    If I get one of his little balls in my back yard, then he’ll get a broadside he’ll never forget !
    I’ll show him what he can do with his wee salutin’ cannon !!

    I’ll bet he got the idea from the Mythbusters. He’s really aiming for Swanson’s window but he won’t tell the wife that.

    Mrs. Swanson is feeling a bit peevish after the last time.

    “Try” to avoid Mrs. Swanson’s house this time.
    How many times has he hit it already?


    But there he is with the cannon again…. and she just puts on her noise-cancelling headgear and asks him to try to do better.


    I really love the general acceptance and the low expectations on Ballard St!

    Maybe the Linguist needs to take his cannon over to Mrs. Swanson’s and offer to serve a return volley if need be.

    However, Linguist…
    let’s not reduce this to a discussion of …. you know…
    whose …um…
    cannons and balls are bigger!

    Myrtle is entitled to a lovely stress free evening after spending the afternoon putting such a nice crease in Jim’s slacks. Jim should at least try to avoid the Swanson’s house.

    And here I just thought you were giving us the bird. ( Only kidding ! ) I do like it.

    Having some experience with that kind of device, make sure it is firmly mounted (that will improve your aim). It is not a laptop project. And, as Linquist will tell you, do not stand behind it when you touch it off.

    @X_Tech

    Well, if that’s the case, he really has very little protection in his lap doesn’t he?

    The Linquist rule is NEVER stand behind a cannon or a horse !
