FOF Observation #24


The "FOF Observations" are a series of "Perpetual Posts" where I will share with you, my readers, short little observations that I have made (or will be making) on being the father of a large family. You will be able to access each of the posts in a cohesive list by clicking on the "FOF Observations" link in the "Perpetual Posts" group on the sidebar.

Just when you think that the crazy stuff you see on the internet is a hoax, something comes along and reassures you that there just may be some validity to the Darwin Awards!




Yup folks… This is TOTALLY real.  Not faked.  Not stolen pics.  I took these myself. 

I was on my lunch break walk and this car drove up past me – EB on Old Shakopee Road just before the 98th St. split.  (Near the RR Crossing).

That is a couch stackedTetris’ed” on top of what looks like a coffee table or two night stands.

Worse part of it??  Look carefully at the tie-downs (or lack there of)…


  1. I once moved a full sized mattress/box springs set on the top of an Escort Station wagon, tied down with garden hoses.

    Because my girlfriend 9now The Boss Lady) wanted me to move her stuff while she was working or at a party or studying or drinking with the guys or something.

  2. David,
    If you observe closely, there IS ONE tie-down - going through the back windows. OMG, I guess without a trailer hitch, this was the only option. And, one will notice, the headlights are on . . . for safety!


  3. ......AAAAANNNNDDDD this is why my hubby has a job. You know this found it's way to the middle lane of NB 35W somewhere.

  4. You were the guy with the camera!!! Had I known I would have waved!

  5. I have soooooo been guilty of this in the past, smh, looking back now it does seem rather stupid!

  6. LOL Love the post and I'm glad you got the pics. Just goes to show you what people will do when they use their brain. LOL

  7. Hi there, thank you for swinging by my blog! I look forward to catching up here as well, you've been hard at work!
