Watch An Upright Piano Get Shredded



It's a little slow today for new posts, so until I find something more interesting, watch the full upright piano pictured above get shredded (click twice on the arrow above).

(HT: Grant Leonard)

Watch the shreding of a large copier, or an entire Dodge Daytona car, or pick many other items from this list.

Fantastic! Why bother tuning the piano when we can just shred it and buy a new one? And since we shredded all the keys, wire and wood together, it's not recyclable and goes straight to the landfill. (Recycling is for liberals anyway.) Now if we could just find some low-wage offshore workers to do the shredding, we could send these Americans off to work at Taco Bell and everything would be perfect. Thanks for the cool video!

Hmmm. Is that the device Saddam Hussein used to throw people into?
