Springfield, MO – Famed lumberjack and North American folklore hero Paul Bunyan was extremely pissed to find his missing wrenches at Rick’s Automotive this week. According to sources, Paul rode into town on Babe the Blue Ox, saw a great sign giving temperature and time on Campbell street then realized it was being supported by two tools that he recently misplaced.
“Good Grief!”, “My Goodness” exclaimed Bunyan as he approached the larger than life signage, “I lost those wrenches years ago when I was digging the Grand Canyon while riding Babe. My axe was dragging behind me and they must have fallen out of my satchel during that bumpy patch in Colorado.” Legend says that Davy Crockett and Daniel Boone hand-welded the giant wrenches as a gift for Bunyan as a symbol of “woodsy, pioneer” friendship.
Rick’s Automotive representatives claim that the wrenches were purchased from a reputable source and dispute the gigantic woodsman’s claims. “Ah, yeah we had purchased those from a, ah…reputable source in Colora – Arizona, who manufactured them on a bet…okay fine they are Paul Bunyan’s wrenches okay!?”
After a brief conversation with the owner, Rick and Paul came to an agreement to keep the wrenches in place. “Rick’s Automotive and I share the same belief that we are defenders of the people,” said Bunyan, “therefore I have agreed to let them keep my wrenches and a 10% discount will be given to those customers who mention my name.”
