WE ARE PREPARING TO MOVE GOING THRU OUR STUFF: THIS IS A SNAP ON WRENCH OEX -28 7/8″ 12 POINT 12 INCH LONG. ASKING $20.00 CASH ONLY PLEASE. IF INTERESTED GIVE US A CALL WE LIVE IN TOWN IN [Location]. ### Number Number Number ####.

Say, Betina, why don’t we sell your daddy’s tools and get the money for snacks when we move?

Oswald, that’s a swell idea. How much is his wrench worth?

Mebbe $20. It is Snap-On, says so right there.

Be sure to take enough pictures to prove it’s worth the price.

Oswald (mumbling) 5 goes into 20 4 times. That ought to do it. How about this hammer?

Thanks, OMV, for this find and the title. If this Sparky put as much energy into the rest of his life as he did for this CL ad, he’d be a brazillionaire by now.

  1. Rufruf, oh, how hated his slave-name, but not so much as riding in the deathtrap the two-legs insisted on operating. And repairing themselves, in an ever-decreasing spiral of effectiveness.

    But, now, he had a Plan. If he could sell the tools the two-legs “used” they’d have to stop their ill-advised machinations. (“Machination” was such a good dog word, chewy, like a kong filled with crunchy peanut butter.)

  2. This particular Sparky had several ads. One for each tool he was selling. Apparently couldn’t make one ad for various tools. Sparky believes, like cars, the parts are worth more than the whole.
