Reply to "Stretched Clutch Cable????"

I LOVE this question!

I work with racing shells (rowing) on the side. In the rowing world, the shells have wing nuts under the deck to hold the tracks on. They're often tough to get to so some individual came up with a wooden dowel with a slot cut in the head of it so you could reach under, jamb it onto the the wing nut and loosen/tighten -it became known as a "woody". No, I'm not making this up.

I was at a regatta once where I was on one end of an men's eight (approx 55' long) and my buddy was on the other. We were prepping it for the next race. Along came the head coach, tall slender, good looking woman. She looked at my buddy "Terry, do you have a woody?" Well, I buried my head in the hull but my buddy could see me loosing it. He replied "Not now Lizzy, may be later." She stomped off leaving both of us with tears in our eyes.
