Get it? It’s a joke. A pun. Knot easy is a pun. A pun is just like a joke, only not funny. Knot funny, if you will.
Do you know who never used puns? Men who gnu how to tie knots. I mean, knew how to tie knots. Sailors who did more than enter regattas. Painters, carpenters, and window washers who needed to set up rigging for planks when hanging off the side of tall structures. Believe you me, if your life depended on the quality of your knots, you’d learn more than the “tie your shoes” knot.
I knew I would love this car the moment I saw a bungie cord peeking out of the front grill in the opening scene. Duct tape is for amateurs and girls. Bungie cords are made entirely from testosterone and awesomeness.
You know you’re dealing with great mechanics because their garage is cleaner than your toaster oven, and their hands are cleaner than the fry cook’s at McDonald’s.
We all know a “Hey Tyler” at work. Tyler’s a good guy, but he’s a little slow on the uptake. He’s eager to help, but his eagerness makes him help without thinking about what he’s doing first. Tyler’s honest, and like most honest people, he doesn’t spot dishonesty in others right away, even the prank brand of dishonesty.
Of course if I tried this, my shins would look like James Bond’s bedpost in no time. But these dudes know how to use an axe properly. Knowing is half the battle. The other half is knowing how to sharpen axes. The chopping is just busy work after that.
Dude rocks. Sheetrocks, that is. If you’re unfamiliar with actual men, this is how they behave. They learn by watching and then doing, and then they show others. They take pride in even mundane chores. They are physically fit from useful activity, not going to the gym. They are no-nonsense.
