YSaC, Vol. 735: Warch it!

craftsman oil fider warch – $5


in very god sape asking 5.00 call xxx-xxx-xxxx

When you ask Uncle Google what he thinks “Craftsman oil fider warch” is, he comes back with “Showing results for Craftsman oil finder watch”. Except that there are no results for Craftsman oil finder watch either (which makes you wonder why Uncle Google bothered to search for it).

Anyway, when you search for “Craftsman oil finder watch”, the first hit is “Craftsman oil filter wrench”, so I thought to myself, “Self, that is very likely what this blurry blue thing is.” So I looked … and no, that’s not what the blurry blue thing is.

Whatever it is, it’s clearly part of an instrument from Borneo that is a deeply meaningful religious artifact of some kind. Huh. And here I just though Craftsman made secular warches.

Thanks, Charles!

[Edited to add: Okay, maybe it IS what the blurry blue thing is ... but the pictures I found looked like this and this, and you can see where I would think that those two things are not what the blurry blue thing is.]

    I think I’ve taken this test before.

    * squints at pictures*

    I see a herd of beautiful ponies roaming free across the plains.

    And an elephant on a tricycle.

    Clearly, it’s a work of surrealist art, and the white things represents the ocean, and the fan blade-looking things are BP. Of course, Sparky was so impressed that he things it is possibly either Sapient or God.

      But what represents man’s inhumanity to man? Something always represents man’s inhumanity to man.

        Man’s inhumanity to man in this work is represented by the repetitious nature of the piece. The first image, as Astro proposed, represents the destruction of our oceans by the oil drillers. The second image represents man’s destruction of natural resources the world over. The third image represents man’s inhumanity to man because the artist is abusing the viewer by pounding the point home.

        Or it’s just a glitch.

    Ahh this brings me back to Genesis 1:26-1:28

    Then God said, “Let us make the oil fider warch in our image, in our likeness, and let it rule over the tool isle of Sears and the tools section of Craigslist, let pictures of it not be taken lest they turn blurry.

    And so God created the oil fider warch in his own image. In the image of God he created it; a thing to fider his warch if he created it.

    Then God blessed it and said, “What on Earth are you even good for? Man, I must have been smoking something really good to decide that making this was a good idea. Jeez, what else did I do last night?” And thus God found the orange traffic cone he had created and then stolen the night before, and knew his night was fruitful.

    Amen, bees be upon you.

      And Lo, the fallen Angel Snap-on did see the oil fider warch, and did laugh at the folly of God on (a) high. “I shall cause there to be trucks full of very expensive warches, but not of the same durability, and Man shall be tempted by the logo and the service. Yea, my name shall replace Thy logo at Sears, and in many nations. Pass that roach, will you, boss?”

    Oh, yeah – LRC – I believe you may be mistaken about the “spider-man mask” – it is a completely understandable confusion, based on the clarity and detail of the images. However, what this really is, is one of those things. You know, one of those things that you use when you want to put things together or take them apart or hold them up on the wall – that type of thing. You can climb on them, too. Or maybe you want to break something else into little pieces – Yeah, it’s one of those, probably. Or maybe not….

        Me, too. I’m disappointed that I’m disappointed that you’re disappointed in my disappointment in the obvious level of disappointment that we all share within our disappointment. It is clearly an existentialist metaphor for (phor?) the expression “When the chicken gets tough, the tough fider warch”.

    [devil's advocate corey] Actually, if you look closely, I think you can see that black loop to the right of the silver *thingy* so it probably is an oil fider warch. [/devil's advocate corey]

    I just think Sparky got the brand name wrong (how he spelled Craftsman correctly I have no idea–but this seems to happen a lot in Sparkyville).

      I concorey with that assessment. The loop part of it slips around the oil fider, and when you turn the warch, it grips the oil fider and hopefully helps you loosen it. Then you get hot oil all over your beer box cowboy hat unless you were careful enough to place an old newspaper (make an offer!) over your head.

          I learned just about every Bad Word I know from my Mom, most during the incident when the ladder slipped and she almost fell out of the attic access panel in our old house.

          Shortly after that I learned that if you teach the Bad Words you just learned to someone in your kindergarten class, you get a very long time-out and your parents get a note from the teacher, resulting in you learning more Bad Words.

          I learned that if you smash your middle finger in the window at school and are sucking on it to make it feel better, own up to the accident.

          Otherwise, when the resident tattle tale tells the teacher you had your middle finger up and the teacher asks you why; being embarrassed and saying “I don’t know” only results in a smashed finger and a week without recess with no explanation of what you did wrong, rather than a smashed finger and a trip to the nurses office. It’ll be another 2 years before you figure out why you got in trouble.

          Similarly, pointing at things with your middle finger results in a similar situation, only without the smashed finger.

          I also learned that if an adult mimics a child he’s being childish and immature, possibly funny or cute; but if a child mimics an adult he’s got a social disability and needs to be held back a year. AND if a child doesn’t like coloring, he’s obviously stupid, as opposed to inartistic.

          My husband grew up using his middle finger to point at things since that gesture was not considered rude in his youth where he grew up. I’m sorta trying to break him of the habit simply so he doesn’t inadvertently get himself into trouble with someone looking for a fight.

          Used to work with some real, well, wits (due apologies to all wits out there).

          One morning, they distracted me after I had gotten my cup of coffee. They swapped my full cup for a matching cup, and the empty pot for the full one in the maker. Did not faze my morning-hazed brain, just made another pot of coffee and waited on it to brew.

          Which confused the conspirators, since there was a near-full pot of coffee in the cupboard, which was found by one of the sugar users in the office.

          I was ok, by that point I had two cups of coffee. Huzzah!

      One thing to learn from Vullofmerde:

      If you’ve got near limitless dark magic potential, attune yourself with people referencing you rather than your specific name. It makes it way more difficult for people escape your all encompassing vision if you don’t restrict yourself with silly conditionals.

      Evil Taco:

      “Hehe, they’re calling me He-Who-Cannot-be-Named again. It’s cute that they think I don’t know that they’re referring to me.” *Fireballs rain down*

        If I had near-omnipotent evil powers, I would change my name to something simple and anonymous like “Steve” or “Bob”. None of this “I am the Great Lord Y’Quet-Zalli, Master of Time, Space, and Dryer Lint!” business.

        You very rarely hear of people fleeing in terror from Bob, and no one runs down the street screaming “For god sape, it’s Steve! He(or She) is gonna destroy us all!”

          The other thing we learn (Something that I’ve advocated since the days when I was addicted to James Bond):

          If you absolutely must hold your arch-nemesis prisoner, he should be kept nude. And even then only after a thorough cavity search. Even if the things he has on him look innocent they should STILL be taken away.

          And if the friends of your arch-nemesis aren’t important, don’t imprison them with him; instead kill them immediately. Or at least imprison them in cells on the opposite end of your complex. They should also be kept nude after a cavity search.

          I mean jeez, what kind of a cut rate evil villain can’t spend a little extra effort making sure these things are done correctly.

          Also, in my jail the only food given to prisoners would be things you don’t need silverware to eat. Hamburgers, pizza, hot pockets, pop tarts, etc. This has the added bonus of making the prisoners obese and less likely to escape and foil my plans.

    Isn’t the warch a rare type of bird?

    It migrates over the Gulf of Mexico, so that makes it a true Oil Fider Warch. Not to be confused with the Solar Powed Warch or the Gas Fider Warch, as those have currently been removed from the government endangered species list.

    [auto repair corey] I always prefered the “cap style” oil filter wrenches, as there never seemed to be room to get the strap-style wrenches on the filters while underneath the vehicle and having the catch pan there and jack stands or ramps and the like.

    Then, they stopped taking in DIY waste oil, so it was much simpler to just go get professionals to do the work (and it was on their insurance if the drain plug was cross-threaded–made that trip too many times driving a buddy to the autoparts store 200 seconds before the store closes on Sunday to get the repair plug).

        Yeah, there are probably some things I could do myself for lower monetary cost, but the time-and-effort-and-broken-nail cost would be way higher.

      I always prefered the “cap style” oil filter wrenches, as there never seemed to be room to get the strap-style wrenches

      Yeah, strap-ons ore just not quite good enough…

    Wow, it took forever to get down here. This might be a day late, but I did a sketch of a fortune cookie that might be appropriate for Astro’s fortune. I was doodling them all day and finally sat down with a brush and some ink after supper. Hope y’all like it.

    You know it’s a good day when you start yelling at the mice behind the bookcase to be quiet and go away. ::sigh::

    I even had a friend bring over his cat to hunt them down, but they stayed behind the bookcase and she just hunkered down on the other side but couldn’t reach them.

      And now I have a tiny little mouse caught in a sticky trap. I hate those things, but the maintenance guy left it. I don’t know what to do with the poor mouse, and the others are still making noises behind the bookcase.

        Also, what is it about this time of night (or day, depending, I guess) that it gets so quiet? I’m about to go get ready for bed (I know, I know, but I have to get up early), and no one’s around for a last bit of snarking.

          I prefer mouse traps… better the loud snap than listening to them squeaking while they attempt to get themselves loose. And easier to pick up with the very long barbecue tongs for quick disposal.

          Yeah, listening to it try to shake itself loose is worse than the ones scratching away behind the bookcase.

          On that lovely note, it’s time for bed. Good night, sleep tight, and don’t get invaded by mice.

          I prefer the Mouse Traps, because it’s over quicker for them. Ever since I read Redwall, I’ve come to at least not want the mice to die a slow death on a sticky trap in the middle of the night.

          I’m usually around still, but I’ve run out of things to say. Unless you want to hear about family law. Actually, I have a couple fun quotes from the lecture that I just had to jot down for posterity…here, let’s see…

          “Prostitution is illegal. Just because you structure it as a requirements contract doesn’t change the rule.”

          “You don’t need to write these down. You’ll know what to write if you walk into the exam and the question reads, ‘John married his mother. Discuss.’”

          “It’s not a material lie if you say you’re a natural blonde, and on your wedding night, your fiancé finds out the truth.”

          “Even if you’re used to another term, try to write ‘nonmarital child’ on the exam. Don’t write, ‘I will now address the rights of the little bastard.’”

          That last is priceless. But, a person educated in latin might wonder why not just use “minor nothus” instead. Unless we are being very old fashioned and preserving inherited rights and the like.

          “Non-marital child” sounds like some sort of foundling, which would seem to require some other declaration of declare en loco parentitus, since mater semper certa est is not indicated (to my laic eye, at least).

          Capn: Apparently illegitimate has fallen out of favor now. I tend to agree with you about this “nonmarital child” idea, I’m really not sure it’s any better. Certainly does sound like a foundling.

          Two times it matters: intestacy and child support. Oh, and in Mass, if it looks like you “forgot” a child in your will (they still get something without a clear intent to disinherit here). All this fuss about terminology seems unnecessary…well, at least, now that we’re not calling them bastards.

          Fascinating conceptual fabric there, really.

          If we consider that “child” is imprecise due the staggered ages of majority and consent, and that vivende bene is a legitimate expectation, then and illegitimate child could be construed to be one with no expectation of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Which sounds tough sledding for a detached person not having achieved majority.

          Ooh, perhaps in seven days we can take up the intellectual shoals of via legis versus ad rex ergo.

    This ad could have possibly been written by the woman who is famous for her role (made much more popular on Mystery Science Theater 3000) on “Werewolf”. I will never forget her odd accent and pronunciation of “warrwilf”. Seems only logical to me that if you’re going to cast someone for a movie about werewolves, you would want someone who could actually pronounce the word. 3 cheers for MST3K, tv’s version of YSaC.

    I think I can see it. It’s like the first pic you linked, only facing the other direction. It doesn’t come out well on the black background. But why 3 pictures, from the same angle, progressively blurrier?
