Hey. Hey YOU! Yeah, the one without pants on! Have you ever sat around your home and... what's that? You're what? A hobo?
Yeah, keep moving then, buddy. And stop staring at me like that... you're being a hobo creeper.
What about YOU! You there, sitting inside your nice home! Have you ever sat in your living room, staring at the wall, and wondering, "If I ever actually do something successful in life and get a plaque for my accomplishment, it would be great if there was an overpriced but effective wall hanging device that would leave only a pin-sized hole in the wall and would be easy to use. And would remind me of a mythical hero."
Then I've got the product for you: Hercules Hooks!
Using this steel-hard rod, just penetrate, turn and...Whoa, whoa! This is a family infomercial. What I mean is, just stab it into the wall, twist the hook and you've got a hanger that can handle just about anything. Just look at what you can hang:
Artwork: In just seconds, you can hang multiple frames. In just minutes following, you can realize you don't like that arrangement and need to change it. In just hours following, you can look at your legs and wonder if one is longer than the other because for the love of Peter Paul and Mary, you can't hang anything straight. In just seconds following, you can straighten all the pictures and stop being so freaking O.C.D.
Awards: Kate Winslet uses Hercules Hooks to secure all of her trophies to the wall. Well, no she doesn't, but she could. Although if Kate did this, she'd do it topless.
Hookers: Hookers Hooked on Hercules Hooks. Alliteration and fun for the whole family! Keep those streetwalkers in a convenient spot by the door, in the garage, in your closet while the missus is home... anything!
Witches: Why waste good rope at the town witch hunt, when you can hang any woman 150 pounds and lighter* on a Hercules Hook while you burn them alive for their supposed black magic, which was actually just them using THE AMAZING OXICLEAN... but I digress.
Pets: Ever get tired of your pet running around all the time? Ever think it would be freaking awesome to hang them on the wall? Ever wonder if the authorities would see this photo, think I actually did this, and take away Bailey from me for animal abuse? Cause I did. And no, I didn't hang Bailey by his harness, technically speaking. But I could, and so could you!
* Fat witches might need two Hercules Hooks. And a really sturdy broom.
Actual Review: For an apartment dweller, these really do help, as they only leave a small hole, and they won't strip paint like some other hooks. You can't use them on a concrete wall, etc., but for drywall, it works great. Four out of five stars.
