Suspicious object

typewriter

I think I know what happened in Racine Wisconsin [Racine Journal Times] which led to the destruction of an electromechanical blogging device. An article in Forbes indicated that DYI retailer "Home Depot" would recycle used electronics equipment. Forbes probably meant "Office Depot", an electronics retailer down the street from "Home Depot." So a misguided soul left his portable electric typewriter in the parking lot outside of Home Depot, hoping it would be recycled. Perhaps the employees had never seen such a device and couldn't imagine why it would be abandoned outside of their store. So the local police were called and the strange object was destroyed. Now I need to figure out how to get rid of my old Remington in Racine without raising suspicion.
Comments:

Do you by chance mean a Remington typewriter? Or a Remington shotgun? Or Remington Steele? I don't really have any use for the first two, but, even though I'm not a HUGE Pierce Brosnan fan, I could think of a few good things he'd be good for around here. \*ROWR\* Yeah, feeding my cat is just one of them. Doing my dishes, doing laundry, packing for me...

Wow, I forgot how many different remingtons there are. I was referring to the typewriter, but when I emptied the old house in Racine the typewriter was gone so I don't have to worry about it. We found lots of other weird unidentifiable stuff though. Ginnie found a pedal powered sewing machine from the late 1800s which still works. Now that's reliable technology!
