Hawg Legg’s take on leaf blowers

Dear Editor:I would like to thank our local noise enforcement patrol for bringing the leaf blower gangs to justice. It was getting so bad, I could hardly hear my Hawg backfire!Why just last weekend, we were riding our Harleys down Main Street in the Festival of Flatulence parade when all a sudden, the ol’ belcher I was riding sounded like it had thrown a rod or somethin’, and I made my buddies Pigger and Porkchop pull over so’s we could figger out the problem. Porkchop suggested that my muffler had wore out, but I pointed out that I didn’t have one to begin with. (He’s not too bright.) Turns out, there was nuthin’ wrong with ma hawg. It was a suspicious looking gang of landscape hooligans on a nearby lawn, and they were pollutin’ the air with leaf blower noise!Now if they could just make them leaf blowers sound like Harleys, nobody would pay ’em no mind. This is ol’ Hawg Legg saying, “Don’t forget to enjoy this summer’s Pigs on Hawgs Festival of Flatulence Parade” from any corner of town. And thanks again to our city noise enforcers for their selective hearing.Greg “Hawg Legg” PoschmanAspen
