a: Wd-40 ~
b: a psycho ex-girlfriend

What: "WD-40 is like a psycho ex-girlfriend, She is great while you are using her, but when you stop, she lets your parts dry up and rust away. Then when you think she is gone she bubbles back up, usually when it cost you the most.".....The rest is a discussion of the pro and cons of WD-40, a common theme of mechanic discussions. The girlfriend part is the funny comment.
