Wicked Commentary

Just for fun, I thought I would put up some pictures of things that “some” men have done in their attempts at great innovation.  I would like to hear from you and see if any of these are familiar to you or hear what kinds of inventions you have tried during your lifetime.

Now I am assuming, although I could be wrong, that these are bachelors without any women around.  Or I suppose these men may have extremely tolerant wives and/or girlfriends. Who am I to assume anything?

After all I do live with the Hawk and he has his ways of doing things that  would never have occurred to me.  For example, his painting room.  I never would have thought to paint oils in a room filled with boxes, several desks, a music cabinet, his computer, an easel,  socks and shirts thrown on the floor, dog hair wadded up into the corners of the room.  I can’t begin to imagine how I would think in that room, much less paint.  Obviously I’m tattling on myself that I don’t clean his room very often.  But it’s too darned hard to get into the place. The sweeper doesn’t even fit in there.  And the Hawk can’t stand the sound of the vacuum sweeper, so it’s all his fault anyway.

It takes all kinds to make the world go round as the saying goes.   These men who thought up these ideas are obviously unusual, advanced, fresh, novel and ground breaking inventors.  I must applaud them for that!

A different kid of Christmas tree decoration theme. Very interesting. But I have been told that God has a sense of humor. I just love the tree topper. Most unusual!

I guess this beats having the drink fall into one's lap or on the floor. At least McDonald's won't get sued over this one falling into someone's lap and burning them to death. That is the really advanced thinking on this man's part.

Love this one. A new way of comfort I suspect. If this guy has a wife I imagine she bought new furniture for the house and left this outside for him to dispose of but he was so unusually brilliant he came up with this cool, new way of using furniture.

A comfy, new way to hunt? Ah, nothing like a beer in the hot tub when hunting for deer. That orange cap might be a tad bit too obvious, but at least the other guys in the neighborhood in their hot tubs won't shoot him thinking he is a deer. Very progressive thinking.

I can't say I've ever seen a plumbing problem handled this way. However it is uncommon and must recieve kudos for that kind of creativity. Poop in a Can. Sounds like the start of a new Animal House Movie coming soon to our neighborhoods. Don't bother with popcorn however, just bring the toilet paper.

What a way to grill! You sure can't buy this one at Walmart, but you do have to steal the grocery cart to use. Truly original mind working on this one.

Ho, Ho, Ho. What a way to go! I've never seen Santa like this before. I wonder if those deer heads are all from his hunting expeditions or did his buddies chip in for this novel way for Santa to deliver the goods? My one and only fear about this one is I hope none of the kiddies are up when this Santa arrives. Could be scary.

This looks dangerous to me, but what do I know? This certainly requires trust by the man outside washing the window. The guy on the inside doesn't look all that concerned, but I must say it's a whole new approach I would never have thought up. What if that guy's pants fall off or his belt comes loose? Never mind I don't want to conjure up any horrific images in anyone's mind.

HUH? Where does this go I wonder? A hole in the lawn chair seat, but the toilet paper goes somewhere else. Now where do things all get put together here when a man sits on his throne. Does the EPA know about this one?

Very interesting and different Christmas decoration on one's house. I guess the mesage here might be something like "piss on Christmas"? Or was this guy just trying to make his wife angry because he's sick and tired of putting all those lights up? I'm sure after this scenario there would be no more decorations coming from this lovely house. Although I have to admit to doing something which I know was naughty. My former neighbor Dottie asked me and another neighbor help her put together two of those reindeer that stand in one's yard and light up. We all thought something was missing though. I quickly grabbed two golden bulbs from my Christmas tree and hung them onto the back of the reindeer's "back private area". My good friend, Dottie, thought surely we would get into trouble, being trapped into Condo laws and rules, but nobody ever mentioned it or reported us. I guess it just looked so normal.

We need our shower head fixed. Maybe the Hawk could try this one. Ah, shucks, we don't have any beer cans in the house. I guess I'll have to walk several miles down the road to one of the Amish houses to borrow one. Oh, whoops, I forgot, they will need to sell it to me. They don't just give away any of their precious objects. Or maybe a trade of some sort?

I kind of like this one. It is inexpensive at least. And it looks like it could do a bang up job on the lawn. I do know Merlin, our shepherd would have a blast with this really uncommon device.

A bit tacky but does provide a nice window. The insulation needs some cover work, but I like the paned window. Quite transformational.

Hmm....never thought to use my iron for this. But since I don't use my iron any longer I might try this. I wonder how many of those little patties I could fit on my iron. Does anyone know?

Wow! Now this is exciting. Group toilet by the fireplace. This should be given a huge award for extremely advanced thinking. Gosh, I'm so speechless over this inventive form of primitive male bonding.

My favorite. Now I know there are NO women living in this house. Just look at those fabulous wipe out tire marks. Best in place for ingenious fun.

          OK. Redneck clothes are like this: Anything that is old, ragged, and dirty. After all we all are all coming to town from the farms where the dust is blowing constantly and everything is dirty. Good dirty of course cause it’s from the land.

          Bib overalls, old worn out jeans, shirts with holes in them, boots, always boots, cause you always are walking in poop on a farm. Poop everywhere. Cow poop, coyote poop, raccoon poop, dog poop, cat poop, bear scat, puma scat, deer scat, rabbit scat, and of course mud everywhere on the paths between the
          crops.
          Burrs off of all the scrub. Pollen off of tons of other wild plants. Grease from farm machinery. Never a dull moment on a farm and never a lazy arse on the place either. Work day and night. Cows kicking ya in the shins and arses. Bulls making runs at ya.
          So by the time you gotta go to town why dress up? Everyone looks the same, worn out and haggard, dirty and raggy clothing. Fits right in with me and the ‘awk. Cause we re filled with dog hair everywhere and poop on our boots. 🙂

    • Hi Dave,

      Well thank you very much for the compliment. I knew, as a fellow redneck, this would be particularly funny to you. I am glad that you did not expire however. I never intend to “kill” anyone with my articles. But, laughter is good for the soul as they say. We must have some of that when we face the complete disasters all around us due to one particular idiot.

      Yes, as an Eastern Kentuckian now, I have seen some very interesting displays in gardens. I’ve actually thought of trying some of them out. Some are nice and pretty. It shows how creative we rednecks can be down here.

      The toilets around the campfire was one of my favorites too. I’ve never seen anything quite like it and it was so inspirational.

      And of course, you are allowed to pick on your fellow rednecks down here being one yourself. I’m afraid it did not take the Hawk and I too long to fit right in. It’s so easy to do. Wear our bib overalls to the store, have one’s truck or car all banged up, hair any which way it will blow, and no make up (my favorite). I would never have allowed myself to be seen like this in Cincinnati. I really don’t think anyone there would recognize me anymore.

Ya never know, maybe a neighbor does that part in exchange for some fresh deer meat. All kinds of good things can come out of these creative and novel ideas by these men!

        With my neighbors I’d put wheels, motor and a generator on the hot tub
        so I could get to the deer before they did. Of course I’d use an electric motor and
        only run the generator when the batteries needed charged. I wouldn’t want to scare

    I liked the Christmas tree decorations. I could imagine what a cat could do to that. Now, back to figuring out a waffle attachment for that iron….

    • PBR,

      A cat would have a huge fun thing to play with for sure. In my former life with my X husband we had 3 cats all the time and he would tie the Christmas tree to the timbers on the ceiling of our family room so the cats would not knock it down. They loved to climb in it.

      Hmm…..a waffle attachment. Let me know what you come up with. Ron loves waffles and he’d love to know what you come up with. LOL!

    However, the window washers place a whole new meaning on the words “idiots” and “trust”.

    • Gray Ghost,

      You sure can come up with those great quotes. Brute force is what I use often if I can’t get something I need done. We’ve been known here to invent things as needed.

      Yep, I agree the window washer and his mate do bring a whole new meaning to those two words. 🙂

      NO it’s never to late to the party. We always have one going on.
      Wow, a grilled cheese on the iron. Thanks for that info.
      Hmm….duck tape coffee holder? What is that? The Hawk likes using duct tape a lot. So do I as a matter of fact. We must be ingenious in our fixes. 🙂

      • Scud (duct) tape might have t’s uses, but I prefer Super Glue!
        We call it scud tape because it was recommened that we use it on our windows back when Saddam was shooting his scuds at us. Somehow the name stuck.

          That is cool how the name “scud duct tape” stuck after Sadam Isinsane launched all of those scud missiles. If I recall correctly those scuds were not landing anywhere near you guys and were scud duds.

          Oh, yeah, I bet you just “LOVE” super glue. I’m glad you didn’t use that when you were here. We may have had a terrible catastrophic event. 🙂

          • Things were messy enough when I was there for me to even consider using any of my ‘fix it’ techniques, and I don’t mean the house! We just call duct tape scud tape. I still wonder if they really thought that tape would stop the scuds from doing damage, much like I still don’t understand why everyone got hysterical that I painted my in home bomb shelter purple before the army signed off on it. They had coniptions. Do they really think that white paint will stop a rocket?
            And Saddam’s dud scuds did land in Israel. Even killed a guy whose daughter I know and greatly dislike.

          Well I’m sure glad you weren’t talking about my old farm house here when you said messy. ha, ha, although it was a mess we must admit. All 3 of us women with 2 dogs crammed into this one tiny room for the AC. Now that was a mess. But we all got along.

          I see perfect logic in your thinking. Why would a white house be better than a purple one to stop a bomb? Logical to me.

          So sorry those scud duds did land in Israel, but sounds like you don’t miss the person who got it.

  19. Your iron skillet looks interesting, but if you really want to cook some hot dogs without the work of cutting them up, take a block of wood and put two long nails in it (in the same direction!) such that they stick through the wood and at a distance such that you can put the two ends of the same hot dog. Get an extension cord, cut off the end you don’t plug into the wall (and make sure it’s not plugged in at the time!), separate the two wires within and attach alligator clips to each wire. Now, put your hot dog on the nails, attach one alligator clip to each nail, and plug the other end into the wall socket. In no time flat, you’ll have yourself a juicy hot hot dog in one piece for your bun!

    😉

    Thank you, thank you, don’t applaud, just throw money!

      Clap, clap, applause galore. Now that is one I most definitely would never have thought up and that sounds more like a man’s device. I’m surprised my husband hasn’t tried that one being an electrician.
