Anvils are Classic?

This is something I've been working on when I have down time. For long time viewers, you may notice that this is very similar to my Weight Lift assignment from second year. What can I say, I like the character and I like the idea. I'm curious what started the whole anvil thing and all Wikipedia could tell me is that it is "the epitome of a heavy and clumsy object". I've seen other things used, but the anvil seems to be the mainstay of heavy dropped things. Why not a rock? Rocks seem big and heavy and much easier to come by. I suppose rocks are kinda hard to draw, but so are anvils. Something to think about. Here's the Youtube link so you can watch it big-like. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bOtgFKfxuRI
