Just checking the news today and found this Dust Storm hits Sydney Australia The story goes on to state….
After viewing satellite images it appears the dust has originated from a small woodshop North of Caboolture, where a man known only as “Lazy Larry” was attempting to break the current world record of 149 cutting boards produced in a 60 day period. When reached for comment on the national crisis we found “Lazy Larry”
delusional and sitting in what he claimed to be a magical chair of inspiration, (surrounded by several empty bottles of XXXX) Smiling he proclaimed that he “could not be stopped” and that the explosion of dust probably happened when he was completing his latest masterpiece a “End Grain, double curve, woven, drunken, spiral”.
For further comment on the issue we found the current record holder (149) “Hard workin Harry” fingerless and also incoherent.

in and unrelated ( ? ) story :
scientists in the north pole , have discovered an abandoned warehouse thought to be a woodshop ,
raindeer droppings , and purple stains found at the site , are being analyzed .
it is thought that there was once a massive forest here , that was logged out , and the frozen footprints
indicate , the presence of many little ” people ” , and one giant .
it is presumed that this ” shop ” was moved to an undisclosed location .
detectives world wide have been summoned to look for any unusual activity in the wood working community .

a reward has been posted to anyone that can help solve this mystery !

IS there a connection? Hmmmm…. Interesting
Didn’t Larry have a full beard when he first joined. Interesting indeed.

Oh BTW, Good Morning Larry we have had a bit of fun whilst you slept. Or do you even need sleep? Hmmm…

Was that character wearing a red dress??? I think it clashed with that turquoise fridge… the inspiration box!

Hmmmm….I knew mankind was the cause of global warming…now we know who. We will have to send Larry to Copenhaegen to report on how he intends to clean up this mess…..perhaps a giant dust collector…pulled by 7 reindeer? With a guy in a red dress holding the hose?
