Crown Molding


I hate to ask this you guys but would it be cheaper to get midgets or carnies to put up crown on a free standing bread box? And what would the "going rate" be? Oh by the way this job is in Tim-buck-to. Thanks for your input. You guys are the GREATEST.

I prefer santa and his little helpers.
All you have to do is write it down and on Dec. 25th it comes true.

Timbuktu? Hell, don't they have Pygmies or lawn jockeys or something over there you can hire?

Re: Crown Molding


aweee.. the good ole free standing breadboxes.. tricky.. usually I would tell you the Fairies.. but they don't like to be "singled out as such" and sometimes (depending on their mood) like to be called pixies.. are in direct competition with the gnomes and trolls.. no body likes the trolls. They are usually ugly selfish lil bastards who stink.. yet because they are so foul, cry bigitism and more than not get the award for the contract. Gnomes, the peaceful old lil people are really great workers, albeit they can't fly and getting to free standing bread boxes may pose a challange.. have recently purchased a slew of scaffold systems that would make your average exterior guy drool.. so the choice is yours, I would choose wisely though.. never know WHO will sue you for discrimination pics are a must!
