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.
