OK, this is obviously a satirical look at a sale flyer from Harbor Freight Tools, but I got a kick out of it (mainly because a lot of it is true). I like the hydraulic nail bender myself yay

The most useless tools at Harbor Fright are the orange handle pliers, sold in a six pack.
The cutters on all of them won't cut anything and the slip joint pliers are just what they say. Squeeze down on something and the joint slips.

I can't decide on the Bono Glasses, or the Moron headlamp!!!

I also am having a tough time trying to stop laughing.

It's printed & going to hang in the office!!

BTW, the little LED flashlights are not that bad for something free!!

U used to think those cheap LED flashlights were pretty cool until NRA sent me a real tactical flashlight.

"On sale for four years and we still have a warehouse full!"

Gotta love it. You know you've arrived when the parodies start.

I want the cordless hammer! laugh The pneumatic whistle isn't bad either - maybe you could use it to drive morons away from a work site.

The best way to get people to leave you alone is to hand them something dirty and say "hold this for me please", then ignore them until they set it down and leave.
