What do you call a collector of vacuum cleaners? Yours truly, me, myself and I.
You never see door to door vacuum cleaner salesmen anymore, thankfully.
Only I could end up with five more vacuum cleaners. What's wrong with a Ewbank or an 'house' brush? They are organic, don't use electricity and don't make a noise and they don't bang into skirting boards when you're nursing an hangover on a Saturday morning like they use to do when my dear old dad would "Hoover" the house to punish me for coming in late and sleeping in the bath. Happy days!
According to Professor Google a Chicago inventor, Ives Mcgaffey patented a sweeping machine in 1869 and called the first hand pumped vacuum cleaner the "Whirlwind" and it was made of wood and canvas. I thought "the Whirlwind" was Jimmy White the Snooker player.
In Greek mythology there is a bloke called Sisyphus who is condemned to carry big rocks up hills for all eternity. I reckon I will be made to carry an Hoover or a Henry, Goblin or a Vàx all around Paradise.
