It depends on what was eaten earlier that day. No, of course not @roadpavement. The oil price have never been so low. Lubricants are items of basic necessity and should be readily available, but they are not! Considering the size of batons you choose to give to the hobos near your area, not only I agree they should come pre-lubed, you also gonna give them a problem, as they will definitely require more lube. They are hobos anyway, why you would give them batons this size? A shorter version certainly would be more appropriate and I understand the metal one needs less lubricant. I just sign a petition requesting the installation of such dispensers and since you made this post I thought you should know.
