This just in...

Please note that if you put the tea pan on the back burner and then inadvertantly turn on the front burner, which has a towel on it, said towel will sprout flames and fill the house with smoke.

This has been a public service announcement from your dumbass pirate.

Isn't this the second time in a month I tried to burn the house down making tea?
I think it is.

Funny thing but the same thing happens when you leave a pizza box in the oven and then turn on the oven! Go figure!

How coincidental! I just almost set a paper towel on fire by leaving it draped over my George Foreman!

If you would have just stuck to firetrucks, hookers and goats...the whole tea thing would never happen.

Don't you ever learn?

I burned down my dorm room (well actually the curtains burned and my roomies sterio melted) when I let the hot pot go bone dry.

Tea is very dangerous.
Stick to hot chocolate.

That's it Billy, you are heretofore prohibited from attempting to use the stove.

Ms M - only problem with that is that people around here like to eat and I'm pretty much the only one that cooks. While I'd like the vacation, we'd all starve to death.

Same thing happens when you stick a towel in the oven to remove a pan.

Point taken.

And did you know if you do the same thing with a plate, the plate will explode into a million pieces?

Don't try it...just trust me. I know. ;)
