Architecture Puzzler #451
Would you rather use a "banjo" (slang) or a "bazooka" (slang) for moving a bulk load of cement off a truck?
Given the choice, I would probably want to use a "bazooka" if I had to move a load of cement. "Banjo" is a slang term for a short-handled shovel. "Bazooka" is a slang term for a portable auger used for unloading bulk concrete from trucks or freight cars. It has an unloading range of zero to 15 feet (4.6 meters).
