Cleaning Up

After observing my son the other day it dawned on me that to boys (young and old), anything is a gun. Recently in the process of saving the world my son shot all the bad guys with a vacuum cleaner attachment. What if life was really like that. No guns, just vacuums. They would do a background check when you bought a Dirt Devil. There would be a 3 day waiting period so emotionally-charged citizens couldn't leave the pawn shop and go on a mass cleaning spree. Police on patrol would carry Dust Busters in their holsters. Until things got ugly: “I need backup, now! I'm surrounded by 10 dust bunnies in here. This ain't pretty! Send in the Hoover!”
