View Full Version : December's Turf Mag. "Talkin bout my gear forum"

12-13-2002, 05:56 PM
I just got my December Turf Magazine today and I was browsing through the "talkin bout my gear section" and I see BushHogBoy's old Scag STHM mower on there. I took the time to read the article and I don't know if someone's tryin to insult him or what but it was a little inapropriate I think. Unless Eric wrote that, that's just not cool fella's. :confused: That's just low and not needed. Here's the article if you don't get TURF:

Name: Joe Blow
Anywhere U.S.A.

"I is Joe Blow, I cut grass for folks. I use an old Scag mower that I got from my neighbor's inurance company ( i don't have none). They said that a mowing guy got it coaught on fire and well I could keep it for free. Well, we(me'n Bubba) got it runnin and use it everyday. it cuts kinda perty, 'specially with them thar original blades, you know the kinds with the wings on them for extra lift? They's kinda rusty n' dinged up, but Bubba says that that just makes 'em better. He probly right. It's tarrs are flat
but it don't leave marks on the yard that a'way. The seat is pretty cumfy too,'specially after i patched 'er up with some duct tape. It's a little rusty but that's allraht. i think it the best mower they is. Everyone oughts ta get 'em somethin' like this here mower i gots. ere is a photygraph of my mower."

Hey I wrote that a while back when Jim was asking for articles, as a kind of joke I put it on lawnsite and made up the story with it... hehe.... the joke's on me! ;) :p :blush: :cool:
AKA "Joe Blow's Mows" :p

PS I didn't expect him to print it and i doubt I'll get the $50 check for it either LOL.. I broke out laughing when I saw they actually printed it..

Oh ok Eric, It's cool. I just didn't want anybody pickin on us young guys, that's all :D Peace

bad call by the editor

I bet that the editor will be getting a few phone calls. Personally I thought it was in really poor taste. Not very professional.

Hey I didn't mean for them to publish it :rolleyes:
Can't you see the humor in it instead of bashing a FREE! magazine???? Jeez you guys are pathetically ungrateful!

I too thought it was strange to print it. I read that just before I logged on tonight, and was going to post a thread about it but you guys beat me to it.

I read it too, but I thought it was from the Lawn Chopique:D Sounds just like him. Amazing!

:dizzy: I was confused at first too but it was really funny. Seemed sooo stupid of a letter that i was thinking, is this to make fun of the Joe Blows out there of the lawn care world.
Nice one BHB :D

I totally agree. It looks like they might be hard up for articles.

Not sure what to think about this. Hopefully no consumers can get their hands on a mag though. :rolleyes:
