Couldn't have done it if I was trying....

I noticed a large icicle hanging off the edge of the house today and decided to knock it off before it fell onto someone. The only thing on hand was a snow shovel but I figured I could hit it from the ground if I threw it right. I lined up parallel to the house on the porch side and threw the shovel blade first and well, this happened.......


















I still don't quite know how I managed it but the shovel did a backflip mid-air after hitting a few icicles on the gutter and managed to put itself into the small gap between the gutter and the house. I'm still a bit dumbfounded by the whole thing.....

(I since got a telescoping pole saw and got it down)

This is why you should videotape the execution of your ideas.

America's Funniest Home Videos is still on the air, right?

Depends. Can he sell it as "The first wonder of the street" and charge admission?
