Tim Allen & Tool Time had it Right from the Beginning

bikini model tools Tim Allen & Tool Time had it Right from the Beginning
According to a recent study by Susan Fiske, professor of psychology at Princeton University, when men view photos of women in bikinis it stimulates the same area of the brain that men use for handling tools and performing actions.
Our conclusion is that Tim Allen was right from the beginning and Tool Time which always featured a scantily clad “Tool Girl”, most notably Pam Anderson, was the first public acknowledgement that there is a definitive link between women in daisy dukes and tools. This study also seems to state the obvious as most male owned tool shops have a Snap-On Tools or Sports Illustrated calendar proudly displayed somewhere.
