Busted off oil cap

Changing oil today on my 96 4.0. Went to add oil and the oil cap top snapped off. I had to get what was left out of the oil filler neck with channel locks.

This after I forgot to open the little drain cap on my oil change container and had oil all over my driveway.

I'm an old guy so I can forget something once in a while. AAARRRGGGHHH!!

I have spilled five quarts good oil while I was changing it in the garage. That was not fun to clean up.
