April Fool

Here's a funny April Fool Joke: "Is Your Refrigerator Running?" Ans: yes "Well you better catch it before it gets away!"

Oh snort, ha ha hooo. That one always cracks me up.

Except this morning water was discovered on the floor near the refrigerator so here's how the joke went:

" Is your refrigerator running?" ans: efff no! " get ready to get the shaft by GE, have a good day, loser"

The fridge is a whirlpool, how screwed do you think I'll get? I need a cigarette.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Fascinating Discovery: Yes serendipity showed me that even minor household emergencies can yield gold. As I searched for the ice chest to put our rapidly rotting food into, I found these Mummified toads, right inside the cooler. Magnificent specimens, one even rigor mortised in a jumping pose. Sweet.






They go well with my mummified turtle and scorpion don't you think? (scorpion was a pet, he mummified on his own. Turtle was found partially dried and then buried in salt, in a hot garage for two years, but alas he still has a slight odor. The toads are perfect- the non-jumping one rattles if you shake him just like a maraca)

SEAR/GE/WHIRLPOOL ALL SUCK!

Oh sure the repairman the feature is all "You don't need to call me cuz our appliances don't break" LIARS!

Millie said...

It's landfill time, baby. :)

Be careful what you wish for, huh? NOW you have something to blog about!

Jean Knee:

Please tell me you're joking...

Well, they say bad things come in threes, so hopefully that's yours for a while.

My grandmother was jinxed when it came to electrical appliances - she must have been one of those people who have a built in magnetic field or something. Which was funny, since her husband was an electrician...

Jean Knee said...

ther is no joke going on here


sigh

did you miss the mummies?

Bee said...

...

Bee said...

I. AM. SPEECHLESS.

Brian o Vretanos said...

Yes, I did miss the mummies. They're, er, well preserved, but they'd give me the creeps...

You should have eaten them when you had the chance. There must be some delicious French recipes.

Brian o Vretanos said...

Bee:

Are you ever? Speechless, I mean.

Jean Knee said...

does anyone know how to get that turtle to mummify? All the kids in the neighborhood love me cuz I let them see and mess with strange naturey things.
Last year it was cow bones and a mouse on a sticky trap.(they didn't get to touch the mouse)
They've seen the scorpion because he was a pet-he drew a big crowd for awhile, but the other mummies will be total surprises!!

Jean Knee said...

Oh, and, I don't think you can eat toads because they have poisinous secretions on their skin, I have a vet bill from toad licking.

Bee said...

Sure you can eat them, haven't you heard of skinless toad soup?

Brian, no not really. Even when I'm shocked I have a swear word I utter. I can't contaminate jean knee's blog though.

Jean Knee said...

yeah! she'll email it to me later and I'll giggle like a girl.

the glitter fairy said...

This has got to be the funniest blog I've read in a long time...maybe ever...Laurie

Dan said...

Maybe the refrigarator is playing an April Fools joke, I'm sure it will be fine by tommorow.

You should start chasing things in the back yard and mummy them. Mummy Max.

Lisa said...

froggy maraca! Haha! I've never been so lucky to see such a thing. You have a nice collection going on there. Save them for Lean's school projects. They may come in handy.

Tracy said...

Jean Knee- I can honestly say that after reading your comment about the neighborhood kids loving you for those reasons, I would be the neighbor hurridely herding my kids inside whenever I saw you out in your yard. No offense. But Ew.
I would have screamed like a little girl had I found the frogs in my cooler and then thrown the cooler away. No offense.

Jean Knee said...

I did wash the cooler with clorox cleanup, but really the toads weren't gross

No Cool Story said...

AAAAHHH!

Gold! Ka-ching!!

Sell it on Ebay :)

Hey It's Di said...

Ah crap! I am sorry about the fridge! That sucks!

I can relate to the frogs deal. My kids won frogs at the carnival and they somehow escaped their digs. A few weeks later while cleaning out from under the fridge, I discovered their carcasses. They were all petrified and stretched out like they were trying to escape! Poor dudes:(

dried up frog eaters, International said...

We approve!

Bee said...

jean knee, your refrigerator running?

Jean Knee said...

refrigerator now okay,
toads still dead

compulsive writer said...

Ewww. And weird. And I'm sorry about the refrigerator.

And can anybody tell me where the "d" comes from when you go from refrigerator to fridge?

I'm just asking.

Brian o Vretanos said...

frige wouldn't work - looks like "fry-j" or "freej"

Rhonda said...

I just found a petrified lizard in my garage. I would be happy to mail it to you for the collection. You need a lizard.

Melissa said...

Your collection is lovely. Simply lovely. I think.... do you charge admission for the kids to see your mummies? I would...

JeanKnee's Nosy Neighbor said...

JeanKnee's refrigerator is stuffed with dead animal carcasses. What a sicko.

Bad refrigerator karma. :(

Our broke on Monday.

Your refrigerator is a copycat.

elasticwaistbandlady said...

Our fridge is less than 4 years old and has had the compressor replaced twice. Both times we lost a lot of money in food. This time our fridge is out of warranty and we decided that instead of the repair cost plus the cost of lost groceries we'd just get a new one.

R.I.P 1,000 dollars. It was nice knowing you. :(

It was a Kenmore Elite. We owned an elite piece of sheet. We so fancy!

elasticwaistbandlady said...

Papi worked for Igloo. We have a party cooler on wheels, baby!

It doubles as a roach graveyard in its off season.

Lisa said...

Where are you?! Those dead animals are always looking at me when I pop in to see you. New pictures, please!

Lisa said...

We have a GE and the freezer has problems. Mostly it's the ice maker. I've paid money to fix it once. It still doesn't work. I just can't stand to part with the big bucks to fix it again!!! Good luck.

Fete et Fleur said...

WOW! They really are amazing.
