    1. JayLa, never mind putting pieces of meat in a mincer. You could throw the whole animal in.

  2. What a nice vintage car was demolished. Just only litter left. What a shame

    1. Gosia, Hitler's 'People's Car'. Maybe it good end to his ordered design.

    1. Fen, there is a good reason why the beetle disappeared.

    1. EC, everyone is so sentimental about a VW Beetle. Did you have experience with one?

    2. My mother owned, and loved a beetle when I was an impressionable nearly teenager. Fond memories.

    3. Fond memories does not a better car make. Ok, yes, R had one, in baby blue. It wasn't too bad.

  6. All those years that the last bit of veg went round and round on top of the mincer - why did it not occur to me to stop for a minute or even wind backwards so the veg could settle?
    I do feel stupid but once again I've had a Eureka moment. TY Andrew.

    1. It is a lesson FC. If I stop our microwave or clothes dryer while they are working, back on they reverse themselves. You could have pushed the remaining bit down with your finger. Many have the scars to prove it was done.

    1. Merle, did you note that the company name used in the video is actually the name of the manufacturer of the crusher. It is a clever ad for their machine.

  8. See? THIS is what happens when people willfully ignore parking directives! His own fault.....although the sign doesn't actually state offenders will have their cars shredded...and it was a shame to see such a pretty car get wrecked.

    1. River, weren't the pieces churned out at the other end so small. It did a good job. It was just a piece of temporary art.

    1. Maybe too harsh Grace, but I bet he will never park in an MD car space again.

    2. He'll probably never have a car again :)

  10. I felt sad watching that; a little like a child who has just discovered for the first time that beloved pets don't live for ever.

    1. Victor, no doubt it was once someone's much loved car and there is a little grieving when you get rid of a car. Most of my tired and worn out cars would have ended up like this.

    2. I saw more than that in the video, Andrew. To me, the way the car was tossed about was like an animal in anguish when being attacked and devoured by a predator. It actually made my stomach churn.

    3. Yes, I get your point.

  11. So, I guess from your responses, you're not a big fan of the VW Beetle!
