Best. Shovel. Ever.

6 05 2010

If it’s not the best shovel ever, it’s certainly the shovel with the best PR.  I saw this at Ace of Spades and thought it was the most incredible thing ever.

Watch and be amazed at the might and ingenuity of the Chinese Military.

Yes, this shovel can do everything. And I mean everything. True, it can be used as…a shovel.  But it can also be used as a pick!  And a saw!  And a grappling hook!  And a shield!  And an oar (if you happen to have two shovels and an inflatable boat).  And a can/bottle opener.  And a precision culinary instrument.  And a shield used to fend off attackers.

Unfortunately, this awesome shovel is showcased in a lengthy video, so you have to skip around to get to the good bits.  Or watch the whole thing—the background music, which is apparently from Silverado, for some reason unknown to me, pretty much makes the whole thing work.

Be very, very afraid of the Chinese.  Give the worlds largest military some of these shovels and the proper training, and they won’t even need guns.  Or saws.  Or picks.  Or oars.  Or bottle openers.  I’ve got to have one.

How do you find these things?!?!?
Just what I want to do, dig a ditch and slice a potato with the same implement.
