Don't Microwave A Hard Boiled Egg Then Poke It

I thought Dashiell Hammett, James Cain, and Raymond Chandler had made that perfectly clear.

A friend of mine, Bob (Last Name Withheld), once cooked a raw egg, not in the shell, on a plate in the microwave oven at work. He removed the plate, stuck his face close to take a good look, and said, "Huh! It came out pretty good!"
At that instant the yolk exploded hot goo all over his face.
It hurt but he had to laugh along with his co-workers.

Yolk poke smokes jamoke.

He's got egg in his face.

Didn't Huge Egg Explosion open for The Mothers of Invention?

If you want to see something equally fun, put an *unneeded* CD or DVD in Mr. Microwave and give it about 15 seconds on High.

Two warnings:
1. Your CD/DVD will be ruined. You have been warned.
2. I am not responsible for the smell of burnt plastic in your office.

Still, it's a really cool simulated lightening effect!

Seriously, this is the government-approved method to dispose of confidential CD/DVD data that you never, ever want recovered.

Pirate Boy, admit you stole that technique from Hillary!

"Don't Microwave A Hard Boiled Egg Then Poke It"

There's a joke with the punch line "Love Thyself" in there somewhere, but I can't seem to find it...


I thought poking was outlawed, except on Facebook.

By the way, where is the "book" part of Facebook?
