Hidey-ho, Handyman Show devotees and all hardcore handy folk. This is The Handyman’s first blog post, for whatever that’s worth. Don’t tell the writers ’cause I stole their password and they might not be pleased about that. Oh well, it’s my show, so, again, whatever.
The Handyman’s been riding his writin’ staff (they hate that layin’ off the “g” … there, did it again!) for something to represent the Handy Code, which is, of course, unspoken and yet broadcast quite visibly by that self-sufficient swagger one develops after logging several hundred hours in The Shop. Sounds like quite a challenge, don’t it though?
Well, apparently, it’s tough to stump the writers (although I’ll continue to put them through the paces, believe you me). So, without any further ado, here’s fruit of their labors, created for all of The Handyman’s fellow Shop Junkies … the Official Handyman Pledge.
I pledge allegiance to my shop
and all the tools in it.
And with my mad skills,
which I will use wisely,
make projects that are super chocolate,
with frugality and more free time for me.
And remember … when you speak it, be sure to stick yer chest out with the full force of all of that built-up pride you normally don’t make a show of when company’s over.
And, on a completely different note, The Handyman is currently reviewing applications for the Handyman Booster Club. What? Perhaps you prefer “Votary” to “Booster”? The Handyman doesn’t care what you call, as long as you don’t call yourselves “disciples”. The Handyman might feel awkward about that.
