I really enjoyed this ...

I needed a good laugh considering what a crap day I've had as we got nearly 11 inches of rain in an equal number of hours.

Wonder if the Dyson would suck up rainwater?

5 thumbs, good story.

There's an urban legend about some guy in San Francisco CA who tried to use his vacuum cleaner to suck something else besides dog hair!

Stop moaning Cap.

You got a new Dyson.

We've got one, bit I try to avoid using it. I tell Mrs Shuttlecock that it's too technically complex for me to operate.

Like the dishwasher, the lawn mower, and the washing machine.
