  1. When someone makes the observation “just how stupid can someone be” there is ALWAYS another moron who says “here, hold by beer and watch”.

  2. Perfectly logical explanation – the Chivo does not want to dirty the trunk of his Escalade by running the wheelbarrow on the parking lot, dont’cha know.

  3. Thales (the Vichy French bastards) went one better, Phil. They bought out Australian Defence Industries many years ago. ADI is a hugely diversified mega corporation, which started out making munitions for the ADF about 9 decades ago, and gunpowder for the sporting market back in the ’60s. If people use Hodgdon brand powder for reloading, it’s possible they are burning an Aussie powder, Trailboss, among others, ring any bells? Australia now has more range shooters (the ones that really burn through powder) than ever before, perversely, thanks to restrictive gun laws requiring people to have a ‘genuine’ reason such as target shooting, to own guns. So after building up a domestic and international market for it’s gunpowder, Thales will no longer supply the sporting market, at least here. You reckon it’s hard to get reloading components in the US?, bloody near impossible to get rifle, pistol or shotgun powder of your choice here in Australia! Less cynical people than I would call it a conspiracy.

  4. You know it’s Really Stupid when you’re too stunned to laugh. Wheelbarrows are usually part of some kind of work. I kinda hope that one will be used by someone smarter than the guy who bought it.

  5. Can’t add to the bove, so as an aside I bought one of those large plastic bins with bicycle wheels. I’ll never own another wheelbarrow. I’ve had 240 lbs of bagged soil in that thing and can move it around on the level with couple fingers on the handle. Long as you have the weight distributed well over the axle.

    • Living in my RV and apartments for so long I have forgotten what the feel and sweat of lawn mowers, wheelbarrows, edgers feel like and quite true-fully don’t ever want to feel them again.

      • Consider retraining your Chihuarat, it is a lot closer to the ground, so may be able to spot where all those dropped sockets, nuts and bolts ended up hiding. Sorta like a drug-sniffer dog, but for fumbling-fingered mechanics.

        • Interesting comment there Johno. Last week I was repairing a riding lawn mower and a bolt dropped on the pavement and bounced into the grass. Followed by a spring. Could not find them for the life of me. Then my 5 month old terrier came sniffing around. Next thing you know I had to fight to get the bolt out of her mouth. Minutes later, it was the spring she was chewing. She is a keeper, anything I drop and can’t find, she will find unerringly and gnaw on it (puppy teething).

  6. Got in my parked car. Noticed a 14-15 yr. old democrat trying to fix bike chain. Struggling with it. Thought “I ought to help that guy”. Noticed pants half off and decided “fuck that guy”. May his stupid flourish and live long.

  7. I’m thinking he bought it for the use of another who is completely beneath him in his idea of the social order., thus he would not want to appear to use or even know how to use it. I encountered this attitude a few times doing apartment maintenance back in the day.

  8. I resemble that stupidity in that I own two handtrucks. One with clean wheels for use indoors and one for the garage and yard. Saves my back and keeps the other half happy. Anyway yeah, the clean one has never touched the ground outdoors, but I sure felt like a Grade A moron lifting it into the shopping cart and rolling it out of the store that way.
