In the latest Captain America the baddies use ice axes embedded in car roofs to abseil off a bridge.

1. Reckon you could penetrate a roof that easily?
2. Do you think it'd hold?
3. Titan pick for strength or Laser for penetration? ;-)

Do you like that bit in Diamonds Are Forever where Bond infiltrates Willard White's top floor lair by firing some sort of aid-climbing piton from a mini-harpoon and it embeds itself in concrete? Makes the Cliffhanger bolt gun look like documentary stuff ;-)

I think I could get an axe through a car roof and if it was loaded in the right direction it would probably hold. I wouldnt like to try it.

I'd like to try it on Rio Ferdinands covertable Aston Martin while he was still in the drivers seat

> covertable

Does that count as an eggcorn or a Malapropism, or neither?
