Arthur, do a buttonhook up the right sideline. Hokay. But...what is? A buttonhook? It's when you run ten yards up the field, then turn around! Ah! Yes! Where is word "buttonhook" comes from? No idea. Is some kind of TOOL or something, probable! Maybe, I dunno. But...hmm...what for would someone need a HOOK for buttoning buttons? Who CARES? Ah! Maybe hook is actual for MAKE buttons! Like in button factory, for examples, maybe hooks are- JUST RUN THE STINKIN' BUTTONHOOK! So much for the element of surprise! HIKE.
