    LESLIE: Alright, now we’ve got Mark on the line from Missouri who’s calling for I really think just a way to use a sledgehammer. (Tom and Leslie chuckle) What’s going on?

    MARK: Well, I had to take three layers of brick out of my basement where there was a wood-burning stove on top of and the guy that put it in actually slugged every hole in the brick.
    TOM: Right.
    MARK: So I was wondering if there was just an easier way to take that out than a pneumatic hammer and a sledgehammer.
    TOM: Now where is the brick right now?
    MARK: Oh, I already have it out. I was just wondering if there’s an easier way because my dad’s got to take out a chimney next and …
    TOM: Yeah. There’s nothing easy about removing brick. (Leslie chuckles)
    MARK: Yeah, that’s what I thought.
    TOM: And as you’ve discovered, there’s no way to peel it off the wall. I think using the pneumatic hammer and the sledgehammer was probably the best thing that you could do. There’s just no easy way to get rid of that stuff.
