I know what you are thinking, “This is a battle Royal of hair”. But no. This is a match of wits. This of course is an easy match to pick. I would take Macgyver all day long that is until he takes on the likes of Chuck Norris, a man/machine who towers over all.
I tried my hand at some Macgyver-like actions a few weeks ago after I comitted one of the cardinal sins of the mobile pizza business. I forgot the oven tools when we went to Brookwood Farmer’s market a few weeks ago. I guess it could have been worse because I could have forgotten the wood or the dough which I couldn’t have replaced but none the less there I was with a fire, pizza dough, and hungry customers. The only impass though would be the fact that I am not Inspector Gadget and cannot reach my arm into an 800 degree oven and pull out a pizza pie.
Armed with a debit card and some old episodes of Macgyver in my head, I went to home depot to craft a solutuion. $65 and 30 minutes later I had a roll of duct tape, a wooden handle, a metal brush head, a grill brush, rebar wire, and an edging shovel. What could you make with such? In the end, the pizzas were made and served and I think people were happy but I wasn’t. I need my tools. I mean would you tell Indiana Jones “no whip”. I don’t think so, unless you were Macgyver or Chuck Norris.
