Followup on the Salter Brecknell PS1000 Veterinary 1000lb Scale Reviewbomb

Friday, September 7th, 2012

A couple weeks ago, I invited readers to participate in a new Reviewbomb for the Salter Brecknell PS1000 Veterinary 1000lb Scale. So what did folks came up with?

The title of Scott McC’s review really says it all: “Too small for the serious camel enthusiast”. Roshan Vyas discussed the opposite problem, declaring the scale “Way too big for a miniature dachshund”. Meanwhile, Smashie’s review was full of fabulous fat momma jokes not heard since (or even during) the early 90s:

Sure, you already know that your mama is so fat that when her beeper goes off people think she’s backing up. But if you need to know exactly how much counterweight you need in your trebuchet to launch her over the walls of that enemy fortress, you need to know how much she actually weighs.

Perhaps the best of all, however, is from my pal Scott Simpson:

Here’s a secret about the world of large animal veterinarians: until now, big scales have been expensive and poorly built. So it’s fallen to the vet’s assistant, or “footsman,” to weigh the animals. They’re called “footsmen” because they determine the weight of the animal by–you guessed it–having it step on their foot.

Be sure to read the whole thing.

Of course, you can visit the Amazon product page to see them all, and it’s never to late to contribute your own as well.
