    This is a great idea. The description says "You will always need one for emergency happen and it will be your great helper, too!" they probably should have proof read that.

    Oh the luxury for Mr Ork.
    I can only dream of coming home to such conversation!

    Yes, it must be really something to come home after a long day's work to find that you have a choice between takeout and rewiring the kitchen then & there.

    You couldn't make this stuff up. People have been poking fun at Hitler since before he became Chancellor of Germany but this is the 21st Century and we aren't permitted to poke fun at villains for fear of making them appear less villainous.

    Wasn't Adolf a housepainter? He must have had a toolbox?

    I thought he was more of a postcard painter. Mind you, if he'd been a housepainter you could imagine the rants he'd get into whilst describing how to remove old inferior paint before replacing it with pure Aryan red, white, and black.

    I would laugh but it is not permitted by the Ministry of Sourpusses.

    Viennese hausfrau c.1921: "Well yes, the painting has been very thoroughly executed Mr Hitler - I can't fault it. However I'm not sure that this erm... unique.... crooked cross motif is best suited to the play room..."

    I am now so posh that I am being advertised a better class of tool:

    In the world of the tool belt that can accommodate a wrench, several screwdrivers, several pairs of pliers and a knife.

    Who wants to carry all that gummidge around their hips?
