Just mind boggling.   That said, will you convert? 

H/T to Choosing Raw c/o This Is Life In Austin for this revelation.  And to Banana Bunker, just because.

    That’s how we’ve done it since we were kids! My stepdad showed us the way long long ago!

    Been doing it that way quite a while. Plus the stem makes a nice handle this way.
