Refrigerator Cones   (+6, -1)  [vote for, against]
Keep Space Open!

These small orange refrigerator cones bear a striking resemblance to their larger traffic cousins.

Cones are placed in the refrigerator in place of an object that is removed to ensure that it location is not filled by some other object. Which can be a major problem in a busy household a commercial kitchen, or a communal work refrigerator.

Especially useful for cooks around the holidays who have to ensure sufficient room for left over turkey or ham for example, cones can be placed around the perimeter of the area to be kept open.

When not in use the cones stack and store just like their larger cousins.

Get yours today.

Can they have flashing lights on top of them?. - dangles croissant tantalisingly, awaiting answer, then gives it anyway. ;-) +

//cones can be placed around the perimeter of the area to be kept open// How do you distinguish between three cones marking out a triangule from three independent cones marking out three small, independed areas? Perhaps you also need a miniature version of that plastic numpty-tape that they use between the cones?

Do you also have to use cones and caution tape to mark off a spill, until it can be thoroughly investigated?

only if you want to.

[po] i figured you did so I will just remove the remarks.

[xenzag] [maxwellBuchanan] Those are both excellent suggestions, would you like me to incorporate them or do they work better as add-on options to the core product?
-- jhomrighaus, Mar 25 2007

sp.: core product
-- MaxwellBuchanan, Mar 25 2007

Uh Maxwell, thats what it says and I think its spelled right. What should it be? Help me out dude!
-- jhomrighaus, Mar 25 2007

Oh bugger bugger and thrice bugger. I meant to say "sp.: cone product", thereby making a mildly humorous pun. But it all went pear shaped and now I will go and bury my head in a bucket.

So there's people around shoving random objects into free space in a refigerator? And they would stop their nefariousness when confronted with orange place holder cones? Or might not these objects be in dire need of some cooling?

loon, you must live alone and have never visited a commercial kitchen. In my house with 2 kids and my wife about the refrigerator is in a near constant state of flux.
