Four short stories starring nails, hammers and magnets.

1. Passionate love.
Nail climbs through а window to see Nailette. His head glows with passion and he transfers this glow to her. Then he invites her to a dance and they dance together, sensually curving. Then - a kiss, they glow red-hot, and a small little nail appears. Seeing him, Nail jumps out the window and hides.

2. Nothing good comes from asking for it
Nailette moves around Hammer for a long time, then kisses him. The hammer rises and falls on her (partly flattening her).

3. Say "no" to drunkenness
A bent nail starts a fight with other nails. A police siren sounds and a large magnet arrives, takes the bully and puts him behind bars. Only an empty vodka bottle sheds a tear for the drunkard.

4. Circus.
The circus march sounds. The Lion Tamer Nail flicks the whip and makes a large, growling nail jump over the burning hoop, then bows to the audience. But the big nail eats up the tamer and bows himself.
