Running on French Fry Oil While Taking Care Not to Strain or Heavy Lift

What can we say -- the boy is crazy about his car. The Great PD has been busily and merrily converting his twenty five year old Mercedes station wagon to run on used and reprocessed cooking oil. He bought the car off Craig's List and drove to Fresno to get it and now has something to do every waking weekend minute. It not only runs, but when you look into the engine cavity you see hoses and shmoses and bioshmeckies and oil doogums and filters and shmilters.

Who knew? The Great PD is without doubt the first Plotnik in world history to be able to look inside an engine compartment and not simply shake his head in a non-comprehending side-to-side ellipse, or at best nod to the mechanic standing next to him and say: "Yes, I agree, Clyde. I was thinking myself that it was probably the shmilter."

Meanwhile, A look at the advice sheet given to Plotnik by Drs. Snippem and So M. Up yields the following admonition: "No heavy lifting, straining or bending for ( 1 ) Week."

A closer look, however, shows that there is no mention of "rebounding," "jump shooting," or "driving to the basket." So, tomorrow Plotnik plans to play. He would love to vacuum today, but, hey. Doctors' orders.

So does PD now hang out at fast food places, waiting to get their chicken nugget grease?

The shmilter gets me every time. Clyde's a genius.

If straining and bending are not part of your basketball game, then welcome to my kind of basketball. (Anything that might cause you to spill your beer is right out.)
