Helpful Household Hint #101

Did you know that the outer diameter on a cat food can is almost exactly equal to the inner diameter of a standard sink disposal opening? I didn't know either until I dropped one just now and it got stuck. It's out now, but damn, it's been a long day.

Crap....

I probably wouldnt be having a disposal after that.

Should I mention that I bought a new hammer? LOL

That's something they should have taught you in Physics 101...

Good to know...

I doubt that little piece of knowledge will ever be used around la casa Loser, but still...

BC - the disposal is nice, except when things go wrong...

dr s - we didn't cover anything that practical.

LL - don't you feed your dog the good stuff? It's been a while since I dealt with dog food, but I think the can diameter is about the same, just taller.

I am so sorry. I can't stop laughing. honest. Here you have a picture of a super hero up and a doctorates in physics and you looked at that can like it was an obstical? I adore your humor. You made a long week worth it with this post! TY TY.

PS
I'd have just stuk a phillips head screw driver through the can and fished it out.

Solution - only feed dry food.

Oh, and get you some claw-proof outerwear for the inevitable feline pissery that's bound to follow.

Sorry doll... I'm afraid the ol' 50lb bag isn't gonna drop down the disposal any time soon...
