would've scrapped it.

$50.

He's about to be retaken. Retooken? Stolen?

Whatthefarkever I just want a man with a backhoe.

And that's the straight story.

Wrath of Heaven: $50.


It digs up 3 different kinds of dirt, rock and gravel!  It resists rain and is the lightest model out there.  It's the backhoe of the 90s.  It easily retails for $125,000

Why would anyone want to go to Philadelphia?
 
2013-11-14 12:24:19 PM
If he's trying to help Philly, he's gonna need a bigger backhoe.

What a Pusey.

A catalytic converter thief?  Can't they have an accident and have it accidentally run over him or something?

To get out of NJ, but it''l cost ya.
 
2013-11-14 12:44:30 PM
Of course he drove it down the Schuylkill.  If it's not an accident or volume slowing it down it's farking stolen construction equipment.
 
2013-11-14 12:45:34 PM
Wouldn't that be 'kidnapped' not 'steal'?

You know 'hoe's' are just property, right?  Just ask any pimp.

Not really.  There are plenty of free bridges into PA.  I take the Trenton Makes every day to avoid the toll on Rt1.  It takes about a minute longer, but it saves me $1 each time.
Now, NYC, on the other hand.  That will cost you anywhere around $50 between tolls and parking.   The train is cheaper, but only convenient if you're not bringing anything with you, like say, your entire rig for a gig in the city...

I can't think of any south of Trenton.

Questions the logic of that choice.

My only comment is, FINALLY, Fark and the media in general are actually right when what they call a backhoe is actually a backhoe.....high five
 
2013-11-14 02:31:08 PM
2005 Case 580 Super M backhoe is valued at $125,000

Um, no. Try about $50K depending on condition.

Back in the 60s, my grandpa bought a tractor two towns over and drove it home along the shoulder of the highway.  It was about 30 miles so I'm really getting a kick out of this thread.

Great, if there's something Philly truely needs, its another hoe back.

To tear down where the Flyers play since it's obviously not being put to good use.
