    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."

    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..

    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!
