Holes in bottoms of kitchen drawers

Defeat the Goddess Anoia - usually
  [vote for,

Completely baked in our kitchen: I've drilled two 1/8" holes in the bottom of each drawer, a few inches apart, near the front. Now if anything gets stuck in a drawer, I can open the drawer below that one and shove a stick up its bottom to move whatever was causing the problem.

Unless it's in the bottom drawer, where Anoia still reigns.

Goddess of Things That Get Stuck in Drawers [a1, Jan 12 2022]


       We have a hole in one of our kitchen drawers that consists of the entire bottom. Nothing gets stuck in that one. Nor does anything stay in it. [+].

       The only reason your drawers open is because Anoia the Goddess of Things That Get Stuck in Drawers is lost in the fourth dimension, together with all your other lost stuff until they suddenly re-appear back exactly where they were, seemingly the whole time (because the 3 dimensions are still the same).   

       Science is still baffled by this phenomenon, but knows that solving this anomaly will necessarily cause all drawers (that don't have holes in them yet, since the word hasn't gotten out yet) to become stuck.

       What if the bottom draw is stuck?

       In the bottom drawer, Anoia still reigns.

       You could have an extra drawer fitted beneath the bottom one.

       You can’t fool me - it’s turtles all the way down.

       I think with a bit of word play, this how toilet seats were invented. ie bottoms on holes of kitchen drawers.

       She prefers to think of it as ruling, the other word reminds her too much of what happened to her lava, which upsets her.

       Incidentally, I have just discovered the Disk has a god of custard, likely worshipped by early half bakers I suspect, though I've not seen many 'prayers' (aka custard based ideas cunningly clothed in the guise of a non newtonian fluid) to him here of late so he may be in danger of becoming a small god, Nog- Humpty.

       But is Nog-Humpty a god who dreams of being a custard, or a custard that dreams of being a god?
