Kinda random question ...

TV front

So. Just for argument's sake.

You were ever-so-politely asked to blanch vegetables whilst your significant other was out charring fowl flesh on the grill ...

And the only pot not in the dishwasher, which was at that moment running through its cycle, was the giant pasta pot.

You add a small amount of water and put it on the front burner of the stove, turning the control to "high."

A few moments later you smell something particularly acrid, but convince yourself it's coming from outside of the house.

A few moments after that you can no longer trick yourself into believing the smell is a figment of your imagination and you quickly find your way to the stove only to realize you have, once again, turned on the wrong burner.

And that the smell was emanating from this ...

TV back

So ... This is my question ye old wise interwebbers ...

What portion of the "I CAN'T BELIEVE YOU MELTED THAT" pie should the person who placed a black television remote control on the back burner of a black stove top be forced to eat?

Tiny sliver?


or Most of the pie?

Most! 3/4 for sure!

Riddle me this: does the remote work the television if one is standing at the stove? Because that will help to solve the mystery of why it was there in the first place.

Are you guys laughing about this yet?

There is a television in the kitchen. Usually the remote is sitting on the shelf next to the TV.

I never expected it to be on the stove.

And we were laughing almost as soon as we aired out the house.

I'm laughing WITH you, truly I am!! Um... I'm saying AT LEAST half of the pie... Who puts a remote on the stove?? :)
