In terms of its variety of uses, apparently WD-40 is the new duct tape:
- Removes tar from feet
- Protects arrowheads from corrosion
- Removes duct tape (well, there ya go, it's all part of the plan)
- Unsticks stuck boat horn
- Protects vintage steam equipment on paddlewheel steam boats
- Lubricates hinges on skunk racing box (is the skunk racing, or the box??)
- Cleans peanut butter from shoestrings
- Shines seashells (oh, the clams will be so happy!)
- Lubricates power injecting device strung from the ceiling in Cardiac Catheterization Lab
- Spray on balcony to keep pigeons away
- Cleans remote controls
- Frees stuck Lego blocks
- Lubricates robot joints
- Cleans gum from chicken feathers
- Keeps missile silo doors swinging freely
- Cleans and protects handcuffs
- Lubricates fingers stuck in hole (hopefully not in the missile silo door)
- Removes gum from flagpoles
- Removes melted plastic from toaster oven
- Removes squeak from dental chairs (the better to hear the drill, my dear)
If you're really gung-ho about WD-40, you can join the fan club! (As Dave Barry would say, I'm not making this up.) I wonder what the cheer would be...
Give me a W!
Give me a D!
Give me a 40!
Hmmm, loses something in the translation.
