Just wondering

If a deaf person drives a forklift backwards in the woods but no one's there to hear it beep, does it still make a sound?

No.

But when he backs into the tree & it falls over onto him? He WILL feel it.

Janna said...

Tug: Interesting. Will his dying screams of agony also go unnoticed?

Tug said...

Sadly...yes. He will be found years later as Tarzan's grandson breaks away from the pack to look for a girlfriend with a little less hair on her body, and teeth not quite so sharp.

Janna said...

Tug: I can totally understand why he wouldn't want a girlfriend with sharp teeth.

Tug said...

Yes, we all do. But when he finds his choices are either that, or an old man that can't drive & is now DEAD?

Oh, the drama. the heartache.

Janna said...

Tug: Well, for all he knew, the old guy had pointy teeth too.

Tug said...

But the old man's granddaughter didn't. Sad that he freaked the hell out seeing a dead man and went back to wolfgirl, instead of just waiting 5 minutes for the fam of the man to show up.

*sigh*

And yet? Wolfman Jack roars again.

Tug: It's like "Days Of Our Lives" meets "Wild Kingdom"!

Tug said...

But Marlena doesn't turn devil, and Stefano got killed by a tree.

The Lion King LIVES!!

;-)

(shoot me now for knowing the Days of our Lives history)

Janna said...

Tug: I never knew Stefano was deaf.

Tug said...

Only for this storyline - soaps can change like that ya' know.

Steven said...

Yes it still makes a sound. Unfortunately the blind person still couldn't get out of the way in time.

Lynda said...

This just makes me giggle.

I hear a sound too!

Mo said...

Only on Earth Day.

Janna said...

Tug: We should have thought of this during the writers' strike!

Steve: I hate it when that happens.

Lynda: Good! :)

Morgen: Maybe I can get this printed on some nice environmentalist calendars.

Mo said...

Make sure those calendars are printed in the blood of oil company executives on glossy paper made from the recycled dreams of those of us who used to be middle class...

Travis said...

I got nothing. I tried to think of something witty and silly, but it's just not happening.

Forgive me?

Janna said...

Morgen: That's really poetic. I like that. Plus, after we kill enough oil company executives, maybe the price of gas will go lower.

Travis: Awww. Here, have some cake. You'll think of something in a moment, I'm sure. I have faith in you.
