The other day I was sitting in the chair at the barbershop getting my haircut. We were solving all the worlds’ energy problems. The next customer walked in under the door. Yes, I said under the door.
I am not sure the green grasshopper wanted a haircut but his grand entrance got my attention. I think that I was the only witness to his appearance. I know my barber can not see anything when his mouth is open for talking.
The green grasshopper spoke up and told me that he came in to show us how to save energy.
I pointed him out to the barber who started a Rock-a-Billy dance, out of time with the music. Pretty soon, the green grasshopper was flattened and the barber returned to the business at hand.
I observed that the poor grasshopper had not needed to duck his head when he walked in under the door. I pointed out, to the proprietor, that there was a large draft (draught for you speakers of real English) of air blowing under the door. I suggested that the door sweep be adjusted to close the gap under the door. Commenting that fixing the door would prevent a vigilante mob of locust from seeking revenge in his shop.
Maybe he will fix it when snow starts blowing in under the door in a couple of months, unless the grasshopper mob gets him first.
Warning: If you do not want to be visited by the Green Energy Saving Grasshopper mob, fix the gap under your doors now. You will save energy in addition to securing your borders.
