Brothers… all the same

My youngest son was talking about how he wishes we could hurry and invent teleportation.

“We’d already have it if it weren’t for the Marx Brothers.”

I thought about this for a while, but could remember no scenes relating to teleportation in any Marx Brothers movies.

I asked, “How did the Marx Brothers ruin our chances at teleportation?”

“Because they invented the airplane, so everyone focused on that instead!”

“Um, you mean the Wright Brothers.”

Cheap microwave

Don’t have a microwave at your work?  Just do what I do!  Set the portable heater on high and put your muffin in front!  Works like a charm.

My brilliant idea

When I went to the public pool the other day, I started thinking how I could hide my wallet and keys so I could swim without anyone taking them.  Suddenly, I came up with a brilliant idea! You bring a bag and staple a musical greeting card to the opening flap.  (Obviously, you have to get a bag with a flap.) Then when a theif opens your bag, a nice little tune will play and hopefully deter them from digging around in there.  Cheap and effective!  I’m sure this will take off at pools and beaches all over the world now.
