time to buy a gong

Because we are now well equipped to keep it clean.


Seriously, I never knew that this common kind of scrubbing brush, with its squarish head and straight or slightly curved handle, is properly known as a “gong brush”.


A full fifteen minutes of serious Googling were insufficient to uncover the story behind this interesting name.  I wouldn’t think that gongs need too much scrubbing- once over with a microfiber rag and the occasional polishing should be sufficient.  This gong brush is designed for heavier duty. 


For messes at a distance (or extra long gongs), try the Extra Long Gong Brush.

    Or if you need to clean up after a particularly messy table tennis match in a former Far East British colony between members of a peaceful Chinese religious sect, sponsored by a Chinese-American character actor, a controversial American woman writer, and a Futurama character, where the spectators smoked hookahs while church bells ring forever and you need an extra-extra big size, try the new and improved extra-long Hong Kong Falun Gong ping pong long song ding dong big bong James Hong / Erica Jong / Amy Wong King Kong gong brush.

    I think we all should just sit back for a moment and contemplate the effort that went into the nest of rhyming puns that is this comment. Seriously, Wolfie. Good job. I am no good at puns myself, but I recognize near genius when I see it.

    Wolf, that’s just wrong.

    Ah, I see you missed the point.

    I topped your list, both large and long, with a single word, bold and strong.
    Your head I guess I need to klong with a solid tool, like a pair of tongs.
    When the tongs are back where they belong, I’ll smile and wave at the admiring throng.
    You also missed “Mekong” and “prong”. That’s all, everybody move along.
