Tool: (noun)

1.) A guy with a hugely over-inflated ego, who in an attempt to get un-due attention for himself, will act like a jackass, because, in his deluded state, he will think it's going to make him look cool, or make others want to be like him. The person may even insincerely apologize later on, but only in an attempt to get more attention, or to excuse his blatantly intentional, and unrepentantly tool-ish behavior.

2.) Someone whose ego FAR exceeds his talent, intelligence, and likeability. But, of course, he is clueless regarding that fact. He erroneously thinks he is THE MAN!

3.) Someone who others normally refer to as a prick, dick, or schmuck.

4.) Someone who acts like a dick, because...well...he's compensating.

5.) Kanye West

Observer #1: Hey, did you see Kanye West's idiotic stunt at the awards show?

Observer #2: Oh, you mean, "Mr. It's-All-About Me?"

Observer #1: Yeah...what an asshole.

Observer #2: I know. He's such a tool!

That guy who makes us shake our head in disbelief but at the same time makes us feel better about ourselves since we are not him.

An individual who behaves in their own self interest rather than adhering to a set of beliefs or morals. Someone who will act as though to seek approval on the outside, but is actually quite vain and selfish. Men of this variety tend to cheat on their girlfriends. Women tend to use men to obtain free drinks.
God, Brett is such a tool.

My, and a whole wack of others favorite band.
An awesome band who redefined many genres, and made many bands look like crap. Lead singer also in A Perfect Circle, another awesome band.

Its true about not being able to compare tool and apc AT ALL, but i do find this quote quite humorous:
"hey, listen to this A Perfect Circle record, its like tool without the anal sex"
~Who ever wrote that is awesome, although I completely disagree, but its still funny.
This unbelievable band consists of:
Adam Jones on guitar,
Danny Carey on drums,
Justin Chancellor on bass,
Maynard Keenan for vocals

"Oh my god!! Tool is definitly the (or one of) best band(s) of all time!!!"
"Most Emo should die. Along with every 'nu metal' band that is destroying the music industry. Oh, pop can be removed too."
"Half the population of tool lovers also love Nine Inch Nails, and A Perfect Circle, but they're not for everyone"

1. Something that is used to assist with the modification of an object or situation.

2. Something that is used to create or destroy.

3. Slang synonym for the males sexual reproduction whatsit.

4. Someone who does seemingly silly things; often used as a term of endearment, but not always!
I am a tool because I have been used to:
Improve someones ego;
Distract them from the mediocrity of their own existance;
Make someone else jealous;
To improve someones elses relationship (how bizarre);
To get them a valentines day present (this year)

For love.
For happiness.
For laughter.

To do everything for them, and in return:
To accept all of the guilt.
To hold all of the pain.
To take all of the blame.
(It was never a game).

A good tradesman respects his tools!!

A Hammer is a tool both used to create and to destroy.

My penis is a somewhat rusty tool I must admit (only from lack of use!!).

I hit my penis with a hammer while making pancakes (as you do)
That sure modified the fuck out of both the objects involved and the situation:
I created a lot of pain
I destroyed the pancake batter (all over the floor), and my willy - must admit i chipped a bit off of the hammer handle too!!

I hit my tool with a tool; I am such a tool

I do not regret being a tool - my penis however has a somewhat different (slanted) view on the subject

Get a Tool mug for your mate Beatrix.
(n.) - an individual who willingly changes his or her behavior for personal gain or profit. In this context, a tool is similar to a poser, with one important distinction. Because a tool does not consider his actions beyond rudimentary cost/benefit analysis, he or she will often be co-opted by corporations or powerful interest groups to support the lame or corrupt positions held by these organizations. A tool therefore, is quite literally an instrument of the man.
