A new study this week indicates that most owners of the popular electric wheelchair 'Hover About' are basically just lazy.

A poll given to 1200 owners of this device found that people are sick and tired of the daily stress of walking upright.

The CEO of Hover About said, "We have found that our base clientele are men and woman in the age range of 18 - 55 who are unemployed, lazy and live near Grady Hospital in Atlanta, Georgia."

Henry Jenkins is a Hover About owner: "I love my new means of travel - people seem to give me more respect when I'm driving in my Hover About. Sometimes, folks buy me lunch because they feel bad for me. I don't see why everyone does not own one."

A local street gang called 'Hover About Hell Raisers' have been reported performing drive by shootings while operating their Hover About. Many oppose the use of this device for anything other than an actual handicap.

Scott Llop from Atlanta says, "I've considered hitting any one of these fake Hover About customers with my vehicle as they hold up traffic at cross walks."

David Hughes from Atlanta - "I bought one for my grandmother last Christmas and she ended up getting shot by the 'Hell Raisers' and they stole her scooter."

Hover About Inc. stock has tripled since the commercials began to air 4 years ago.
