It’s a story as old as the Bible itself, a story about two brothers, Titus and Dudley Cabazon. Paternal twins, Titus was born three minutes ahead of Dudley. As a result, he was given the cool name, inspired by the Roman emperor Titus Flavius Caesar Vespasianus Augustus. Dudley on the other hand was named after Dudley Do-Right, one of his father’s favorite cartoon characters. He was almost named “Scooby” had his father not experienced a sudden bout of compassion.
As fate bestowed the first born, Titus was great at everything. He excelled in academics, sports and anything else he tried. Even when it came to women… Titus went to their senior prom with his girlfriend, a Norwegian exchange student, Enne Borksoloffsön, who worked as a Victoria’s Secret model during summers. Dudley went to the prom with his cousin Wendy (a.k.a. Wrecking-Ball Wendy because she looked like one). In contrast, Dudley only excelled at one thing: being jealous of Titus.
Before Titus was slated to go to Harvard and Dudley started his career as a cattle prod tester, their father who was a carpenter suffered a slipped disc. Fortunately, he was able to get surgery but his doctor warned him that if he bent down too much while working, he may do irreparable damage to his spine and never work again.
Mr. Cabazon was torn. Early retirement wasn’t an option with Titus going to Harvard but he knew that on any job site, he’d have to bend over to work on carpentry projects. If only there was something that elevated the materials so he wouldn’t have to bend over too much. Dudley resolved himself to finding a solution. Even though Dudley had nothing to gain by his twit brother going to Harvard, he saw the situation as an opportunity to get into his father’s good graces. And if he succeeded, his perfect brother would be indebted to him!
Dudley worked tirelessly for days on end to invent a device that would elevate work pieces. No food or sleep, just occasional sips of pomegranate juice to sustain him. He emerged from his cocoon with a prototype. The device looked like two capital A’s positioned parallel to one another and held together at their apexes by a perpendicular crossbar. Two of those devices side by side could support an ample-sized work piece. “What do you call it?” his father asked.
Dudley beamed, “I call it the sawpony!” The engineering was sound but just one problem, the sawpony was only six inches high. His father liked the concept but elevating materials only six inches off the ground still meant he’d have to bend over a lot. As timing would have it, Titus arrived home after taking Enne lingerie shopping and walked in on his father and brother conversing about the sawpony.
“Hey, what if you put longer legs on it so it would have a height of about 30 inches,” chimed in Titus. “You wouldn’t have to bend over then. What do you think, Dad? Oh, and because it’ll be taller, you should call it the sawhorse!”
