s'funny, i thought it was a pic of a public utility at work - until i saw the guy actually digging in the hole.

Buddy Larsen said...

Just out of the picture is a member of the plaintiff's bar, representing the hole.

Rick Ballard said...

That's no real safety manager. The men aren't wearing hardhats and safety glasses. Something could fall out of that hole and injure someone at any moment.

Call OSHA.

Buddy Larsen said...

Well, I'm a mkting consultant for the PR firm that represents the law office that represents the counsel for the law office representing the legal department of the PR firm representing the local public utilities workers union, so any memo addressed to OSHA will be best forwarded first to my office, if anyone expects any cooperation on this issue.

Please address to my office @ One Acme Hard Hats Plaza. Thank you.

Hey, I have worse than all of you, I am the shovel.

Rick Ballard said...

"I am the shovel."

Mr. Larsen requires that you identify your manufacturer, date of manufacture, obvious defects, hidden defects, ovbiously hidden defects, potentially obviously hidden defects, instruction manual (including translations into Spanish, Mandarin, Kyrghiz and Pushtu) and any information in your possession concerning the probable date on which you became obsolete and unfit for use.

PS A list of all persons with which you had contact, no matter how minimal, during your period of utilization would be helpful as would a brief statement concerning the lack of any tailgate safety meeting on the day of the incident plus comments on the obvious fact the necessary safety required to be worn prior to your utilization was typically not furnished by your owner.

Rick, you and buddy are such fascists.

Buddy Larsen said...

Terrye, we're just trying to keep a grip on things. You must understand it is only for your own good.

Hilarious.

If this gang is made up of civil servants, I volunteer to represent the taxpayer.

This looks like where goldbricking meets featherbedding.

Word verification is great:
