ROTFLMFAO!  Now that really would be amusing!

In my first employer-paid move after leaving school, the
moving crew was a bunch of GORILLAs!  Jeez, these guys would
carry a refrigerator over one shoulder and a couch under the
other arm!!  Damn intimidating!

At the time, I had LOTS of electronic supplies (i.e., I filled
a 30+ foot moving van BY MYSELF).  All packed neatly in nice little

*One* of the boxes -- I believe a case of Molson's Golden Ale (?)
sat in the middle of the floor in my workroom.

One by one, I watched each of these guys (gorillas?) reach down
with one hand to grab the box while carrying something else in
the other hand.  Each of them gave up on it -- "I'll get that

When one of the guys *finally* had two hands free and went to
bend over to lift it, he stood up -- and his *hands* stayed
glued to the floor.  He was truly impressed with this
