Place nut on anvil, and step back to a safe distance.
Put on safety glasses.
Press button to release poised sledge hammer, which bounces back into position after one blow.
Start picking, scraping and separating edible nut remains from surface of anvil. (this may take some time)
Clear shell fragments from surface.
Eat nut components as a reward.
Clean face of hammer ready for next nut.

       Clean the hammer? All this time, I knew I was omitting a crucial step.

       So, basically, a hammer?

       An exercise in understanding.

       When the shell-side's on the outside
(Which, for nuts, would be the right side)
Then the meat-side's on the inside,
(It's the inside that's the eat-side).

If the meat-side were the outside,
And the shell-side were the inside,
Then we'd eat it and be satisfied,
And spit the pit out on the plate-side.
  

       But the shell-side's on the outside,
And, unless it's on the thin side,
Then the means to reach the inside,
Are ingeniously diversified.

       Scientist, humanitarian, and poet. [The Alterother] is outdone.   

       Again.

       You're a coyote? Clever dog - but down boy - we don't like that!

       ...I'm tempted to post "Schrödinger's nutcracker"

       Frankly, I'm surprised it took this long for someone to think of that.
Alterother, Mar 09 2012
  

       Funny, I was just explaining the Schro-cat thing to my sweetheart, and attempting to diplomatically determine if she'd drank all the beer in the house.   

       Which led me to Schrödinger's beer - until you look in the refrigerator, you just don't know.
