Gulliver's Crowbar


Even big guys have needs.

From the website:

    The 58" Big Boy Pry Bar

    Everyone needs a Big Boy Pry Bar lying around the garage!

    Order one today — I'll guarantee it will get you out of a tough situation in the near future.

    At 58" in overall length, the leverage is phenomenal.

    The tip has a tapered foot to get under anything to get leverage and lift it out of the way.

    Hardened, tempered steel shaft with a solid metal end so you can hit it with a hammer!

    Overload the pry bar?

    It will bend before it breaks.

    Use it to get the Mother-in-Law off the couch?

    Who am I to say no?


I just went down to the basement to measure my crowbar: it's 33" long.

And indeed I've found it invaluable about once a year for odd jobs.

I'm very tempted.

The Big Boy costs $99.99.

Bizarre advert for that thing. I'm trying to figure out the situation between the guy and the enormously-bosomed female with the Marge Simpson hairdo. He points to the crowbar with malicious glee then uses it to prise Marge off the (his?) flat rolling thingy, much, obviously, to her dismay and his wild and unbridled delight. "Gulliver's Crowbar" would indicate proportions, but it's still strange. What is their relationship? Has she usurped his right to recline on his roller? Maybe she was performing vehicle repairs and had a legitimate reason. And perhaps, as richard indicated above, this tool is not meant for "real work" and is in fact a cartoon tool - hence "Marge" reclining. I will admit I could possibly be over"thinking" this thing.

You can get a rock bar, made for real work, for about 1/2 what this thing costs.
