Note To JOAT: Astronauts Paint Their Tools Too

I were at the Franklin Institute today and saw a display of used Astronaut's Tools. The damned hammer had orange paint on it. Of course I immediately thought of JOAT.
They also showed a tool with a Borg joke on it.
Sorry for the picture quality. Only had the camera on the PDA, which sucks.

Thanks for the photos. That torque wrench looks just like the one I bought from HF. Heh heh.

I have to wonder how splotches of orange paint got on the hammer. I can imagine how this might happen in my shop but I wouldn't expect 'extra' puddles of paint lying around on any of the spacecraft.

I am appalled you would have thought of me. I feel defamed. You know I only paint my tools yellow.
Strange, I see people saying they saw your post there, but it's not there for me. Discrimination? I'll have to check again later.
I also saw a lot of spam over there, much more than I recall happening. Have people stopped reporting those little twits? I admit, reporting them doesn't have a lot of effect, but every once in awhile one is nailed. I think the more people that report one of those little no-lifes, the more apt their server is to drop them.

I reckon that astronaut woulda painted his yellow too, 'cept for the moon being made of cheese and all sose it woulda blended in too much, don'tchaknow.
I figger the one astronaut got pissed off at the other astronauts leaving his hammer out lying around and decided to spray a little orange paint onnit.
D'ya think they got pegboard onna spaceship with outlines fer the tools sose the astronauts know when they're missing?
Mebbe not.
