A proper ejection seat is something that Big Joe is missing.  Sometime's it's difficult to get down off that lofty height.

We could go with a parachute.  Although when He Who Likes To Volunteer Me is operating Big Joe, I like the idea of an ejection seat.

Which reminds me:  Where will the cup holder for HWLTVM go?
What–me worry?

It's nice that HWMNBN looks out for HWLTVH. I'd settle for the seat being bolted down. And a sun shade...

It's not a Presidential Palanquin.

We'd have to take off the wheels and replace them with two poles (pun not intended) for it to be one of those. The whining would be unbearable.

Now THAT would be a picture!
