Default Christmas Treat!!!

My friend says, "The sweeper just quit."
So I had her bring it over.

I had to tear the dirty old Hoover all the way down and bust the motor housing open.
Somehow, and I mostly posted this for the other Adam to appreciate, a piece of tinsel got sucked past the cat hair clogged filter on the motor housing, spun around a few thousand rotations, and settled right across the motor windings coming off the switch.
So that released the blue smoke and the motor quit.

It won't take but 1/2" of wire, a little solder, and a can of blue smoke to get her going again, but really.

Tinsel is cool hanging out the cat's butt, not cool in this instance.
I've just never seen a 4" piece of tinsel wreck anything.
I thought it was pretty interesting and I needed a break.

lol! Great save for your friend, Scott. I actually witnessed a cat push tinsel into a power receptacle. Needless to say, the cat got quite the shock when it was done.

I looked, but there was no other nearby cat named "Bubba" holding a beer or catnip dispenser.

If it's true that cats have nine lives, this one here just used 'em all up at once.

I once choked a teenager to death with a strand of tinsel.

When I was a member of E.L.F.S we used tinsel to cut through some jail cell bars to free Charlie.

Pull that tinsel out of your ass hard and fast.
Just like you're starting a lawn mower.
I've been told that's the proper method.
