Uncle Sal and the Spectacular Statue (Episode 165)

Uncle Sal walked into Giacomo's place and saw a giant straw-colored toad statue by the door. It was three feet tall and about as big around as a trash can lid. The toad was designed with overalls a big hat, and a piece of straw sticking out of its mouth.

"Holy mackerel! Will ya look at that? Where on earth did you get that?"

"Isn't that awesome? I got it at an estate sale."

Uncle Sal swatted a mosquito on his The Scrams t-shirt and made his way to the bar where he took some ice from the ice bucket and dropped it into a Harvey Mudd highball glass. "But how on earth did you take it away from there? And then how on earth did you get it up the driveway and the stairs into the house? That thing must weigh a ton."

"Well, to get it away from the house where the estate sale was, I had to call my friend Luther. He's got a pickup truck and a pallet jack. He gets that thing on the pallet jack and he realizes how heavy it is. He gets it into the bed of his truck and he says, 'I got news for you. There is no way we're going to get this in your house. Even if I can get it up the driveway, we won't be able to get it in the door by ourselves.' So, he comes up with a plan. He takes it from the house to his workshop. Now, it took a while, but he was able to hollow the whole thing out and he just brought it here yesterday. Now, anything valuable, or anything I want to hide from the girlfriend. I can just put it in there, because who's going to think to look inside it?"

Uncle Sal returned to the entry and took a long look at the statue. "There it is in all its glory and all because your friend was able to hollow the yellow hick toad."
