Microwave Soap Grenade!

I was suddenly reminded of my failed Microwave Soap Grenade invention when I came across this great little invention called The Nana Saver!

It’s for people who are too small to eat a full banana and don’t want the leftover piece to turn brown. I myself am a small person (but not so small that I can’t finish a banana you a-holes!) and I often cut half a banana over my Vector cereal! This little invention would be kinda worth having, although I guess I could just be a man and… no not deal with the piece turning brown, I was going to say be a man and throw the other half in the garbage! Just joking Mother Earth!

Ok anyways, about my Microwave Soap Grenade! Check this out…

I was cleaning my microwave a while ago, and I was having a hard time getting all these bits of lasagna off the walls. I thought about how much of a sucker I was for having to scrub this hard. Then it hit me, I could just invent a microwave popcorn bag full of soap that you intentionally let explode in your microwave! I could kick back in my lazy boy and watch as science cleaned my microwave for me!

The first person I shared my idea with laughed and said “too bad it’s already been done you idiot!” Apparently some other lazy jackass already had the same idea and actually made a product out of it.

Well guess what you jackass, I’m going to have the last laugh! I am going to ruin your business by presenting the cheaper (albeit less cool – since my soap bomb would have come packaged like a grenade with a removable pin) solution.

How to clean your microwave with a lemon!


Yes, I am that petty.

PS – I came across the Nana Saver on The Presurfer.

Artist Spotlight: j.frede


Beautifully combined images in this series by Los Angeles-based artist j.frede. Made with seemingly banal landscape photographs purchased at flea markets and arranged into a single scene, these collages effectively merge different times and places together, creating entirely new landscapes. The gorgeous framing is really makes this simple idea quite striking. More images from Fiction Landscapes below.
