    Today I was finishing up trimming at one of my lawns and next to a telephone pole there was a large bare spot of grass and dirt. A few weeds were sprouting up so i just to the trimmer and cut them down. Well, what looked like a clump of dirt or mud was actually a massive (and fresh) pile of dog feces. As the trimmer head slid across the surface of the "mud," dung was flung across the area splatting against my face and browning-up my white t-shirt. At this point, I had yet to realize the composition of the brown matter. Speculating, I knelt down and took a whiff. My jaw dropped and I had no idea of what to do. After a moment of pondering, I continued trimming as if it didn't happen and didn't even stop home to get a change of clothes.

    Now, after this incident, I do not want to see ANYONE trimming without safety glasses on. :nono:

    One time I was mowing and did not see the doggy bomb in the yard. It was right next to the house. It was wet and runny. It made a nice brown vapor cloud as my mower sprayed it all over the house. A nice gust of wind blew the rest of it all over me. Man......I reeked to high heaven(and hell) so bad, I was afraid to get in my truck.
