I'm not sure we wanted to know that...

Thank you. You need at leats one reply that assumes something is rude before you can explain that it isn't. :-)

Take a ( heavy ) closed ended tube with two handles and fit it over the post you are trying to put in the ground.

Lift and drop said tube. Post will be forced into the soil and the impact of the wood on the end of the tube will produce a 'Bonk!' noise.

The tool is therefore called a 'Bonker' and using it is called 'Bonking'.
