So, without wishing to presume too much about Dave's aspirations for the future, it might be reasonable to conjecture that he's a guy who knows how to get his hands dirty around livestock and related stuff.
And so, I was thinkin', there's this old slang term for "dirt farmer" that's been with us a long time: sod buster.
I'm further thinkin' that there's a knife by that name, and one of those in a box might say, "welcome back to the world of tilling the soil."
