CAWOW! And Are Those Ear Plugs?

This is what happens when your husband is an electrician with too many fucking pockets in his work jacket, and you decide to be a nice wife and wash his shit...

A new take on the CAWOW! I randomly opened up the dictionary, and pointed to a word with my eyes closed. Here 'tis:

per·ni·cious - adj.

1. Tending to cause death or serious injury; deadly: a pernicious virus.
2. Causing great harm; destructive: pernicious rumors.
3. Archaic. Evil; wicked.

Can anyone come up with a caption describing the above photo using the word pernicious? I'm too fucking lazy to do it myself. You know, having had to WASH the WASHER and all. I just can't be bothered.

Shane- Cheers right back atchya. Damn. You guys are good.

i am too sleepy to use a word like pernicious...but i find some bizarre things in my washer, too.

All I can do is manage to say you need to be thankful that Sharpie didn't open in there, because I don't even know if Magic Erasers can take out Sharpie. Sharpies are one of my favorite things in the whole world, but not in the washer. BAD.

Also... no loose change? No cash? We have a "if you find in the laundry, it's yours" rule.

Zube Girl said...

Justdawn- Yeah. I'm kind of lax on the emptying pockets bit. I have had lots of clean money in my day.

Bonanza- I see 35 cents in there. It's in the upper left hand corner by two packets of ear plugs, and a little light bulb thing. And you are SO right about the sharpie.

You think that's bad, wait till you have kids leaving all sorts of things in their pockets.

My wits are not about me this weekend but Pernicious Pocket Poop comes to mind.

I find the most horrific things here when I use the dorm washers- I use them rarely. It is hard to empty all the pockets anyway.

Ooooooooh, I never knew that electricians carried around yellow Light Bright pegs in their pockets! What do they use them for? Something pernicious, no doubt!

How about 'pernicious damage to technology'?

Zube Girl said...

Junebee- I am SURE that will be a hoot!

Alice- Heh. Somewhere out in the world there is a photo of ME in a dorm washer. There may have been just a little embibing going on that evening.

Librarian- He carries the most bizarre shit, I swear.

Kyknoord- Precisely. I'm really surprised I didn't hear that key clanging around. What the hell could that be the key to?
