Whenever I'm in the process of fixing something or building something, people keep telling me all it needs is some elbow grease to fix a problem I am having. Although I'm not sure where to buy this 'elbow grease'. Can anyone tell me where I can buy it? I live in Los Angeles, California.

I think there is a plume of it emitted by the La Brea Tar Pits. – bib Jul 9 '14 at 13:03
There is room for humor on this site, I hope and pray??? DIY can be disheartening at times and having something for a grin once in a while is kind of nice. – Fiasco Labs Jul 9 '14 at 14:53
The close reason makes this hilarious. – Mazura Sep 26 '15 at 1:14

Elbow grease™ can be found in the Shake a Leg store.

I can't seem to find where that store is on Google Maps? – george Jul 9 '14 at 8:51
@george: Please follow my link. (Elbow grease is a euphemism.) – wallyk Jul 9 '14 at 8:55
@george, you're either incredibly dense and really need help (and I don't think this is the case), or trolling (trawling?) hard-working men and women on this site to score imaginary internet points. If it's the latter, please stop - it's not very funny at all. And just in case it's the former, please follow the links and advise that people provide, and you'll be helped. – alt Jul 9 '14 at 12:15
Where they also carry Flight Line, Prop Wash and Muffler Bearings. We regularly send our newest recruits down to our local "Shake a Leg" store for the experience of collecting parts from our local jobber. – Fiasco Labs Jul 9 '14 at 14:51
