    ROFLMAO!!!!!

    You forgot two...

    Half-inch drive long handle ratchet. I would define this as a tool carefully calibated to break or strip out at precisely 99% of your maximum isometric strength. This is so you develop MAXIMUM FORCE when hitting your knuckles, elbow, head, or other body part on a fixed metal obstruction.
    The really well-engineered ones come from China and shatter as they break. As you slam your elbow into the side of the transmission, a jagged shard of shattered steel rips through your left eye!

    Trouble-light. AKA drop-light, work light, etc... This instrument is equipped with numerous features such as a cord 2 inches too short to reach any available electrical outlet. Also is a useless hook on the end that is able, through magic, no matter how carefully hooked, to always rotate the light so that it illuminates no part of the car or machine being services, AND shines directly into the mechanic's eyes! Really good ones have a two million watt incandescent bulb that bakes and scalds exposed skin from 6 inches away or closer nd melts any plastic parts in the way.

    Anyone else have any we missed?

    Look me up on Facebook
