    an aerosol can; (and if you want me to include my comedy improv background, I'd have to equate 'not allowed' to cannot/impossible) and say something like "a yardstick," or "a fart."  lol
    For I can see in my mind's eye a performance exchange of someone coming along with a yardstick and commanding someone else to "take this thing apart and see how it works."  (This would probably be a spoof on stereotypical military boot camp pointless assigned tasks.)
