The summer heat is really starting to kick in, making it sometimes difficult to brave the outdoors. Unfortunately, pesky household tasks such as lawn-mowing require a trip to the front yard.
Lawn-mowing not only subjects innocent eyes to the bare chests of old men sweating away on Sunday afternoons, but is also the cause of an astonishing amount of emergency room visits.
Steve Klotz, an avid gardener himself, marvels at the dangers of lawn-mowing:
Lawn mowers are deadlier than automatic weapons. Garden shears kill more Americans than gravity knives and zip guns combined. The crabgrass covered suburbs are more fucking deadly than the streets of the inner city.
