I've a used Rover (5hp B&S 4 stroke) Garden Shredder which 'effortlessly'
Doubles as an aluminum Beer Can Shredder,
I'm not suggesting this is a safe or sensible activity for others to engage
and putting any such safety aspects aside (till a later stage),
would the aluminum beer cans be any more likely to cause engine crankshaft
than the 40mm dead hardwood which it copes with adequately also, but with
I think someone may have opened a few too many beer cans to get this far
No, the cans aren't going to be a problem for the engine or crankshaft,
but they may dull the blades faster than the wood and other plant
material they were designed for.
Also, shredding the cans reduces the number of places you can take them
to recycle. Some places are set up for only cans, and will not accept
shredded aluminum. (Unless you've *really* opened too many beer cans,
I'm pretty sure you don't live someplace with a deposit on cans because
if you did, I'm sure you'd know that a single can is worth more whole
than shredded when a deposit is involved.)
And I'll defer the safety concerns as well, since it doesn't seem to be
something that you'd be concerned about anyway.

There is a joke going around that goes something like this: “Did you
hear that Qusay and Uday are ed-day?”
Clearly the humor is a play on the uncanny fact that the names of
Saddam Hussein’s sons sound an awful like Pig-Latin verbiage. I
pondered this notion as the sounds of laughter faded away from my most
recent telling of the joke. I wondered, is there more to it? Could
there really be a Pig-Latin connection to the Hussein family?
And what of the shadowy third son we have heard about in news reports.
Does anyone really know what his name is? I think I do.
The third son disappeared from public view shortly after the first
Gulf War in 1991. Is it a coincidence that shortly after that in 1995,
halfway around the world a company was started in California with a
Pig-Latin sounding name? Have you ever wondered why there is so much
Saddam Hussein related memorabilia sold on E-Bay? Could it be that
someone is proud of their father the tyrant? Could it be that lost and
forgotten son, Ebay Hussein?
You’ve probably noticed that there are many different spellings of
Arabic names depending on which news source you are reading. The truth
is that there is no consensus how to write Arabic words in English. If
we are going to investigate Arabic names we must therefore use
phonetic spellings. Saddam’s sons then become Koosay, Eebay, and
Now if we translate those names from Pig Latin back into English we
have Skoo Bee Doo. Is this a veiled reference to the cartoon dog from
the 1970s, Scooby Doo? Can it be anything but that?
Well consider this. Scooby Doo’s final year of first-run shows was
1977. It was also in 1977 that Saddam Hussein came to power in the
ruling Baath Party.
Coincidence? You decide.
