“You only need two tools in life – WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn’t move and should, use the WD-40. If it shouldn’t move and does, use the duct tape.” So a wise man told me recently. Someone almost as wise was quick to remind him, that he neglected to mention vise grips. So with these three items, a man has all he really needs in his toolbox. And as Clint Eastwood reminds us in the movie Gran Torino: “Any man worth his salt can do half his household chores with just those three things. Anything else you need, you just borrow.” We will leave you with that for this week's Friday Afternoon Moment of Whimsy.

VISE grips, please.

You and Eastwood may have vice grips, but mine hold like a vise and are named that.

They really are handy. Duct tape is better than adhesive tape (my surgeon father's favorite). I think WD-40 is grand, but I think the smell is overpoweringly feminine.
