****Here’s an assortment of dikes. ****

LoL. That reminds me of an old movie from the 1930s.

Hans Conreid is hosting a world beauty contest and announces one of the contestants.

“And here we have MISS AMSTERDAM, who shamed Holland when she stuck her finger in the dyke.”

I almost dropped the plate of food I had in my hands.

***Old retired guy that liked to woodwork........ ***

My dad saw something similar back in the 1920s or 30s Colorado.

One kid was chopping up kindling wood on a stump. Another kid ran up, stuck his finger on the block, and said, ...”Betcha can’t hit my finger”.

He did.

***You get your fiddly bits stuck in a Hobart Buffalo commercial food processor, you ain’t getting ‘em back.***

We had a safety manager who would e-mail weekly warnings to be safe to everyone in the plant. He always included a photo of some horrifying industrial accident. One was of a man who got his arm caught in a food grinder.

The plant manager told him to stop with the photos.

No more to be known about the incident???

A White House Staffer May Have His Fingers Amputated Because…?

Is President Obama going around the White House residence smashing staffers’ fingers because his sheets didn’t have proper hospital corners? The only correct answer can be “yes,” because will you just look at what happened today: “A member of the White House household staff suffered an on-the-job injury Tuesday and may have lost some fingers.”

The Washington Post originally reported the story, and was told by D.C. Fire/EMS spokesman Lon Walls that the staffer was facing the “possible amputation of one or two fingers” and “was taken to Washington Hospital Center with injuries that were classified as life-threatening.”

“Possible amputation of one or two fingers” … “injuries classified as life-threatening” … hmm… is something not squaring up? (Of course it’s terrible either way!)

But here’s the latest, the cover-up perhaps, from an Obama administration official: “There was a minor injury with a member of the residence staff – an ambulance was called out of an abundance of caution.”

What the hell?
