Local Man’s Yard Is Green For First Time Since 1972

As part of the road construction project, a company was hired to spray bright green “hydro-seed” on the edges of the construction work to facilitate future grass growth and to help stabilize the disturbed soil. “Well, at first I thought it was a ‘dad-burn’ miracle” said a local resident of Spokane Street. “The wife is always griping at me about the yard looking brown, so when I went out to get away from her ‘fingernails-on-the-chalkboard-like’ nagging I looked in the front yard and there was actually a beautiful bright green patch there. So, of course, I turned on my heel and marched back in the house to drag the wife out to admire my newfound and quite unexpected lawn care prowess” beamed the man. “I just hope we don’t get a hard rain and it all washes away.”

Oh, I LOVE the sound of fingernails on the chalkboard. Oh, look, there's one now! Finger bent and tight, nails resting gently against the slate, now pull! Pull like a tractor! Feel your ears curdle and quiver! SCREEEEEECH! AHH HAHAHAHAHA!
