WASHINGTON, DC – Ever get cold shoveling?  Or exhausted?  Maybe it is time to try the daVinci robot shovel.  This fantastic extension for the da Vinci robot allows shoveling of snow from the warmth and comfort of your home.  If you are a surgeon this is a fantastic moonlighting opportunity!  While your residents are stuck at the hospital you can take the da Vinci home and make some CASH!

“Business is booming this weekend!” proclaimed Dr. Wilcox.  “I have essentially been positioned in my da Vinci chair in my house and I have shoveled my entire neighborhood at $140 a house.  The neighbors love the precision of the da Vinci shovel!”  It is true they can shovel accurately to within 0.5 cm of the driveway’s edge.

Sometimes the da Vinci gets stuck, but the solution is simple.  They have surgical residents and physician assistants prestaged along the route to maneuver trocars or pop the wheels out of the snow and place chains on them.

GomerBlog did do some investigating, and while the da Vinci shovel did allow the surgeons to shovel driveways and sidewalks from inside their house, it seemed to take about 3 times longer than if you just hired a neighborhood kid to do it the old fashioned way and cost way more than the going rate of $20 a house.
