    Marshall has just come from MMM&HE with his newly purchased aerial device fabricated by All Seasons Precision Machine and Tool and Tune Out Fabricators. The manual (who the heck reads the manual) specifically specifies for outdoor use only, and though Gretchen points this out, Marshall is so thrilled and anxious to elevate, he ignores the warning. At the end of the day, with Gretchen at his bedside at Ballard Street General, they both agree the living room had always been dark without natural light and the new skylight really is an improvement. With $500 deductible insurance that came with the device, Marshall looks forward to it being restored to operational condition.

    In small print, on page 52 of the manual, it says “May cause skylights if not used properly. Not responsible for any misuse of this product.”

    That’s our old wirlygig design. All Season Precision Machine and Tool and Tune Out Fabricators testing labs found there was a small problem. If you peddled really fast the weight distribution would cause it to flip over backward and damage the carpting.

    I had one of those and with a small front counter weight, the device was great for getting rid of popcorn ceilings. Congrats to the design team there at ASPM&T&TOF. (Jeeze can’t you change the name of your company??!!)

    We are considering a name change but GoComics has removed the Edit function so we can’t make the change retroactive. Marketing is in conference in the Bahamas in an intense brain storming session (going on two weeks now).

    @Essex60

    After their holiday at New Market in the UK marketing has decided on the following change. All Season Precision Machine and Tool and Tune Out Fabricators will now be known as;
    Ballard St. Tool And Racecourse Developers (BSTARD)
    We will be spinning off the Tune Out Fabricator as Insanely Comfy Tune Outs & Fabricators (ICTO Fabo).


    Please remind me of this comment when I sober up.

    It looks like long before Marshall gets that thing in the air, Gretchen’s gonna have a knee-jerk reaction.
