Meet one of my neighbors:
This charming fellow (whom we’ve never had the pleasure to meet) lives about two blocks from us. Apparently, after a long hard morning battling more than a few bottles, he decided his lawn needed mowing…but sadly (for his lawnmower, but amusingly for several Google pages’ worth of bloggers already), the mower wouldn’t start. Our neighbor called in the assistance of a Mr. Winchester.
As it happens, most mower manufacturers do not recommend gunfire as an effective remedy for start-up failure.
