    It looks like a combination walker / shopping caddy. I can imagine old Swedes pushing it around their local market.

    When I saw the picture I thought of the scene in "Van Wilder."

    hey now.. I own a JERKER!

    I hate IKEA in Schaumburg. It's only worth going there at 9am on weekdays... otherwise.. too many people. I can't wait for the Bolingbrook store to open.
    Dude, I'm cheesing so hard right now.

    What the heck is that? looks like the bastard son of a buffet table with wheels and a stool!
    Somehow I believe that'd be something quite bad for anybody's back... or mabye it's just me that hates chairs without a back....

    When your there go to the third floor and stand by the edge so you can look down. If it is busy (which it will be) you can feel the floor shake.

    Is this going to replace the cubicle ?

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.

    I don't think that I could own that one... I would end up putting a motorcycle engine on it so I could drive it around.
    Invest in the things today, that provide the returns tomorrow.

    So that container under the seat is for storing farts then?

    I have a JERKER desk too. It has served me well. Recently got the matching shelves.
