Exploding Kittens is from the guy who does The Oatmeal web comic. We bought an expansion pack for Exploding Kittens at Goodwill, but I'm not sure if we have the base game. We have a lot of games.

The expansion pack isn't much use without the base game.

I try to keep the use of canned foods to a minimum, but there are times when it's handy to have a tin of ham available for a quick salad lunch, as today.

My culinary skills are nowhere near those of Gordon Ramsay, but I have (silently) given him a run for his money when it came to the use of colloquial language when wielding the tin opener in the past.

Neither of the openers I had were much good, and if you didn't start the opening process near the vertical seam of the tin, you were doomed to haunt the kitchen for all eternity.

Never did I manage to open a can neatly or smoothly.

I have come within a hair's breadth, on more than one occasion, of performing an accidental amputation of a finger or two such was the jagged nature of the steel before me.

Desperate times call for desperate measures, so last week I bought a stainless steel can opener at Marks & Spencer.

It was a hefty 7.50 (a smidgin under $10) but worth every penny. Minimum effort required to produce an A1 result.

That's my 'can do' attitude at work. In a manner of speaking.

Me too, and they don't make 'em like they used to. Mine is from the 1960s. Still works like a charm.



After my mom gave me this beauty years ago, she went through another five or six that were all shit.

I had an electric one until the spring that holds that handle up got weak enough to let the damn thing turn itself on. After an unknown period of time it filled the house with smoke.

A buddy's brother had a toaster short circuit while they were away. Burned their house to the ground.

I never leave the toaster plugged in. Ever.

Now, with your can opener tale, I can never leave the can opener plugged in either.

Have to remember millions of toasters and can openers don't combust.

It's not those I'm worried about.

I had a Black and Decker worked great and when it died I bought another. It wasn't so good as it left the can lids ragid. So we were yard sailing and found a 60's type for 2 bucks. We have had that one for at least 17 years. Still going strong.

I use a manual opener and a P-38 army opener in a pinch.

Got about a half dozen of 'em.

Don't know where any of them are.

Confused of Aylesbury here.

I'm puzzled by the reference to a P-38 army opener.

I believe that the P-38 was the Lockheed Lightning aircraft.

I crave a disambiguation.
