Cool Mickey Mouse Tools..!!

It just now occured to me, that in one of my first posts re changing the belts on my 944, I referred to the ring gear lock and the timing gear holder as Mickey Mouse tools and SoCal took offense to my use of this term - it made me wonder at the time, and now I just realized why - in Australia, when you see a tool like the ring gear lock for instance, you look at it and say, "Wow, what a Mickey Mouse tool that is"!, meaning a good thing. I FORGOT that here in the States that it means the opposite!
Sorry Hugh! My Bad.
Just wanted to clear the air on that one.

Just make sure you don't step outside to have a fag...





Not that there is anything wrong with that!

And if you make a mistake with your pencil, we use an eraser (not a rubber) to make it disappear! We use a rubber to....

...Oh, nevermind, I may have to ban myself!
