    I've noticed at the yellow Hyundai excavator the truck got loose from the lowboy trailer in the event, so maybe the driver only noticed the loss when he saw the "breaking" news on his cell phone, that is if he realized this was about his cargo before sending the interesting news item to his colleagues and boss and posted it on facebook . . :eek:

    That would truly be getting hoisted by your own petard. :)

    Agree on that . . :)

    And, petards or the like are not out of fashion these days, new years eve in Kampen and region, in the Netherlands...

    They use chunks of calcium carbide and add water to form acetylene gas, and ignite through a small hole.

    Official warning signs are placed by the municipality some days ahead of new years eve, for the public and anyone who passes by to take care...

    It all happens in peace and harmony, it only sounds and looks a bit different, melkbus = milk churn.

    ‘‘ ! Pas op ! melkbus schieten ’’ = ‘‘ ! Beware ! milk churn shooting ’’

    Outside the city seems to be less fun, maybe these are only the preparations for industrialization of the process...

    Chutzpah in Chicago: an alderman who plead guilty to wire fraud is in the sentencing phase of the proceedings and his lawyer argued “Since sending the previous aldermen to jail has not done anything to curb Chicago’s tidal wave of aldermanic corruption cases, there is no reason to think that sending Mr. Cochran to jail will,”.

    I must admit that real chutzpah, when it show up, always manages to impress.

    Eating has never stopped the pleading lawyer from getting hungry again, so the judge might as well ask him and his client to stop that habit, because it has proven not to be a definitive solution for nutritional needs. While locking up frauduleus aldermen in jail still has a little chance of definitive rehabilitation, and like the eating, as long as it's in there, it at least helps for a while.
