Pretty funny. I wonder if anyone looked at their keys/wrenches to try to figure out if they had the wrong one.

It's still gauche.

Nathan, you're right, it was a spoof on Allen (as in wrench), and it went right over my head too until you flagged it. Thank God somebody's on the ball around here. Nicely done.

Alien key?

Try "allen key".

Unless it was intentional and supposed to be a joke, in which case it went right over my head.

(Wouldn't be the first time, amirite?)
