The Vegetable Caper

by Bob Dewar, Mary Lou Dewar, Alan Dewar, Jeff Dewar, Jeannette & Megan Dewar, David Dewar, Shane Dewar and Doug Dewar

When she finally finished writing the book, she allowed herself to eat her favourite vegetable.

Unfortunately for her, the fiddleheads had not been adequately rinsed after the 5 washings, and now she was breathing out bubbles all over her manuscript.

"That's the last time I wash vegetables in the dishwasher," she said to herself, making a mental note to try the washing machine next time.

Five days later, the washing machine exploded due to attempts to wash coconuts in it, thus blasting the full, 2-liter bottle of vinegar into the 10 kg box of baking soda beneath poor Hieda's writing desk!

So she went to wash the vegetable in the sink, but the sink blew up.

"Why are all my appliances made of Explodium??" Hieda moaned whinily.

Next thing you know, the home blew up.

And the moral of the story is, "Vegetables are not good for you!"
