Nothing much happened today while we waited for the boring contractor to be available. But when I drove by in the late afternoon, I saw orange streamers to match the orange fencing. Whoopee! Party decorations! For one sinking moment I thought that maybe the gas company was updating the pipes again, because I saw this:
But then I realized that this was no ordinary ditch witch. No, this one has loads of pipe on the side, like a drilling rig. In fact it is a drilling rig, but for some reason they think sideways drilling is boring and so that's what the call it: boring.
When you put all these pipes end to end like tinker toys or soda straws, you can put a lot of that awesome orange pipe in the resulting hole. Just look at all the pipes you can attach your drill bit to.
And then I saw the cockpit on this rig.
I was thinking that I could be a ditch witch if they would let me fly this. Then I look over and spotted the logo on the thing. Have you ever seen a ditch witch logo?
Are you sure you want to?
It's not too late to turn back while you still have your innocence.
Suddenly, I didn't want to be in the cockpit of the ditch witch any more.
Are they for real?
And didn't they steal that image from a set of mud flaps anyway?
And what is it about heavy machinery and shapely female silhouettes?
I don't think Intel has a logo like that, do you?
Apple certainly could have one and play up the whole Adam and Eve thing, but do they?
I think not! I think there is a doctoral thesis in here somewhere, don't you?
