How does one insert their radioactive pasta bake dish? Dare I say it, sounds like a recipe for lasagne.

There's a sliding tray to one side, similar to one of those ones they use to deliver messages to Hannibal Lecter, without being eaten.

Or at the petrol station to deliver crisps and rizlas to punters after dark. Without being... eaten?
-- theleopard, Jan 19 2007


One of those ones.

And how did [hippo] get hold of the family album?

Good for home births too.

Last time I washed dishes I got severely contaminated, so I am placing an order for one of these now. Is there a conveyer belt attachment so clothes that need washed can be continuously fed through as well? A natural +

The last time I washed dishes I sliced my hand open with a cracked pint glass. 18 stitches friends. 18. With 4 of them internal. I didn't even know they did internal stitches! And it's such a lame story for such a nasty looking scar.
-- theleopard, Jan 19 2007

Just don't tell the whole story:

Wide Eyed Pub Bimbo: "How did you get that scar on your hand?"

Lounge Leopard: "Broken pint glass, baby. Messy situation. Don't want to talk about it now. Maybe over breakfast."
-- Galbinus_Caeli, Jan 19 2007

tell them it was a slippery situation.....you were separating "Mick the bread-knife", from "Mackers the pan Scraper" when you got glassed.

I've come up with a few;

I was at the aquarium defending an old lady's honour from a pack of jeering seals when a baby shark jumped out of its tank and bit me on the hand.
I punched a guy whose face was made of swords.
To show my everlasting love for my ex-girlfriend I started carving the name 'Cathy' into the back of my hand only to notice upon completion of the 'C' that I had done it backwards, looking in the mirror as I was doing it, and gave up from there. As a further aside - I later discovered that she spelt it 'Kathy' anyway.

This would be especially fun for the kids. If you think you have trouble getting them to wash the dishes now, they will be fighting each other for dibs on whoever can get to the sink first! Can you imagine the scenario: "...MOM!!! Joey washed ALL of the dishes and he wouldn't let me help!"

"Oh, the hand? Cut it washing the dishes, baby. At least, that's what I told my insurer."

Maybe I can find a picture of a bassenette to link up.
