Eric the half a brush


Rubies on snow


Bit of a nasty nick

Looks like someone slammed their finger in something, although that makes Eric kind of hard to explain. Unless - you weren't trying your hand at the quarter staff, were you?

This is not a psychotic episode. It is a cleansing moment of clarity.
Let's just say by Rogerborg (4.00 / 4) #3 Sun Mar 12, 2006 at 07:03:16 AM EST
that Eric didn't go down without a fight.

Could you fly to Japan and tell me that? by Rogerborg (4.00 / 3) #4 Sun Mar 12, 2006 at 07:04:25 AM EST
That should give me enough time to avoid the incident.

No, the lacerated finger teaches best by georgeha (4.00 / 2) #5 Sun Mar 12, 2006 at 07:11:15 AM EST
besides which, isn't the borglet old enough to shovel, we middle aged men don't want to risk a heart attack.

Urm, I thought the blood came from by ambrosen (2.00 / 0) #11 Sun Mar 12, 2006 at 07:39:33 AM EST
a cutting of a finger.

How do you know by blixco (4.00 / 1) #14 Sun Mar 12, 2006 at 07:43:41 AM EST
the cut finger didn't come from the box or the body?

Would a man try to move snow with a broom, the natural implement of a woman?

Now I'm wondering how she was holding the broom.

I think I got it . . . by slozo (4.00 / 2) #27 Sun Mar 12, 2006 at 08:25:11 PM EST
. . .okay:

Borg sees snow. Borg goes apeshit - it's spring, after all! But Borg has no shovel (and he wears a dress - but that's another story), even though any real man must have a shovel. In a fit of wrestling with the idea of a man taking care of business with a broom, Borg snaps. Borg asks Farmgirl to sweep away the snow with a broom. Farmgirl asks why can't you go do it yourself? A fight ensues outside (picture a), with much trampling of snow but no cleaning. The old BBQ continues to rust. Then, in a fit of rage, the broom is bent over knee by farmgirl, and the metal handle is weakened. Borg says, "Oh, look, now you broke it!" and continues the bending process until the broom is properly severed (picture b). Borg goes outside with half broom to sweep snow, and steps outside, throwing back a last insult to Farmgirl. He then turns his back to sweep, when Farmgirl returns quickly (having heard the insult) to slam the door on Borg. Too slowly, Borg attempts to stop the door, but somehow, puts his finger in as a doorstop instead. Wails of pain and weals of blood flow (pictures c,d,e). Not the lack of aforementioned sweeping of snow after said incident.

But worth a 4 as you're the only contestant who actually played the game.
