Tools Names Overlap

Suppose someone were promised a free washer in exchange for some work or as the prize in a contest. Wouldn't it be shocking if someone were then handed, as a prize, a small roundish object that fits onto a bolt? How about if someone were promised a plane? Doesn't that conjure up the image of a jet or an antique flier? Yet what if, upon receipt of the award, the winner were to be completely shocked that a plane can also be a woodworking tool? Unless they get it in writing specifically, could such a mixup be possible?

Or one lucky winner could even receive it ALL. Or is it awl?

That's your idea for today. No copyrights here! Forward writers!
