Mr. J.: Loose Construction Material a Menace

Tree limbs
aren’t the only victims of recent high winds. Karl follows the fate of some plywood from the sidewalk bridge surrounding 20 Henry Street, and gives a warning.

    Karl, I am a little bit disappointed in your reporting. Why did you fail to include in your story that there was a stack of buckwheat pancakes that were not also adequately secured?

    What readers of the BHB probably don’t realize, is that it is well-established that a buckwheat pancake can be a very lethal projectile. During World War I, the US government purchased millions of buckwheat pancakes as part of the standard complement of weapons issued to every American soldier. Unfortunately a significant stash of buckwheat pancakes were being stored by the on-site security company in the event of a violent mob arriving from Jack The Horse.

    At a cost of only six dollars (later revised to four dollars) a piece, the buckwheat pancake is/was considered one of America’s most efficient weapons of mass destruction. These facts can all be confirmed at the North American Edible Munitions Council website, if folks think I’m not telling the absolute truth.

    LOL great one TK, Any pancake cooked by the US government would be a lethal weapon, indeed.

    T.K., what an imagination. I wish I could visit one of your dream sequences. I’m sure they are a thrill a minute. Buckwheat projectiles. I like it.

    After the great pancake debate of 2011, I couldn’t resist.

    TK – Suggest that you arrange for your initial comment to be added to the crazy thread about JTH. Love it!

    Nice one, T.K.! I didn’t realize the great pancake debate had resonated so strongly! :)

    JUST IN: The construction workers in question were seen eating buckwheat pancakes on the job and they (the pancakes) are being blamed for loose materials and dangerous working conditions. Master of Middagh is said to be forming a posse to demonstrate at JtH as we speak. More at 11.

    Union or Non-union pancake eaters. What is the question.
