Rachel Maddow and Caterpillar 320BL
As a Late Show guest, Rachel Maddow is always entertaining and informative. And CelebriGum is always glad to have her. But seeing as this is her fourth CelebriGum appearance, and she's out of focus, this entry really needs something else to make it special.
The Caterpillar 320BL is a different kind of CelebriGum celebrity. It's a hydraulic excavator with a 389 cubic inch turbocharged six cylinder engine, a 7 foot 8 inch track gauge, and a 9 foot tail swing radius. And with a maximum bucket capacity of 2 cubic yards, a maximum digging depth of 24 feet 9 inches, and an impressive 42,050 foot pounds of swing torque, there's no question that it's a star worthy of being photographed with the gum.
Great to have you with us, Caterpillar 320BL. Just try to get this mess cleaned up by Monday afternoon. Don Rickles is coming, and if he's inconvenienced, he'll fire off some choice insults about your maximum cutting height and your hydraulic pump flow capacity.
