Kids 'Bat Rope' Grappling Hook versus Sony Walkman Earbud

Don't know about you. But I recall that, when I was a kid, I was
always frustrated with my "Bat Rope". The sexy little plastic
grappling hook at the end of the rope was totally useless. It would
never grapple onto anything. Trees, Sheds, Lorrys, Fences, all

Now contrast that to the earbuds that come on your headset for your
mobile phone/iPod/Sony Walkman. If I take that earbud out for a
second to go into; a store, the car, work, whatever, that
little fucker manages to get itself grappled onto the flattest,
smoothest, most polished of chrome surface imaginable.

The number of times my left ear has been yanked into the car window
because the right earbud was out and decided to mate with my seat
belt, it's unreal.

It's so annoying. But I guess it answers the question of a ten
year old boy. "How come batman never has trouble with his grappling
hook" Obviously his was made by Sony, not Mattel.
