TWW is The Warped Woodturner who is a local artist living in a suburb of Springbrook, WI (pop 87). His mission is to use a wood lathe to make interesting but mostly useless objects from locally-sequestered carbon for tourists to bring back to the city to give to people they had to buy something for but don't like that well. His target market is the senior citizens since their vision is not as good as it used to be so cannot see the defects as well.

TWW now thinks he is a trapper
Above is a trap with a name like 'Better Rodent Trap' or something like that. The peas and beans have been a disaster this year. They grew but the rodents who ate them grew and multiplied. Last year we got a bunch of peas and beans but this year we have not been so lucky. With the hopes of salvaging his gardens TWW shed his animal rights values and started trapping right in the gardens. Above are some of the peas that actually made it to adolescence. Below is a trap at work. This time it got a mouse but usually it is a small gopher who met its mark. TWW hopes his contribution to natural selection will result in gophers who do not eat gardens.
