Thank God! Do you know how difficult it is to replace a good lawnmower?

Now that we can mow our lawns with a 3D printer implant all our lives will be safer and easier.

They will have to change the warning signs on all lawn mowers.

Keep hands and feet and heads out from under the mower.

I didn’t get the size or make of the mower, but all of mine have turnoff mechanisms if the operator doesn’t engage the machine. Obviously, this guy’s mower didn’t have one.
