    Dead Cone

    Ok, so I know I said I had to spend less time on PT, but it's my first day of my self-imposed ban....and it's so hard!!! I've been here all morning! I only responded to a few posts, not near as many as I normally would, and I've still been here all morning!

    Anyway, back to the subject of this post.

    I have no idea what the "cone" thing is that was going around here for awhile, but I came to work and saw this and thought I better report it.

    One dead cone. It's kinda hard to see because it's under the car.


    Here's it is a little closer.


    So what do I do about this blatant cone abuse?

    I have an update already.

    The murderer has left the scene. At least the put the poor cone on the sidewalk so it wouldn't get run over anymore, but my question is, is it really dead or can it be revived? It looks almost like it can be revived. It might be a little deformed, but might still be able to live a long happy life. What do I do?


    This is right across the street from me here at work, and I'm torn. Should I run over and kidnap it and try and revive it or do I assume it's dead and leave it be, hoping its rightful owners will find it and give it a decent burial?

    That's so sad.

    This last weekend I saw Cones being sold into slavery at a garage sale. Who should I contact about this cone abuse?

    These are not the droids you were looking for

    Yes, it appears that that cone can be saved. You have to act fast before it is too late. What you need to do is carefully straighten it back up, go slowly so you don't hurt the cone. Then, to help it out some more it is best to take some silt, little chunks of asphalt, and some concrete and mix it up in some wet contrete and feed it to it. I guarentee it will work.

    If it is dead, burry it under a pile of gravel, that is the best place for a dead cone to be....they love gravel.

    Ask Amy about this too, she is real smart when it comes to cones.

    Connan said he is going to pray for that cone and hope it pulls through.

    Oh no! What a poor cone! I think YLL has some good advice...be real careful when you are straightening it! With a little love and nurturing I think it'll pull through.

    I witnissed the most horrible thing today while waiting on the bus for us to pull off after school. In the student parking lot, a student driver had carelessly run over a nice, bright, cone. He had no damage at all, until this crazy person ran him over.

    I had been sitting there amazed by such a beautiful creature.. then boom.... right in front of my eyes. He lay there on the ground, people stepping over him. I felt so bad. I should have gone back for him and rescued him.

    Poor, poor cones. Those pictures were so graphic, yet they must be shown, so as the public can become truly aware of the terrible fate so many cones endure. Their suffering goes largely unnoticed in this busy world. That is why they so lucky to have you as their voice, a dedicated, compassionate, and vocal few who will fight for the day when cones too have rights. When blatant cone abuse will no longer go on ignored and unpunished. When any cone will enjoy the same freedom as its living counterpart.

    I applaud you.

    Quick!!! Call 911 Cone Ambulance. Maybe they can do CPR (Cone Pulmonary Resusciation) on it!!

    Oh the travesty!!! Such irresponsible drivers! It looks like Ms. Cone will be in traction for some time now.

    That pictures has given me nightmares. Will I ever sleep again????

    BTW, where can I get one of these precious creatures??? It would have a wonderful life, I promise!!
