Monday quiz show

Okay, who knows what this machine does?

It's not too often that you get a machine such as this parked right in front of your house.

This morning it's in action and the city blew their "fog horns" to warn everyone they would be towed. On cue, one of our upstairs tenants raced downstairs in his boxer shorts throwing his pants on and yelling, "hey!" In fairness to him, parking around here is a nightmare, but they make this handy contraption called an alarm clock to handle situations like this.

I'll post pics tonight of the machine in action to answer the above question.

That, my friend, would be a super sonic sidewalk stealth sprayer stripper de-stainer. I believe this particular model also has a nice gas grill on the back.

Roadway grinder. You're in for some noise as they grind away the top couple of inches of asphalt. Enjoy.

That is the PAINTSTRIPPER 3000!! For the low, low price of ONLY $10,000 a day you can have all your paint stripped from the woodwork of your home using new sonic technology. No messy chemicals needed! You don't even need to be home. The PAINTSTRIPPER 3000 targets the paint molecules adhered to wood in your home and ZAPS them clean away!

Note: You may need to repaint the wood you actually wanted to have paint.

The city is coming to turn your place into a 3-flat because Greg's fairies showed up last night?

Pesky tenant remover?

That's the vehicle from Star Wars that picks up stray droids, the one with the Jawas.

That thing is a beast. Either you are getting a new surface on your street, or KK is right and it is the new Pesky Tenant Remover 3000 and all your problems are solved.

I have no idea what the truck does, but your story reminded me of living in the Mpls Uptown area...where parking was a nightmare. In winter snow we could only park on on side of the street and this switched at midnight....so at 11:58pm everyone raced out of their apartments in their jammies to play musical chairs w/ their cars.
