Toyota Lawn Mower ... and Winner of the Coupon Contest

Posted by C.L. (Cindy) Beck

If you're a giant corporation like Toyota, you have to learn to take your licks when you goof up. Producing cars with accelerators that stick is a costly mistake, but the uppity-ups at the Big T can console themselves with the fact that the company has now achieved the enviable status of being featured on YouTube.

Which brings me to the video at hand. When you watch this clip, dear readers, don't feel alarmed. I suspect the whole thing is either a TV commercial or a set up shot by an amateur videographer. However, just let me reassure you ... I'm certain not a single lawnmower was harmed in the making of this film.


The winner of the coupons for two boxes of General Mills cereals is Carol L. Congrats, Carol! Yummy breakfasts lie ahead.

Oh! That is a belly laugh! I'd comment further but Q and I need to go watch if for the 5th time! Happy Valentine's Day! Your gift of laughter is the best.

Very Funny. I'm sure it didn't take him long to mow that tiny patch of grass at that speed, after he got back from the hospital, that is.

That's why I use a riding lawn tractor!

Ha, thanks for the laugh. I think I would take a bumpy lawn mower ride over snow shoveling.

Reminds me of the first time I drove a skidoo at the age of nine, right through our front fence. I tend to clench my fists when I get scared and hey that causes acceleration. Hello fence.

That is too funny! I saw someone once with a luggage cart in the airport. The tighter they squeezed on the handle, which released the break, the faster they were towed down the ramp. It was absolutely hilarious, and thankfully, the person it was happening to was laughing harder than those of us watching.
Thanks for the laugh:)
