Comical Large Feather Duster

Mr. C. Cow decided, since it was Monday, that Bishop needed a bit of help around the shop. This is surprising as Mr. C. usually likes to begin the day with a banana smoothie, a long bath, and a nap. Not only was I surprised but so was Bishop as he was planning a normal workday. When it comes to working in the shop with Mr. C. Cow the words “normal workday” are never uttered.

The first order of business was to dust the shop. Mr. C. was not asked to dust but he felt it needed it. I’ve never seen anyone attempt to dust equipment with a comically large feather duster. After an hour of vigorous cleaning, we were no better off in the dust department then when we started. Mr. C. gave up on his attempt and wandered around for an hour looking for another area he would be useful at.

Dusting this was not successful.

After a quick sandwich and a few laps around the shop, Mr. C. Cow came back ready to test all of the emergency buttons. Bishop did something I’ve never seen a polar bear in a hard hat do in all of history. There was a slow-mo “noooooooooo” as he body blocked the emergency stop button. I wish I would have had a camera as I feel we could have made an industrial safety video just from that footage. Emergency button testing was a no go.

Do not touch unless it is a REAL emergency!

For the next two hours, Mr. C. Cow sat next to my desk “moo sighing” while I was trying to do paperwork. Bishop, knowing that Mr. C. Cow just wanted to help, gave him the perfect job of sorting hardware into their proper bins.

Separate those things Mr. C. Cow!

Happy to be of use (and tired of “moo-sighing”), Mr. C. got right to work. If you’ve ever needed anyone to organize hardware in your life then you need to hire him. He was made for separating things. (Once saw him separate lettuce from a BLT without removing the bread…different story…different day….).

Important Lesson Of The Day:

Not everyone was made to do everything. I’m too short to dunk a basketball. Bishop was not made to fit into tiny spaces. Mr. C. Cow was not cut out to be left alone around heavy machinery. The good thing is that we were all made to do something great. I’m good at retrieving things from underneath a camper seat. Bishop is great at drinking coffee while working on machinery. Mr. C. Cow is wonderful at organizing. We all have something we are spectacular at. Sometimes it just takes us a while to find out what it is.

Chainsaw Arm Prohibited

In all of our travels we sometimes run into some really funny looking safety signs. Sometimes Mr. C. Cow and I like to guess what we think the signs are actually trying to tell us.

The other day, while visiting a place of industry, we took a bunch of pictures of the safety signs and thought we would try our hand at guessing them (completely wrong I might add).

No Broadway Musical Numbers Allowed!

Clearly someone has been watching too many musicals and was inspired to sing and dance while operating machinery. Something this sign, clearly, states it doesn’t like. Party pooper!

Do Not Limbo Under Forks!

Do Not Use Forklift For Step Exercises!

Staying healthy is important. Doing it on a forklift is not recommended. Limbo action should be done using the proper limbo equipment. If you want to do stair stepping exercises then use stairs.

Your Arm Is Not A Chainsaw!

I know we’ve all seen someone’s groovy chainsaw arm in a movie before BUT this sign clearly states that we are not going to see it here. Just don’t do it!

This one is super easy!

Danger! No Smoking While Dressed As Ziggy Stardust!

He played guitar he DID NOT smoke while in a work zone.

Someone should hire Mr. C. Cow and I to make safety signs. We could keep you safe from things like overcooked grilled cheese sandwiches and falling meatballs.

In all seriousness….listen to safety signs and be safe people. Don’t be stupid!
