    I think it is supposed to help dissipate static electricity like a corona ball.

    Looks like it could mix up a bucket of paint with a cordless drill.:ROFLMAO:

    My top egg beater section is bent at a 45 degree angle now. I think a buzzard landed on it.:mad: I am going to try to bend it back straight. Time to break out the old air rifle now.....

    I don't think the egg beater qualifies as a cap hat does it?

    It should be obvious that it is a rest stop for birds. Or a feeding station for hawks, or cats.

    Ummm.....THAT has already happened. Took out a light, corona ball must have gotten caught. They banned me from the drive thru altogether, I am more than happy to walk in though.
