Did He Wish He Was An Oscar Mayer Wiener?


There was an odd story out of Danvers Massachusetts last week about a guy you might say threw himself into his work.
A cleaning man had to be rescued after he was sucked into a machine at a sausage making company.  The guy was cleaning the vacuum-type machine that is used to season meat.  Now isn’t that odd?  Shouldn’t the machine work the other way.  How can it season the meat if it sucks.  Wouldn’t it work better if it blew the seasoning onto the meat.  Oh, well.  I don’t pretend to know the inner workings of a sausage-making factory any more than I know the inner contents of a sausage.

Stop showing off!
Local police reported the guy’s head and shoulders got stuck in the machine after it somehow turned itself on while being cleaned.  Man, that’s some vacuum.  It’d give Dyson a run for it’s money.
You know, I’d say the incident gives new meaning to getting “sucked in” – as well as to “seasoned worker”.
Reminds me of the story of the guy who worked at a meat factory and accidentally backed into the meat grinder.  Yeah, he got a little behind in his work!

Your post brings to the surface the old argument of "suck versus blow". I mean, who in the world ever named the blow job? :)

Ick and eek!

I just hope I didn't buy any sausage "on sale" that week.

*shudders*

Malisa: That's just too funny...and you've got a good point!

Quirks: I don't know, did it taste any different?

Oscar Meyer can't hold a candle to this guy! Talking about getting immersed in your job!

Chris: That must have been just the way it was for this guy. Yikes.
nonamedufus said…
Don: Yeah, but some days work can be a real "grind". Ya know?

"Oh, the groan, the groan...".

Punny stuff dufus!

I guess he quit his job because it just sucked.

00dozo: Awwww...I wish I had of thought of that.

Maybe the reporter got it wrong here, and the machine doesn't really suck. But since he heard the worker say "this machine sucks!" he is now serving us with an erroneous mental image about a machine that works the wrong way around...?

"Suck honey, don't blow; it's only an expression." Did I say that out loud?

Ok, that guy's sausage looks like a really icky snake. I hate snakes. And I don't want to know what sausage is made of.
nonamedufus said…
RA: You may have something there. So the machine sucks, not the job?
nonamedufus said…
Kelly: A sentence that starts with "That guy's sausage..." just isn't going to ever end well.
Now, there's a Darwin award in the making....

CL: Yeah but he lived. So much for the award. Maybe next time.

The debate on the positive versus negative impacts of social media networking continues, this time around the Catholic Church has waded in.

Me? In addition to having friends in the real world, I find such social media as Twitter, Facebook and my blog an interesting way to interact with new people across all social strata, age groups and geographic locations. Indeed, I think it's the technological equivalent of Walt Disney's philosophy: It's A Small World, After All. (I stress philosophy and not that annoying theme park song)





Couldn't watch it all, could you? But I digress...


I thought the Catholic Church ran out of feet to stand on a long time ago. But apparently it has as many feet…

Exercising My Rights (And My Lefts)

I confess, I'm not the most energetic of people. After all I'm a guy whose Facebook status reads "I'm not lazy. I'm just energy efficient". In fact, few people know but if you look up couch potato in the dictionary it has my picture.

At my house, we're so lazy even my cat is a couch potato.

But I've decided it's high time to do something about it. I've decided to undertake cross-country skiing. And, speaking of which, after our little session this morning, an undertake-r is something I could have really used. We're quite fortunate where we live. The ski trails are a five-minute walk (more exercise!). But miracle of miracles, I stayed upright the whole time. Putting the skis on was interesting.
"You put your right foot in, you take your right foot out..."
The trail itself was gorgeous, with hardly anyone else out at 9:30 in the morning. Which worked out fine for me. I didn't have to pull over to let faster skiers (read: everyone e…

Here's something unusual for an urban centre. In the heart of Canada's capital is a huge block of open land (400 hectares) called The Central Experimental Farm. It was established in 1886 (thats a long time for an "experiment") as the central research station for the federal Department of Agriculture. When I first entered the public service in the mid 80s (that's the 1990s) I worked at Agriculture in the Sir John Carling Building located on the farm.
