    The water sure looked green, but the method sure isn't "Green". The eco freaks will hunt them down. I like how they put a muffler on the motor too.

    Maybe it was a school project? I don't think any of them can actually FIT in that pool...

    Clearly they have an iron issue...

    Ugh, that would be the worst "My heater isn't working" call ever.

    "What's wrong with the heater?"

    "Timing belt broke..."
