    Default Ideas on pulling Rugged from that chimney

    Some one has to have a way of getting Rugged out of that chimney. I just wish he would quit kicking like that.

    According to his posts in the HD water heater element thread he must have some vodka in there so he might be happy there at least until the vodka runs out.

    I hope everyone had a merry Christmas.

    I think this might be Rugged and his girlfriend, but I'm not sure, or maybe he was searching for a leak.

    And I wear a wine bottle to the head nicely!


    What's amazing was when I went down that chimney I was white, I came out a different nationality and thin!

    Screw you Jenny Craig! I got the patented formula without your worthless rice cakes and styrofoam brownies!


    The music settled me down though quite nicely.

    My solution would do it.
    Put me and an engineer at the fireplace and have us debate the semantics of almost anything plumbing.
    Further the effect with a honey glazed donut dangling a few feet above Rugged.
    He'll be out in no time.
    Unfortunately, this could have dangerous long-term effects on him psychologically.

    Tell him he's got a phone call from a customer that wants to know the price of the materials for a job and what is the lowest price Rugged is willing to do it for.

    He'll be so looking forward to the chew out he'll fly out of the thing.

    I will send over a couple kids of mine and my boss and by the time they leave he will want more liquor and won't care he is stuck in the chimney.

    Best idea yet, I'll stand near him on the roof...start telling him I installed a few "cleanout thingies".
    The ensuing 20 mile foot chase will be very beneficial for his health.

    Don't forget to wear all the appropriate safety gear if you go up on that roof or the government will get you.

    I wonder if there are forms and permits for rescueing a drunk, stuck, upside down santa from a chimney?

    Smile

    And make sure to mention the "hot water heater" you installed...

    there is nothing better than the
    manly smell of WD 40 in the air
    while banging away on brass with a chisel and hammer...

    it smells like......victory......

    do not hit your thumb...

    You will notice that I went up and pulled him out.
    He was starting to like it up there, but I figured
    enough is enough.
    Pretty soon, all the kids in the neighborhood were going to get crazy ideas, and mothers would be looking for their kids everywhere.

    Hey husband, have you seen Johnny?

    No, but I did see some legs sticking out of the chimney when I drove up.

    Yeah, pretty soon, I would be seeing legs sticking out of chimneys everywhere and then grades would start going down.
    Now I know, it's still Winter Break, but if you have kids sticking out of chimneys everywhere, then what's next?
    So knowing that the foolishness had to stop, I climbed up there and pulled him out.
