Backhoe For Sale

You know, there have been a number of occasions I have found myself musing “You know, I could really use a backhoe— and not just any backhoe either: it must have an extendable dipper.” So you can imagine my delight when I walked by Nina’s Pizzeria on Meeker Avenue today and found this.

For Sale

Wow. $19,000 is such a small price to pay for a 580K case backhoe! I wonder what these purported “other options” are? Perhaps the seat is made is covered in genuine Corinthian leather? Methinks I will have to give this guy a ring and take this bad boy out for a test drive.

  6. Nothing helps depression quite like shopping for, and getting a new toy. Do it for Hannah.

  10. Give it teeth, just like that fierce truck you posted about. For inspiration, check out “Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel”. The bad-guy steam shovels all have teeth and evil eyes.
