PItchforks, Torches, Tar and Feathers.
Decisions, decisions. I may be joining a few people for a trip to Washington DC soon and was wondering whether I should take one of these four tine pitchforks:
Or this nine tine beauty:
I suppose the nine tine would be more likely to jam on a rib. I'm thinking I'd best go with the four tine. Does anyone with a little more experience with these outings have any advice?
I also need to research tar (low or high viscosity?), feathers (or goose down, and what sort of loft), and to complete my packing list, torches.
