250-lb. cast-iron grate. To your face.

And I thought my 45-minute commute was a pain.
39-year-old Pawel Swierczynski of North Easton, Massachusetts experienced a much more, well, painful kind of pain when a 250-lb. cast-iron sewer grate went crashing through his windshield, and ended up sitting in his backseat. Swierczynski’s being treated for his injuries, and the Massachusetts Highway Department is busy welding down all the state’s catch basin grates as a temporary solution.

I may never complain about traffic again. I’ll be all set as long as a giant hunk of iron doesn’t take my face off.

… But if it does, I’ll take comfort in knowing that Brigham & Women’s Hospital in Boston will now perform face transplants.

    Speaking of MA commuters, here’s a funny joke:There’s a guy from Maine, a guy from Vermont, a guy from New Hampshire, and a guy from Massachusetts all driving in a car. They notice they’re getting pretty bad gas mileage, so the guy from Maine says, “Well, we have plenty more of these in Maine,” and throws some lobsters out of the car. The guy from Vermont follows suit and says, “You’re right, I can always get more of this later,” and throws out some maple syrup. Then the guy from New Hampshire says, “Well, we have too many of these in New Hampshire,” and throws out the guy from Massachusetts.
