  1. I considered buying some of the pink swag just to have some distinctive looking tools, but it doesn’t seem to have the good sales. A friend of mine buys it because it amuses her, and I expect she has more grip strength than me and thee. I think there used to be a usenet group (remember usenet?) called something like alt.fan.power.tools.pink.

        1. Perhaps you can regard that as going to a Good Cause… and scratch him off your gift list. [grin]

  2. Pink tools? Ahh, the power of pink. My last shock came from discovering pink link’n’logs. Now girls can build too. Maybe they even got some STEM funding for that stunt… What’s next? (Oh the humanity.)

  3. “tough tiger pink” is what Jughead called a pink scooter in an ancient comic!
