Whew! For a moment there, I thought the French were rising up in revolt again.

I hope I never have to see it in action.

That actually looks like it would be a pretty useful vehicle to plow snow with in some of our NoVA neighborhoods. You could push the snow with the blade and be protected from all the neighborhood kids trying to stop you by throwing snowballs.

The canon, though, is way over the top. :-)
