OK, so it is bad enough that people can't be ar$ed to spell and punctuate correctly on the web, but on commercial products? Really?

What am I supposed to do with these plugs before I use them? Cook the fcukers? FFS!

    If you ever want to feel intellectually superior, no matter how dumb you really are, have a look on YouTube for Honey Boo Boo.

    Actually, rawl is a trade mark (think Hoover/vacuum). S technically they can call them anything they like (including raw) as long as its NOT Rawl.

    +1.
    You only need two tools: WD40 and Duck Tape.
    If it doesn't move and should, use the WD40.
    If it shouldn't move and does, use the tape.

    Raw plug returns 10 times as many Google hits as Rawl plug as well, so not only is it technically correct it's a far more common term!
