So...outside our offices this morning there is one of these things...

...slowly and laboriously tearing up the sidewalk...one gigantic *SLAM* at a time.

We have no idea why.

It's incredibly loud and is actually shaking the building.

We've dubbed it "The Migraine Maker."

Well played, Tuesday.  Well played.
