Just to add a couple more to the list:
Left Handed Monkey Wrench
Five Gallons of Sail Boat Fuel
In the Navy we used to send annoying boots in search of things like
twenty feet of water line or Relative Bearing Grease. One day this
REALLY annoying boot actually came back with a can of grease made by the
Relative Bearing Company. Still have no idea where he came up with it
but we had to give him credit for it.
