Ludicrosity!

Inventing new words? Take THAT, Sarah Palin! :P

The topic of ludicrous directions has been brought up before, but one just struck me funny.

I'm getting ready to bake a frozen pumpkin pie, so I took it out of the freezer and read the directions so I'd know what to pre-heat the oven to. The very first instruction caught my eye:

"1. Remove pie from freezer."

:eek2:

Yeessss....I've done that! How else would I be reading these directions? :roll:

One possibility did come to mind though...if I were trapped in the freezer with the pie. Then it would make perfect sense! Of course, someone would have to remove ME from the freezer before I could comply with the directions! :?

Which led me to the perfect solution to that dilemma. I'm going to screen print directions on all my clothes. The directions will be as follows:

"1. Remove from freezer."
"2. Stand in sink and allow to thaw for 24 hours at room temperature."


That oughta about cover it. :|

I do hope the pie also had instructions to remove it from the box before baking.
