Me, I'm waiting for the punchline!
Could it be similar to a Henway?

Sure it's not a wall jack? Instead of a Wombat.

Wall jacks are for lifting walls where there built laying down.

Google Wall jack and see.

Wombats hate to roll over, only way wombat breeders can sex the herd is jack um up and look.

Wombat Jack, one of your lesser known, less succesful, less scary outback highway men

Gotta watch them fellas em11. They'll tell ya anything for a sale.

'Wombat Jack' For jackin' up blokes trucks. Thats why it's rusty, has a big mouth and a long pole (wishfull thinking)

As opposed to a "Wombat Jill'. For women. Shiny with nice, even little cogs and a sequined covered handle.

Oh and em11?
I've never 'bort a tool'.
Mostly we marry them.
Mostly the rusty ones.

We don't need to waste our money on 'buying' one.
They are mean't to waste their money on us
