I wish we had a movie of you laughing and laughing and watching it over and over and over. Your fav line: "man, we blew those suckers out of there!"

I want to see the pages of disclaimers---when that thing blows up your pickup or barn...accidentally. And notice how everyone is wearing a helmet, mask, cup, chain mail...

My mom would love that. She has an ongoing war with gophers that she loves being the general of.
I had her ask me in all honesty if I thought throwing a wad of lit firecrackers down their burrow would
"kill 'em good or just piss 'em off. Because we don't need 'em pissed, you know."

Bob said...

Yeah, this gift will really blow mom's skirt.

Four years ago, I received a Weed-Eater for Mother's Day! Was I happy? NO!
If my DH sees this; he has found this years gift!
Too Funny!

Gradual Dazzle said...

OMG I *so* want that!! It's going on the list TODAY.

Heh.

Bob said...

Gradual--
Wait for the upgrade -- I hear it'll do tree squirrels.

Missy--
Love can't be explained. (At least that's my excuse for all the truly awful gifts I've bought Joyce.)

Jerry--
Precisely! Why wait until the Fourth of July?

Mrs. Who said...

Tree Squirrels...they have one that will do tree squirrels? I'd take that for Mother's Day. I hate tree squirrels. Dirty, flea-bitten, bird-food-stealing varmints.

Wish I had the camera at the ready when we showed our youngest son, Ben the video---he was watching with his mouth open, just drinking it in! I guess Ben is your son after all.

And Ben said---just wait, someone is gonna try and clear their sewer with that thing!!!

Bob said...

Joycee--
Yeah, Ben knows just what creativity his construction colleagues are capable of. Sooner or later some plumber is bound to decide the Rodenator can be adapted for use by the plumbing industry.

Mrs Who--
As I hear it, the tree-squirrel version will really save on leaf raking in the fall, too.

Is it bad that I got really close to my screen so that when they blew up the tunnels, I looked for rodent bodies? I only saw clods of dirt. I was looking for... gopher bodies. Or parts. :)

Bob said...

Bou--
Personally, I believe it's possible to be on the lookout for gopher fragments and still be a good person. (I may get around to telling that prairie-dog-fishing story ... someday.)

Buck said...

Heh. I'd have one of those, were I still doing the homeowner gig.

I had a serious gopher problem when I lived in Oklahoma but my little terrier kept them in check. The cure, however, was worse than the disease. She dug tornado shelters in my lawn searching the critters out and danged near killed me when I absent-mindedly drove the mower into one and flipped it. Which all goes to prove one shouldn't drink beer (well, a LOT of it, anyhoo) while mowing the lawn. But I digress...

LOL...Farmville.
