It's loosely based on Alabama's legendary "Yellow Mama." She dispatched quite a few during her career here. Added a bit of artistic license to the project. Always good for the neighbors to know that you own a machine gun and build electric chairs in the garage in your spare time.......

Tennessee has an electric chair (no longer used, I believe) that looks much like the one you made. It is (or was) yellow also.

It was called "Old Smokey!" blink.gif I wonder why? wink.gif

Good way to have roast pumkins if some board members haven't dispached all the orange beasts that ventured out of the patch. I noticed them on clearance special at grocery store today, 75% 0ff. Get the L and C drums ready, in a day or two their going to be 15 - 25 cents and just asking to be infront of the stucco blast of your favorite chopper, be it 21,28, or M1. I'm sure the better half would use it in the kitchen more if it also made julian fries.....

...maybe some board member can use that as excuse why they need one of every model; I tried but the better half said something about cucumber sandwiches....
