Everyone should have plenty of "Round Tuitts" in their desk drawer. They're so handy when you ask a colleague when his part of the project will be completed and he answers: "When I get around to it."

Don't know why it took me so long to think of this.  You've got to have a can of Magic Smoke so you can spray it back into components to make them work again.

@Rcurl: I know these are supposed to be fictious items, but it just dawned on me...

We could always make one of our cans "Marvelous Mystery Oil"

@sixscrews: OK - here are my suggestions...

I like #4, I love #6 .... not so sure about #5

If we get more and more suggestions, we can always add more cans to our hypothetical rack...

Well, I know these are supposed to be fictious items, but it just dawned on me that a can of Marvel Mystery Oil would fit right in. Every time I changed the oil in my old Aerostar van I added a few ounces of the stuff.  I gave the van away four years ago with 400,000 miles on the original engine...and it's still running today.

 

If you're not familiar with this mysterious concoction, look here: http://www.marvelmysteryoil.com/

 

By the way, here's what's in it: The product is composed of 74 percent mineral oil, 25 percent stoddard solvent, and 1 percent lard.
