Trimming weeding, edging, with a flame thrower?! Why didn’t I think of that?!

What could possibly go wrong?

Reminds me of this:

  1. just don’t get what’s funny about mocking people with special needs. Do you? Can you let me in on the joke? I have a child with special needs. She isn’t like the person you post in that poster. What gives you the right to have a laugh because someone isn’t as perfect as you.

      Mike, sorry you don’t get the humor. It’s not meant to be offensive to mentally handicapped people, as I highly doubt that soldier is mentally handicapped. One of the dictionary definitions of “retard” is “a person who is stupid, obtuse, or ineffective in some way” which would be a perfect way to define that soldier, who appears to be pointing his flame thrower at another soldier only a few feet away.

  2. Where caN I buy this poster
