Any other CSI junkies out there who watched last night's episode?

I loved it when they open the trunk of the Mercedes to find the body and 
the bloody murder weapon.  They pull out the weapon, a crow bar, and 
call it a "Tire Iron".  If you put a crow bar in a trunk, does it 
magically become a tire iron?  It's also referred to as that a couple of

I realize today's TV script writers are probably far too young to have 
ever seen an actual, real life tire iron.  However, I would have hoped 
at least one of the editors or "older" actors would have caught the 

Oh well, I guess I'm just totally dating myself, having actually changed 
tires by hand with tire irons.
