Lloyd’s office, for all its grandeur, didn’t have a place to hang his coat. He’d just throw it on the floor behind the door, the cretin. One of the things I bought at IKEA was a super-cool folding hook for him. Very modern, very sleek, very cool ….. so of course I hung it on the back of the door… and it’s crooked.


(That’s sarcasm.)

It's all slanty-angled like a cool t.v show!

It’ll hold his coat, though, and that’s all that matters.

May I take your coat, sir?

I have two more. Where am I going to badly hang them?

    You should hang them in the back window of your truck. They’d make a very fashionable gun rack.

    It’s a really cool hook, and it’s in the place where it is least likely to be noticed. I think that means I’m a hipster.

    i bought a pack of these last time i was at IKEA too! still in the package, but i have big plans. gonna get a 2′ long 1x4, stain it mahogany, put all 3 hooks on it and then attach it to the wall next to the coat rack. hooks for more coats!

    Dear Brad,

    Please send two packs of hooks. Because I love them.

    Is it solid enough to hang up and hold a 60 lb kid by the back of the collar when he/she gets unruly? If so, I will take 2!
