Lawnmower Limbo

There are no winners in Riding Lawnmower Limbo.
In fact, Riding Lawnmower Limbo isn’t a thing.

No matter how tempting it looks, don’t do it.
When the branches start taunting you, trying to convince you that you can do the whole thing without ever stopping, backing up or getting off, don’t believe them.

The ducks and geese can organize their own orchard limbo. They'll probably do fine so long as they don't learn how to use the lawnmower...

The ducks and geese can organize their own orchard limbo. They’ll probably do fine so long as they don’t learn how to use the lawnmower…

You know why?

Because if you are mowing an area at high speeds (There are totally winners at high speed lawn mowing just so long as you have the reflexes to miss the dead cat!) and you start doing the lawnmower limbo, you will lose. You will lose your sunglasses and your ear muffs and a bunch of skin off your back and the only thing you will gain is a lump on your head for your efforts.
Because it’s the limbo.
And, as everyone knows, when you successfully limbo once, the bar just gets lower and lower and lower – until you bleed.

True story.

Apparently branches make me competitive. I went under this one, you know, the one the dog is walking around...

There is no such thing as Riding Lawnmower Limbo.

But if there were, I would totally be a star.

A high speed, bleeding, bruised star…but still a star!

      Oh I’m fine, I mean I did get a lump and a bunch of scratches, but I could have just stopped. Maybe the bump on the head was the problem… 😉

    Is the lawnmower ok??!

    (Glad you’re okay – rock star)

  2. Love it! Having played “bush hog limbo” many times I can aver that I have never won but I have had some dramatic losses. Don’t stop playing, but do slow down.

      Bush Hog Limbo is a whole new limbo level. A lot further to fall to the ground from a tractor! And I can’t slow down too much, I might not win the speed lawn mowing contest and even more importantly it will take soooo long to do my least favorite activity!

    I totally play this game! Although I must say I am more a fan of Riding Lawnmower Limbo: Evergreen Edition. While the limbs are more forgiving, there is an uncomfortable sappy component that adds a little excitement. (How many washes does it take to get sap out of hair? Anyone?!)
