Clearly there is a need for shovel control.

Shovels don't kill people - people kill people!

When shovels are outlawed, only outlaws will have shovels.

Thank goodness backhoes are licensed. Is it time to extend the same controls to shovels?

Yeah, musical - I always hit people with shovels when I'm having a bad day. Remind me to steer clear of you!
