& Americans think we're eccentric

Two weeks to get a tire off? It's no wonder he shot the thing. If I'd have been there I might have shot it myself.

His mistake was using a 12 gauge loaded with buckshot. He should have used a .44 Magnum. That would have taken the whole wheel stud clean off. Oh, and stand to the side rather than in front. It's obvious this guy's an amateur.

Hey Pete...Does R.A.P.E. keep one of those tools in the toolbox. I understand "snap-on" has a new model coming out in the spring. Semi auto and a 50 shot magazine.

Since we are on the subjest, I have a 6x10 dent in the front passsenger side fender of my fathers oldsmobile. Can you recommend the appropriate charge of C4 for the repair? It seems small, will the blast cap alone work?

Al...yes we think your eccentric...and we are jealous. That sir is a huge step up from where we are standing.
