Get a brass tack or a long metal nail. Hold it in the jaws of a pair of
needle-nosed pliers. Bend the nail until you can touch the widget. Remove
the nail from inside the box. Heat with a blowtorch until cherry red.
Stuff nail back into hole until smell of molten nylon burnt the surface
coating off of your eyes. Allow to cool. Remove widget which is melted
firmly onto nail. Buy new Widget. Remove gearbox, as that is the only way
to get the new Widget in. Curse loudly and at great length. Sell car. Buy
Nissan Cedric or similarly bland Rice Burner. Develop a taste for C&W
music, line dancing and grocery shopping. Marry ugly, but predictable,
girl. Produce 2.4 children. Grow beard. Take great interest in Gore/Bush
politics. Unsubscribe from this list and join Chess club. Learn all about
pensions and investments...
S***, that reminds me. I was meant to phone my brother. Gotta go!
