The Great Tennis Ball Secret…

Another in the series of posts held over from The Great Internetage Outage…

I went in to town a couple of days ago, and bought three cheap tennis balls for £1.

No, I’m not taking up tennis – or even cheap tennis.

I picked up a helpful piece of tennis-ball-related information from Brave New Maldon and decided to put it to good effect.

And here is one of those tennis balls in action:

Cunning, eh?

    In NZ the handles have small locking levers that can be flipped down when the main lever is squeezed fully up. I take it the UK have not invented those yet?

    The Drudge Report – March 19, 2011

    A well known British celebrity, known primarily as a blogger, podcaster and novelist, disappeared today in a blinding flash of light. Local authorities are investigating the cause. An unnamed source close to the investigation has said that possibilities include a misfired military laser, Fukushima radiation and spontaneous human combustion. The local constable was unable to explain the significance of slightly charred tennis ball, which was only physical evidence left at the scene.

    Film at eleven.

    Allister/Bulldog, we used to have those locking levers but they got vanished. I blame Thatcher.

    They have vanished in most of the States also. I blame Thatcher also.

  5. Oooh what a good idea – those levers are normally so bloody stiff. Does the nozzle still automatically turn off when the tank is full?

  6. Brennig says:

    Oh yes indeedy, the sensors shut the thing down when the tank gets to full; haven’t had any spillage so far.
