But can someone, anyone, shed any light on WHY he hates Henry the vacuum? Because it looks like an awesome vacuum. My daughter would love to have it.

Is it made by atheists for atheists?? Did his mother have an affair with one? Is Obama secretly a cute vacuum cleaner?

I am truly mystified. Is it a pop culture reference I am not getting?

If there is anything I simply cannot abide, it’s random appliance hate. Well, mostly I’m ambivalent about it.

Thanks,

C

PS: I realise I’d have better luck understanding the secret messages in alphabet soup, but I have to ask.

Dare I give him credit for a play on words. 
Vacuum is a scientific word:  Definition of VACUUM
                            1: emptiness of space
                            2: a space absolutely devoid of matter

Thus, he is cleaning the Vacuum of space with a vacuum cleaner and replacing it with Woo.

Quoting B’s Mom:

I would like to continue this discussion with you, Occam, but I’ve just had a fight with my hand mixer and it beat me. I didn’t realise I was at such whisk before. Canadian appliances are altogether evil.

I didn’t realize you Canadians had appliances that mix your hands.  I’m l-oven to spoon with you, but your boyfriend would probably tell me to go fork myself.  Understand that I’m not being critical, that is, I’m not dishing you, but your puns bowl me over.  LOL

I showed this to my boyfriend, and he didn’t totally pan the idea. I looked at my colander, and I have free time next month, but just a ladle bit. Be careful though, I don’t want to ban you like I had to bain marie.

And replying to Harry:  A boss in an adjacent department tended to think of himself as very clever with words.  After a half hour listening to him in a meeting, I wrote the following, which some of my table mates enjoyed.

For those whose humor is self-perceived,
who say with an expression bereaved,
As if their heart were rended,
No pun intended,
Fear not, no pun achieved.

Lettuce be clear.  I don’t want to de-sieve you, but a time with you at my age would be a real heart strainer.  I’m sure I’d turnip my toes, even though you’d be the grill of my dreams.  I don’t want t-ruffle your feathers, but we’ve got to stop meating like this.

Fear not, I have taken stock of the situation. I would be loin if I said punning ever got me any action. It is but my sad attempt to curry favours. When I was younger, I would do it by showing my braziers.

It is wonderfully awful, I know. But don’t worry, it will only be unbearably painful for an inordinate amount of time, and then you too will find yourself so afflicted.

Here, have a welcome sash.

Hmm… Apparently that was a humor fail on my part, as I do enjoy puns. wink

Take care,
