The sunlight adds a nice touch to the carnage
Donny quickly confessed and apologized, but it was too late ... I had already taken the pictures and thought up this post. The question is, how did he do it??
1.) Box Jumping? Since he has suddenly gained a great deal of mass from the 6 Month Muscle Gain Challenge, all of that extra Grade A Beef was just too much for the boxes to handle.
2.) Maliciously? In a Hulk-like state of steroid induced rage, he picked up both of the boxes by the handles, smashed them together, and then threw them against the wall as he yelled "Donny Smash!!"
3.) Bonehead? Instead of spending the extra 45 seconds to set up the lifting blocks (and use them for their intended purpose), he decided to snatch from the jump boxes instead. Apparently they're not designed to have barbells crash down upon them from high in the air. Who knew!?
The answer is of course number 3. I'm not blaming him completely though, because if I had to guess somebody else had already gotten away with this earlier in the day and weakened the boxes structural integrity. How do I know that? Because everyone is lazy and complains that setting up the lifting blocks is too hard and too much work. I assure you it is not. I timed it just to prove a point. 45 seconds. (In case you're not intimately familiar with the Blocks, please see my all-time favorite post HERE)
Yes, contrary to popular belief these can be used as more than just a giant towel holder. And they're usage could save a young jump box's life.
