The joke would have made more sense if it were a giant kitchen knife.

:lol2: Yes!! (But that size would mean only one case of carrots at a time!) I'm currently heming and hawing about a mobile unit; ie. small truck vs.tricycle/sophisticated vs. simple, etc., and a wheel that size would "sorely", (sorry) test my calves in case I went the tricycle option!!!!

Whew!! After the last two comments, I was worried that one of the (many) things I really like in this forum, ie. sense of humor, had been quarantined.

"I'm not going to faff around with no pissant 300 mm gyuoto when I can whack down this 2000 mm baby from 3 paces and get the job done in 3 minutes flat".:justkidding:

The maker's girlfriend was overheard saying "Dear is that a knife in your pocket or are you just happy to see me?" They later were married and had 12 children.
