    Oh, the irony.

    No, It’s not the design. That chair is like almost all the others – it is stable when it is fully extended pushed backwards and to fold easily when pulled forwards.


    John slid forward as he sat down and (deservedly), got his comeuppance.

    I remember electric lawn mowers from back in the late 60s / early 70s: do they still make them or have they become a thing of the past?

    I don’t know if they still make them now, but we had an electric mower when I was a kid. The extension cord my Dad used with it had two or three big electrical tape tumors on it from where he had run over the cord.

    I think Snoopy got chomped by a lawn chair once. Lawn chairs can be vicious! ; )

    Exactly. People here are saying that John “had it coming,” apparently for being a constant buzz-kill for the kids with his nagging, but suppose he had said nothing and one or more of the kids had gotten hurt as a result? John was just doing what any responsible parent would do under the circumstances — although I do agree that he should have put the lawn mower away (unless the kids decided to get it out and plug it in!).

    Yes, they still make them. I just Googled “Electric Lawn Mower”, and there are LOTS of them.

    Of course it is! If you swing that hose around, you’ll poke your eye out and you’ll DIE!

    If you go fooling around with sticks, you’ll poke your eye out and you’ll DIE!

    If you put somebody’s head under water, you’ll poke your eye out and you’ll DIE!

    If you sit in a lawn chair and it collapses on you, you’ll poke your eye out and you’ll DIE!

    Don’t you remember your mom and dad telling you that?
