State Tool

Every state has a state flower, state bird, etc. Why not a state tool?

This came to me in a dream. Literally.

Every state should have its own state tool. Please feel free to provide suggestions. I will begin by nominating the miniature eyeglass screwdriver as the state tool of Florida.

Halfbakers, take it away!

       This is totally baked, practically every state of the union has a long list of goofy official state this-or-thats. I posted links to the ones for Massachusetts and Georgia. Plus an apparently tongue-in-cheek one for New Mexico.

       From the title I thought this was a way for programmers to deal with interruptions in their work.

       Half a housebrick, and a screwdriver, unless its something to do with computers, then its just the housebrick....

       I gave up bothering with that sort of subtlety years ago.
