a pointed tool for marking surfaces or for punching small holes
"Truly, sir, all that I live by is with the awl... I am, indeed, sir, a surgeon to old shoes; when they are in great danger, I recover them."

The biggest tool of them all. Because it's the most useless tool in the toolbox.

a law that states when you "make up a guy to get mad at" that guy really does exist
I made up a person who got mad at people who are in relationships with people that like cartoons because it makes them child coded. And then I saw a tweet saying this very same thing in earnest the next day. Another classic example of Awls Law in action.
